Gov. Schwarzenegger’s complete failure to provide leadership in dealing with the budget crisis has led to a $26 billion gap, and his budget ‘solutions’ include eviscerating many vital services that all Californians depend upon. He has displayed a startling lack of empathy to those whose lives would be devastated by his deep, unnecessary cuts.

(from New York Times Magazine, 7/5/09)
"Schwarzenegger reclined deeply in his chair, lighted an eight-inch cigar and declared himself 'perfectly fine,' despite the fiscal debacle and personal heartsickness all around him. 'Someone else might walk out of here every day depressed, but I don’t walk out of here depressed,' Schwarzenegger said. Whatever happens, 'I will sit down in my Jacuzzi tonight,' he said. 'I’m going to lay back with a stogie.'"

That kind of flip attitude may fly in Hollywood, but it doesn’t sit well with the millions of Californians whose lives are on the line in this crisis.

While Governor Schwarzenegger kicks back with his cigar, middle class families are suffering, police and firefighters are facing layoffs, and seniors, kids and people with disabilities are getting hit the hardest by the budget crisis. In fact, the Governor has imposed a new fee on low-income seniors and people with disabilities who receive home health care. He cut $10 billion dollars for education, and has proposed another $6 billion in cuts, slashing education by nearly 25%. And he eviscerated services for seniors, kids and people with disabilities by cutting over $1 billion from vital programs.

Unless he changes course, the Governor’s legacy will be broken promises and his utter failure to lead in a time of crisis.We can’t sit back while he lets California's future go up in smoke- we must act now to put a stop to the Governor's bad budget policies.

HOW YOU CAN TAKE ACTION:

*Call the Governor at (916) 445-2841 today, and tell him "Governor, if you want someone to blame for the state’s problems, you need to start by looking in the mirror."

*Attend a protest at the Governor's offices on WEDNESDAY July 15th at 11:30am - see locations and details above.

*Urge your friends, family and co-workers to call the Governor and attend an event in your area.
