A taxing address
|Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger gave his weekly radio address this week and the topic dovetails well with his reelection: Not raising taxes.|
Here's the start:
Hi, this is Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger with another California Report. Today, I want to talk to you about taxes and why my administration will not raise them. When I took office almost three years ago our state's finances were a disaster. We had a $22 billion debt and a $16.5 billion structural deficit. There were some politicians that said that the only way we get out of our financial crisis was to raise taxes. But, higher taxes was not what California needed.
