Schwarzenegger Opposes Preschool Initiative

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has announced his opposition to Rob Reiner's Proposition 82 "universal preschool" initiative, on the grounds that he will not support a tax increase.

Prior to this week the governor had declined to state his position on the measure. He announced his opposition after two Democrats vying for the Democrat nomination for governor announced their support.

Among the newspapers editorializing this week against Prop. 82 are the Press-Telegram and, perhaps surprisingly, the liberal L.A. Times.

I am hopeful that by June the voting public might be educated enough on the proposition's flaws to defeat it, but I remain concerned that there are too many Californians willing to let someone else ("the rich") pay the bill for their "free" preschool.
