Another $8 Billiion ???
SAN FRANCISCO - A federal judge has scolded California officials for failing to provide the billions of dollars a court-appointed receiver says is needed to upgrade the state's prison health care system.
U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson made it clear Monday he expects California to pay $8 billion for seven new inmate medical facilities. But he stopped short of immediately holding Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and state Controller John Chiang in contempt for failing to turn over the money.
Medical care in California's prisons is so bad it has been ruled unconstitutional. Henderson appointed a receiver to run the prison medical system after finding that an average of an inmate a week was dying from neglect or malpractice.
Didn't CA just request an Emergency $8 Billion dollar loan from the Fed Govt or it will run out of cash at the end of the month??? THAT WAS BEFORE THIS RULING!!!!!!!
Now CA has to come up with an "uexpected" additional $8 Billion????? A cool $16 Billion.....and growing.......
This is just one state......
