Arnold: I'll Take Your Stimulus

While several GOP governors, including Louisiana's Bobby Jindal and Mississippi's Haley Barbour, are making noises about not accepting funding from Obama's stimulus plan, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says he'd be happy to have their share if they don't want it. "Everyone has their own way of thinking," he told Politico. "I just hope they give me their funding." The California moderate is grappling with the nation's toughest state budget and reached an agreement earlier this week to close a $41 billion deficit. He was one of a handful of GOP governors who backed Obama's stimulus plan while nearly every GOP lawmaker in Washington voted against it.
