On the October 6th,  2014 edition of Your Call, we’ll have a debate about proposition 45, the ballot initiative that gives California's state insurance commissioner veto power over rate increases. Opponents say prop 45 would undermine the Affordable Care Act. Proponents argue that without health insurance rate regulations, they will continually go up. What questions do you have about proposition 45? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Martha Kuhl, CA Nurses Association and National Nurses United board member and a registered nurse at Children Hospital in Oakland

Dario Frommer, former Assembly Democratic Majority Leader
