The Governator Iz Buzy

"Fixing" California:

Schwarzenegger called for overhauls including changing the state's tax and pension systems and allowing for private prisons, red flags to powerful unions and their allies.

Schwarzenegger's jobs plan is part of a five-point package that also includes tax credits for first-time home buyers and lower sales taxes for green technology, and measures to limit lawsuits against businesses and make it harder for environmental regulations to block big construction projects.

Oh my. This sounds like he's taking with one hand and giving with the other.

He also complained about California giving more to the federal government than it gets back. Some states are net givers to the federal pot, others net takers, and it's always fun to correlate that with the blue and red Americas.
