Health Care Supporters Dropping Faster Than Democrat Candidates

The latest is the Governator who after actually considering what the health care bill will entail decides that no, he won't be back:

In his annual “State of the State” message today, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger withdrew his support for the health care reform measures Democrats are attempting to finish up in Washington, DC.

“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,” the governor said.

The White House had in the past brought much attention to Schwarzenegger’s previous support for the effort.

“Health care reform, which started as noble and needed legislation, has become a trough of bribes, deals and loopholes,” Schwarzenegger said. “You’ve heard of the bridge to nowhere. This is health care to nowhere.”
Arnold, dude, you need better speech writers. "health care to nowhere?" Pathetic.

Sorry for the slight digression but Schwarzenegger is realizing what many of us have been saying since the beginning of the debate; someone will have to pay. It's either the states or the feds but in both cases it's the citizens. Ahnuld got caught up in the liberal mindset that government revenue is his money to work with and forgot that it's money taken by force from workers and businesses. It's purely and simply tax money, which by definition is not money created by a good product or idea but taken under threat of prosecution from those who are the lifeblood of the country.

Perhaps if Arnie didn't have DiFi and Babs Boxer as his senators and was blessed with elected representatives with better political cunning (read smarter) who could have held out and got a deal like Ben Nelson did, his states' health care costs could be paid by wage earners in "clinger" states like Pennsylvania, Alabama or Oklahoma.
