My wife was telling me about a young guy at work who is going to vote for Arnold because he “hates Davis.”
Why does he hate Davis? Because his tuition went up.
For those who don’t know about California, the budget requires a 2/3 vote to pass. The Republicans have just enough votes to block any tax increases, so the budget was balanced almost entirely with cuts. Cuts to state colleges required tuition increases. (The Republicans even tried to eliminate 100,000 kids from Kindergarten.) Also, Arnold and McClintock, the Republican candidates, are calling for budget cuts. Much of the budget is education. There are limits on how much they can cut K-12 so those cuts will be from the colleges. If Republicans get in office this kid’s tuition is going to skyrocket!
THIS is how our media informs our citizens.
