Arnold Schwarzenegger on This Week

Arnold Schwarzenegger on Future of GOP and It’s Core Values

n an exclusive interview on “This Week with George Stephanopoulos,” Schwarzenegger suggested autoworkers’ pay and benefits need to be cut back. “I think it’s very important to not just put money in. But let’s go and see if they have been fiscally responsible, and if they’re really operating the right way; because right now, all of those — you know, if you pay the auto workers or the benefits and all of those things, [those] are maybe too high,” he said of the proposal backed by Democratic leaders in Congress

“Right now, if you compare to Germany and to Japan and to other countries, they can build cars cheaper. And they don’t have that overhead with the amount of what they pay to the workers, the benefits they provide. Where like, in America, you sell a car, and you have $2,000 of each car just goes to benefits,” Schwarzenegger said.

“So I think that there’s a way of reducing all of that, make them more fiscally responsible. And then, if they have to act together and have renegotiated those deals, then yes, you can go in there and help them out financially.”

Schwarzenegger: States Need Bailout Too

In addition, Schwarzenegger proposed the federal government should give deficit-laden states like California $5 billion a year for the next three years.
