Arrrnold is quite possibly the worst big-state governor in history.
It’s not that hard to save money, Mr. RINO. If the states had merely limited spending to inflation and population growth over the last ten years, most would have huge surpluses today. But Arrrrnold and other liberals have been busy creating vast new programs and spending buckets of money. Now we are reaping the whirlwind.
Arnie tried this with a series of Propositions that he backed (2006 I believe) Too many RATs, NEA, freeloaders and Illegals to vote against them and they all went down to defeat. At that point Arnie threw in the towel and whatever Republican principles he had left and went with the “If you can't beat the, join them’ route.
