Arnold Uses His Veto Pen

Governor Schwarzenegger has today announced a veto of two bills recently passed by the California legislature.

Today he vetoed a law that would have given homosexuals special protection from "discrimination" in public school textbooks and classrooms -- how discrimination would have been defined is anyone's guess -- saying homosexuals are already protected from discrimination under the state Constitution.

The Governor also announced he will veto the law which would establish a "single payer" state-run health care system.

Conservatives such as myself are in a quandary when it comes to whether or not to vote for the governor's re-election. Governor Schwarzenegger has taken a number of positions with which I very strongly disagree. While he made a good decision today to prevent the further encroachment of the homosexual agenda into classrooms, just a few days ago he supported a law preventing any school with a moral conduct code from receiving state funding.

If a Democrat were governor, we would now be facing being forced into a government healthcare system.

Is half a loaf better than none?

You can end your quandry by just moving out of the state! Michigan's weather is lousy but the politics are tolerable. We swing back and forth. A few more solid conservatives here would help out a lot.

Thanks, I'll keep that in mind! :) I think it won't be too long before it's too crazy here to put up with anymore, between the legislature and the energy prices...I just read our electricity's going up another 6% in February.

Thanks for stopping by!
Best wishes, Laura
