If you have any insurance, drive a gas powered vehicle, take medication, or have to pay anything to these corporations you are paying for the ads against proposition 89. They are also the BIG donors to political campaigns. In California this means mostly Democratic politicians get your money that YOU paid for insurance or energy.
Big labor, polluting corporations, and greedy HMOs want to keep control of politics. They don't want to lose their control of politicians.

NURSES got signatures and are going to their churches, community groups, and making phone calls to explain the truth. CHEVRON paid for an ad calling nurses a "special interest"
I for one am very tired of spending my days off work to keep our safe staffing law, keep unlicensed personnel from being allowed to pass meds and perform invasive procedures, and all we have accomplished to make it possible to care for our patients. I want to work to make life better instead of fighting a Democratic Speaker of the Assembly whose wife is a lobbiest for the healthcare industry that wants to avoid safe staffing and building safe buildings. THEY took our Medicare money to "give" to politicians who do their bidding. AND a governor who has NO RESPECT for nurses work.
