Arnoldbucks: IOUs for Californians

Schwarzenegger told Californians they’re on the brink of financial “Armageddon,” but won't help fix the budget crisis.

A few weeks ago, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger told Californians they’re on the brink of financial “Armageddon,” but the Governator and other Republicans are actually standing in the way of Democratic efforts to fix the budget crisis. Imagine getting an IOU in the mail instead of a financial aid check or a tax refund! That’s why the Courage Campaign came up with Arnoldbucks–a humorous way to draw some much-needed attention to this serious issue.

Watch what happens when someone from the Courage Campaign tries to use an Arnoldbuck at a local store. Then go download your own Arnoldbucks and get paid!
