Quotes-start.png "If Schwarzenegger is the free-lunch governor -- he won't raise taxes and has failed to slice spending to eliminate the state's $4 billion to $5 billion structural budget shortfall -- Angelides offers free lunch followed by free desert. Angelides' recipe for state finances: No new taxes, unless you're rich, a tax-cut if you're middle class -- forget about the fact that the books don't balance as they are." Quotes-end.png

Quotes-start.png "The governor's greatest plus is his central role in improving California's business climate from the doldrums of the Gray Davis years. His fight for workers' compensation reforms, which helped to save companies billions of dollars and slowed the flight of firms to lower-cost states, properly gets the most credit." Quotes-end.png
From Schwarzenegger has earned four more years, by The San Diego Union-Tribune editorial board (The San Diego Union-Tribune, October 20, 2006) (view)
Quotes-start.png "Angelides is correct to note that Schwarzenegger is too hazy about how he plans to close the state's perpetual budget shortfall. To the extent that the challenger is more candid, however, his prescription of raising some personal income and corporate taxes is the wrong one. Schwarzenegger correctly senses that a leader with good instincts and confidence is more effective — and more inspiring — than one with a good plan and a lot of details. " Quotes-end.png

Quotes-start.png "If these rich people start moving out of California, and taking their money and their businesses with them, the state will never be able to give anyone a tax cut. The Angelides budget will look an awful lot like the Davis budget; lots of red ink and a fiscal crisis of epic proportion." Quotes-end.png
