California’s McClintock Offers to Give Arnold His Ideas By Scott Ott
In a show of Republican solidarity, California gubernatorial candidate Tom McClintock today offered to let Arnold Schwarzenegger borrow his ideas and plan for reviving the debt-ridden state.
“Arnold has celebrity, but no real Republican game plan,” said Mr. McClintock, a state senator. “I have actual experience, and a conservative plan for California, but little celebrity. Since he can’t give me his celebrity, I’m offering to give him my ideas.”
Mr. Schwarzenegger responded to Mr. McClintock’s offer by saying, “Don’t you worry about my plan. I’m going to clean house in Sacramento, because we’ve been taxed and taxed and taxed and taxed. And even though I might raise taxes in an emergency, I don’t like taxes. Tax, tax, tax, tax, tax, tax….all day long.
It was Mr. Schwarzenegger’s second major economic policy statement in as many days.
