Peddling Fraud of His Own

In selling his budget plan, Governor Schwarzenegger demonized the state's In-Home Supportive Services program, and the caregivers for the most vulnerable, as purveyors of fraud and abuse.
It was all total bullsh*t, with no evidence to back any of it up. Yet the Democrats went along with program changes that will cost more than the savings, because the fraud and abuse Arnold insisted was there, isn't. And the Democrats never made him back up his claims.
But at least the state's wealthiest residents can sleep soundly at night, knowing that Arnold and the state's GOP are still there to protect them.
