SACRAMENTO, CA – Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has come forward saying he backs health care reform.
Governor of California Schwarzenegger is the most recent of a handful of Republicans to come forward in support of health care reform. While most other Republicans who have crossed the aisle to support the proposal have met with serious criticism from their party, Schwarzenegger said if anyone objects they can “take it outside.”
“My state is facing a budget crisis. I don’t even get health insurance anymore. Last week I got sick, no way! This system does not work!” Schwarzenegger said this to great applause.
“There are those within my party who would say that what I am doing is wrong. To them I say: Bring it! What are you going to do Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell? Give me a talking to? I could bench press you! Bring it on Fox News! Sean Hannity I will make you cry in front of your mother! My state is poor, people! And if you don’t like it, you can take it up with Mr. T-800 and Conan the Destroyer.” He said this while holding up both of his fists.
Mr. Schwarzenegger’s support of the bill has yet to be formally acknowledged by the Republican powers that be. Insider sources confirm that they are scared to criticize him.
