SCHWARZENEGGER : AMERICA IN CRISI.CALIFORNIA IN DEFAULT.

Los Angeles 1.12.08 (corsera.it) Ci eravamo abituati a vederlo battersi contro criminali di ogni tipo,e fu proprio un suo film ad anticipare la messa nera dei terroristi islamici,che si preparavano con un missile a colpire la città di Los Angeles.Alcuni anni dopo puntualmente alcuni aerei fecero esplodere le Torri Gemelle e si infilarono addirittura dentro il Pentagono,la fortezza per antonomasia del potere militare USA.

Arnold Schwarzenegger adesso deve fronteggiare la più grande crisi economica del dopo guerra e la sua California entro marzo aprile potrebbe essere "out of cash" senza più soldi .Il debito stellare della capitale del cinema potrebbe sfiorare i 28 billion di dollari entro il 2010.

The state projects a $28-billion deficit by mid-2010, but at the current rate is on track to run out of cash by February or March.

Schwarzenegger called lawmakers back to Sacramento after they adjourned in August to deal with the same set of issues. But that emergency session ended unsuccessfully last Tuesday when a Democratic proposal to cut billions of dollars from schools, healthcare, welfare and other state services and triple vehicle license fees failed to win Republican votes necessary for passage.

Fiscal measures require the approval of two-thirds of both the Senate and Assembly, in effect giving the GOP minority veto power. But the November elections changed little in the partisan standoff: Democrats picked up two seats in the 80-member Assembly, bringing their majority to 51.

No seats changed hands in the Senate, where there are only 24 sitting Democrats because Mark Ridley-Thomas was elected to the Los Angeles Board of Supervisors, leaving a vacancy.

Of the 120 legislators, only 28 are new, and several of those have served before. "There may be a very few that are really new," Schwarzenegger said.

The fiscal emergency Schwarzenegger declared today requires the Legislature to take action within 45 days. If the lawmakers do not, they are not allowed to take action on anything else. However, as a practical matter, it is easy for lawmakers to take some minimal action to meet that threshold.
