Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says he will veto the budget compromise worked out over the weekend by California’s legislators. And it sounds like the lawmakers are poised try to override his veto. What a mess! Mercury News columnist Patty Fisher has a piece today, Who’s really to blame for the budget mess? Who do you think she points the finger at? Dems? Repubs? Gov. Schwarzenegger? Nope. She says it’s you and me, citizens of this democracy. The ones who voted for term limits, Prop. 13, the law that requires a budget to be passed by two-thirds of legislators…the ones to passed all kinds of propositions requiring spending on this and that, but without setting up the funding to support them. It’s you and me, baby.
