That great free-market supporter and Milton Friedman groupie Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is the topic of a Sacramento Bee story today: “Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Tuesday called on Congress to pass a health care overhaul that would require all Americans to carry insurance, but he warned that California will get stuck with a bill of more than $1 billion a year for expanding Medicaid if the federal government doesn’t provide more money to the states.”
So there we have it. Freebies for me, higher taxes for thee. You can take the guy out of Hollywood, but you can’t . . .
