Sam Granato on Budget & Economy
Granato's comments come on the heels of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's declaration of a "fiscal state of emergency" in California on Wednesday, a dire situation that was created by the state's inflexible budget laws and ensuing political gridlock. Mike Lee, Granato's GOP opponent, has supported adding similar rules on the federal level by amending the US Constitution.
Granato said he opposes a so-called Balanced Budget Amendment because it will invariably result in draconian cuts that will hurt average Americans.
