Thank you for covering the protest in Burbank against Gov. Arnold
Schwarzenegger ("Protesters get pumped up," Saturday). If he is doing
such a good job with the budget, as the visitor from Texas says, then
why are his approval ratings tanking, now at 37%? He was voted into
office on the promise he would advocate for the "people."
Who are the people, if not teachers, firefighters and nurses, who
make modest salaries, work for the health of the public, and ask only
to have decent benefits?
Schwarzenegger should spend his energy honestly seeking consensus
with the legislature instead of antagonizing it and demonizing
hard-working Californians, while raising huge sums of money for his
special interest initiatives.
