Schwarzenegger compares California’s woes to euro zone
SACRAMENTO (Reuters) – California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger on Friday compared the state’s predicament to that of weaker euro zone economies and called for scrapping the state welfare system to close a $19.1 billion budget gap.
The movie star turned governor said California, the most populous U.S. state with an economy that would be the eighth largest in the world, faced the same dilemma of dismal growth and budget gaps as Greece, Spain and Ireland.
Could you stop referring to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger by prefacing it with…actor turned governor?
First, we all know he was an actor.
Second, do you list everyone else’s previous jobs?
Either list them all, or stop listing his.
