Schwarzenegger ends budget saga with more cuts


features.csmonitor.com

As he sat down cheerlessly to sign California’s $24 billion budget solution – including $16.1 billion in spending cuts – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said Tuesday morning that the solution included “the good, the bad, and the ugly.” “Good,” he said, “because we did not raise taxes, we made government live within its means, we made the necessary cuts to be fiscally responsible….

Ahhh my home state of California.
A nice place to visit but I chose not to live there.
They should do what they always do....

Create yet ANOTHER Proposition that repeals all the other propositions they have passed in the past 30 years or so that prevented the state from collecting all the taxes they need to actually run a state.
