Last night, newly elected California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger gave his first major speech to the Democrat-controlled legislature. And from his mouth came promising words for anyone worried about the current state of this state. For California’s future, Schwarzenegger’s main emphasis is to stop out-of-control spending.
Never again will government be allowed to spend money it doesn’t have.
Never again will the state be allowed to borrow money to pay for its operating expenses. […]
The alternative is economic chaos.
But the music to my ears came when Schwarzenegger vowed to not raise taxes.
A tax increase would be the final nail in California’s financial coffin.
The people of California did not elect me to destroy jobs and businesses by raising taxes.
I will not make matters worse.
And if Schwarzenegger makes good on his promises, much like he did by repealing a car tax tripling and stopping a bill that would have given driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, California will no longer have a cloud of Gray hanging over it.
