Remember when Arnold Schwarzenegger was the Republican even liberals sort of admired, what with his environmentalism and all that? This week, the California governor proposes to cut more than $5 billion in state spending by drastically squeezing, among other things, health care, education, welfare, and parks. He would end treatment for breast and cervical cancer for illegal immigrants and women older than 65. Testing and counseling for HIV would be slashed. Many state parks might have to close. Not exactly padding the presidential resumé.
