Phil Angelides faces media fixture in Arnold Schwarzenegger and he’s not getting a lot of help from his own party. Angelides talks about taxes, the middle class and whether fellow Democrats have deprived him of some issues.
FROM THIS EPISODE
State Treasurer Phil Angelides defeated Controller Steve Westly to get the Democratic nomination for Governor. Now, some of Westly’s supporters say the Angelides campaign is dragging down the rest of the party’s ticket. Democrats in the legislature have made deals with the Governor, depriving Angelides of some potent issues. At last weekend's party convention, Governor Schwarzenegger told Republicans that his Democratic opponent wants to, "increase the car tax, the sales tax, the property tax, the farm equipment tax, the income tax, and the alcohol tax." Angelides discusses the support of his party, which taxes he really wants to raise and why he'd be a better governor than Arnold Schwarzenegger.
