Alleged Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger said today that illegal aliens are not the reason California is going bankrupt, despite acknowledging that they do cost the state as much as $6 billion a year - or 14% of the state's massive $42 billion budget deficit.
He urged voters to support six ballot proposals in next month's special election that he says will fix things (though they won't). He is right to say that the problem is a broken system in Sacramento, a system that can hardly be trusted to get itself out of the jam they got us in.
If Arnold is serious about passing his props, he's certainly not going to gain any support by claiming that illegal aliens aren't a major part of the problem.
