California: "Schwarzenegger Budget Would Eliminate Welfare"


Yes, that’s a real headline, from the Sacramento Bee, and yes, that means one million children on welfare may no longer be. That’s one way to move those poor people off the welfare rolls, am I right? Now that the California budget cuts choices have been announced by recently suspiciously liberal governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, we can say hello to a 10% pay cut for state workers! Essentially an end to school mental health programs! Goodbye, after-school care for low-income children. What’s more, your firefighters may (or also may not!) be paid with the money from a new insurance policy tax! A tax on, you know, the insurance people aren’t paying for the houses they can’t afford. Also greatly reduced in-home care for the elderly. Who you will presumably be eating. So long and good luck!
