The possibilities include cutting $3.6 billion from education, reducing the state’s firefighting budget by 10%, and releasing 40,000 low-risk inmates to cut prison costs, Mr. Schwarzenegger said. The state also may have to borrow $2 billion from local governments, he said.
Great Arnold, cut the programs that a bare bones government is supports to support and keep all the fat!
Arnold also stated that “This is not a scare tactic,”. Then what is it Arnold? I can come up with a long list of programs that can be be cut today with little to no impact on the majority of voters. And no those cuts do not include teachers, firefighters, policemen, state park ranges or necessary public works projects.
Please stop this crap and just make the necessary cuts! It’s like a band-aid, it’s time to close our eyes and pull it off.
