Governor Schwarzenegger Wants $8 Billion from the Feds

The joy of living in California. The wonderful climate (it’s going to be 70 and sunny today). The beach is just a 15 minute drive from my house. I live in the safest city in the country. And our state has the most dysfunctional government in the world.

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA) will be asking Uncle Sam for $8 billion to help close the state’s usual $20 billion deficit. Unfortunately, the Democrats in the legislature know only one method of decreasing a deficit (raising taxes) while the Republicans prefer cutting programs. When an unstoppable force meets an immovable object nothing happens.

Such is life in the Bronze Golden State
