Gov. Wants Legislators to Follow Pres. Obama’s Lead

As reported in Capitol Alert:

The Republican governor had his staff install outside his office a repeating video loop of President Barack Obama telling ABC News on Monday, “I can guarantee that the worst thing we could do would be to raise taxes when the economy is still this weak.” The display is in a case titled “State of California,” next to the displays for California counties in the State Capitol.

Here is the transcript from Diane Sawyer’s interview on ABC:

SAWYER: To all the people terrified about the deficit, $1.5 trillion more this year than taken in expected next year. Can you guarantee them still that there will be no taxes on anybody who makes under $250,000 a year? That’s still the absolute rule?

OBAMA: I can guarantee that the worst thing we could do would be to raise taxes when the economy is still this weak.
