No kidding, guvner schwarzenegger's latest state budget trashes funding for mentally ill homeless individuals, and also flipped off funding to keep seniors safe.
Making good on a promise to trim the state budget, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger eliminated a $55-million program Friday that advocates say has helped thousands of mentally ill homeless people break the costly cycle of hospitalization, jails and street life.
He also struck a $17.4-million plan to protect seniors.
But mercifully, tax cuts for those who own yachts, RVs and/or planes survived the brutal cuts:
...despite the allegedly strapped conditions of the state, legislators managed to preserve a tax break for some purchasers of yachts, planes and recreational vehicles -- a measure that could cost the state as much as $45 million.
"A $45-million tax break for yacht owners stays in the budget," Steinberg said. "And a nationally recognized, incredibly effective program to end homelessness for those living with mental illness gets thrown under the bus."
