Arnold wants to layoff civil servants (state workers) and keep the private contractors whose yearly contracts are $240,000.00 per year. When he lays off state workers they will no longer put money back into the economy but receive unemployment benefits from the government, which means the government will be giving them money not to work. Beside when he furloughs state workers they pay less taxes, so again the state will receive less revenue from them. Isn't this the problem anyway? People are unemployed so they cannot put money back into the System? There are many small businesses that will close because state workers will not be able to purchase their products. Arnold has no clue on how to run a government - its complicated. This is what happens when you elect a governor who has no experience other than acting in movies.

I co-signed a student loan for my daughter who defaulted on the loan. By the time I found out she had defaulted on the loan (a couple months) they had added thousands of dollars on the loan. I explained the situation and asked if they could forgive the interest on the loan, because I would start paying the loan - I was told "NO". The people servicing the loans are from another country who can barely speak english and the entire situation has been difficult. Why are they not processing these loans in America, I know many unemployed Americans who would appreciate that job. Can you imagine how pissed off I am when the US Government gave Wall Street Billions of dollars that I have to pay for. One report was each American will have to pay $2,000.00 to bail out Wall Street. That is the amount I wanted them to forgive in interest. You can probably tell I am mad as HELL.
