On the day after seeing his special ballot measures not only shot down, but shot down and engulfed in roaring flames, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger told reporters in Washington, D. C. that he got the message.
“An overwhelming majority of people told Sacramento, 'Go and do your work yourself, don't come to us with your problems’. The message was clear from the people, ‘go all out and make those cuts and live within your means’," he said.
You’re pretty much on the money there “Ah-nold”, but now, the question is, “what are you going to do about it?”
Well, how about not threatening to cut the paychecks of the people who actually make this state run? How about cutting your salary and the salaries of the members of the California State legislature? There’s a good start. How about stop footing the bill for the medical costs of illegal aliens? That would make a HUGE dent in the budget deficit. It works like this:
ER Admin Clerk: Are you a citizen of the United States of America, legally able to hold a job?
ER AC: Then it is my duty to inform you that without upfront payment in cash or some sort of medical insurance, you cannot be served in this facility. Good day.
Patient: But I…
ERAC: Security! Remove this deadbeat from the premises and have him turned over to INS for deportation. Get cash, get legal or get out.
See? That wasn’t so hard, now was it?
Did you know that if you’re an American Citizen in Mexico and you end up in an ER, you’re not allowed to leave the country until you pay your medical bill in full? MY version of the single payer health care system works like this: anyone who requires medical assistance must have a single party responsible for his own care – himself!
This idea that we have to layoff teachers is stupid. First of all, even though I am vehemently opposed to state run schools, they are the LAST ones who should be cut. Without teachers you morons, nobody learns anything. If we stop giving welfare checks to people who are able to work but just don’t, stop providing free health care to illegal aliens and actually lower corporate taxes in California, you might actually see companies want to move to California.
Didn’t anyone notice what happened a few years ago when corporate taxes in California went up? COMPANIES LEFT THE STATE! Hello? McFly?
I’m serious when I say this, lower the corporate tax rates in California, stop spending money on ALL SERVICES for illegal aliens and stop giving money to people who won’t get a fricking job and the state’s economic problem is solved. Now if I can figure that out, why the hell can’t Sacramento?
