    What It'll Cost California To Protect the Rich
    by: Robert Cruickshank
    Fri May 14, 2010

    At today's press conference unveiling the May Revise of the 2010-11 budget, Arnold Schwarzenegger said "the budget should be a reflection of California's values."

    If that's the case, then California's values are protecting the wealthy and the large corporations from having to contribute anything to this society while making old people and children suffer.

    Arnold's California is a place where if you aren't wealthy, you don't deserve to have health, food, or any other form of economic security.

    Today's May Revise should be seen then as the bill for protecting the rich and the large corporations.

    $19 billion in cuts, particularly to health care for the kids and the elderly, and to the CalWORKS program that helps reduce child poverty, would not be proposed if Arnold Schwarzenegger valued their lives and their economic security.
