Whither Senators Feinstein, Boxer in California’s Great Hour of Need?
By John W. Lillpop
Calfornia used to be a great and propserous state. This most western state on mainland USA was at the cutting edge of technology, fashion, education, and all other human endeavors.
However, after years of ruinous governance by far left radicals in Sacramento, California is on the brink of bankruptcy and is now considered the ‘crazy aunt in the basement’ by more conventional folk.
In his recent State of the State address, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called another special session of legislators to deal with another multi-billion dollar hole in the state budget.
Moreover, California’s Kennedy-tainted governor, who recently gave President Obama an “A” for his first year in office, used the State of the State to blast ObamaCare.
As reported, in part, at Politoc.com:
“California Gov . Arnold Schwarzenegger savaged congressional plans for health reform in his 2010 State of the State address on Wednesday, calling the legislation "health care to nowhere" that's infected with "bribes, deals and loopholes."
“With the nation's largest state enduring a fiscal crisis, Schwarzenegger said California's lawmakers should vote against the bill or push to get the Medicaid subsidies that were written into the Senate bill in order to secure Sen. Ben Nelson (D-Neb.) as the 60th and passing vote for that chamber's version of reform. The deal has been attacked as the "Cornhusker Kickback."
"While I enthusiastically support health care reform, it is not reform to push more costs onto states that are already struggling while other states get sweetheart deals," Schwarzenegger said before a joint session of the California State Legislature.”
"Health care reform, which started as noble and needed legislation, has become a trough of bribes, deals and loopholes. You've heard of the bridge to nowhere. This is health care to nowhere. California's congressional delegation should either vote against this bill that is a disaster for California or get in there and fight for the same sweetheart deal Senator Nelson of Nebraska got for the Cornhusker State. He got the corn; we got the husk."
Strong language there, guv!
The big question: Have either of California’s Senators been paying attention? Does Senator Feinstein or Senator Boxer realize that ObamaCare would add to the grief and devestation of our state?
The bigger question: Do either of these two very liberal politicians have the intelligence and guts to vote against ObamaCare in California’s great hour of need?
