SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Only a former terminator could do it. Withdraw support for President Obama’s health care reform, while demanding that the president and Congress send billions back to the state to balance the California budget.
That’s precisely California Governor Schwarzenegger did yesterday in his State of the State address.
“While I enthusiastically support health care reform, it is not reform to push more costs onto states that are already struggling while other states get sweetheart deals,” the governor said.
“Health care reform, which started as noble and needed legislation, has become a trough of bribes, deals and loopholes,” Schwarzenegger said. “You’ve heard of the bridge to nowhere. This is health care to nowhere.”
