Gov Arnold promised today that there is no way he will cut benefits, welfare or medical care for illegals. He would even release prisioners, furlough more police and firemen and lay off teachers first. WTF are those guys up in Sacramento doing?

I just dont understand that logic but then we are talking about politicians and they have no logic. Furlough the police and crime will be UP.

It is all about protecting the re-election base and little to do with what is right or what is federal law. This goes way beyond state government by the way.

Employers that hire illegals should be heavily fined. Most would then return home and a large degree of this problem would end. If there was "no" work for them as in "zero" and no hope for any, most would take their families with them too.

Time you folks had another recall election and this time don't limit it to your Governor......

I really thought Arnold had more sense than he is showing. TX isn't perfect by any means but our state government at least addresses reality for the most part.

This is the problem we have with moderate conservatives and liberals. They believe we need to be all inclusive. They think being nice to the illegals will win them votes along ethnic lines from those who do vote. They apply the same logic to all blocks of welfare recipients. It's bogus logic. Americans who work, in general, don't appreciate those on long term welfare. Ethnicity is irrelevant. No one who would ever vote a conservative ticket appreciates illegals taking their tax dollars. Reducing the burden on business to create jobs would resonate across the voting public. Arnold and the majority of the California legislature is too ignorant to realize this.

I absolutly agree with you on both counts!

The responsible CA tax payers should make it clear that all current polititions will be voted out in the following elections if the illegal issue is not addressed, untill then this will only get worse.

Yeah Tex, when we put Arnold in, it was because he talked common sense and had no political agenda. But he changed. He no longer thinks like a regular guy and has been corrupted by the system. His legislators in Sacramento haven't a clue and the whole system is breaking down. The people who paid heavy taxes for their entire working career are going to be hurt big time when this is all over. The way they consider solving the problems are really crazy.
On the other had, every single splinter group who are affected by cuts, think their cause should be left alone. Students, teachers, state and county workers, etc, are all out in the streets protesting. These problem must hit everyone across the board, but the politicians go after the lowest common denominator. They won't even consider cutting their pay or tax free perks...
