California's Governor Understands: It's the Spending

In his first major speech, California's new governor, Arnold Schwarzengegger, "reiterated his opposition to raising taxes." In a NewsMax.com wire story yesterday, Governor Schwarzenegger was quoted saying, "The fact of the matter is that we do not have a tax crisis, we do not have a budget crisis, we have a spending crisis." That is very much the situation here in Virginia where Governor Mark Warner wants to raise Virginians taxes by $1 billion a year, but where over the past two decades, the growth in spending has increased 57% faster than the rate of inflation and population growth. Can Virginians exchange our Governor Warner for California's Governor Schwarzenegger?
