  1. Hey Todd, Russ (formerly of Symantec back in the day) here.

    I think any push to reduce healthcare cost is a good thing. With almost 1/5th of Americans residing in California, it becomes a logical testbed for this. The fact that we spend many times what any other developed nation on healthcare, but we have a declining life expectancy is a travesty.
