Schwarzenegger Stops Exploiting Nurses and Patients

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Arnold Schwarzenegger has quietly dropped a law suit that aimed to suspend nurse patient ratios.

While the profit margins of health insurers and corporate health care providers continue to increase, nurses were forced to provide for more and more patients. That did not only make for poor working conditions but endangered patients. The California legislature responded to corporate irresponsibility by requiring minimum nurse patients ratios, which were signed into law by Gray Davis.

When the Terminator came into office, he had the impression that the rule of law did not apply to him and that he could supersede the law by degree. Sorry, Arnold. That's not how it works.
