Wait a minute…
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (news – web sites) hinted that raising taxes may be unavoidable, acknowledging he is under extreme pressure to offset a $14 billion budget shortfall.
“I’m going through wishful thinking that I’ll never have to go there,” the Republican governor told reporters Tuesday in a series of interviews. “Because I just don’t like it. I try to work around and find ways so we don’t have to do that.”
Weren’t people saying this beforehand? That Schwarzenegger’s plan was wishful thinking, a free lunch, so to speak? This is what happens when you elect an actor (using that term loosely).
