the governor's veto. what do you think, and have you been talking with the governor this weekend? >> yes. i think senator leno is right. we've been meeting with the governor yesterday. going to meet today. we're making progress. look, there's a fine line here between making cuts that continue to harm education and public safety, and at the same time trying to address california's long term deficit. in doing so, without the support of any member of the republican party. that often gets lost when people sort of lump legislature together. the majority party has made deep cuts and will undoubtably make some more. >> do you think you made a mistake by sending that budget to the governor? he wasn't the only one that
didn't like it. the only reason you guys aren't getting paid right now is because the state controller didn't like it either. >> we really had no choice. the governor tried to get a deal with the republicans. it didn't happen. the voters gave us a responsibility to pass a budget vote on time and gave us a majority to do so. we weren't going to be late the first time out. we did the very best we could with the tools we had, including $12.5 million in cuts. >> do you think you deserve to have your paycheck cut right now? >> no i don't, but the people that could be affected by even deeper cuts. no, i disagree with the decision. i think it sets a terrible precedent for the future. imagine if you had a controller of another party than the
majority and the mischief that you go on, just because on a partisan basis, the member didn't like the quality passed by the legislature. it's not a healthy thing for the future, but look, we are not focused on that. we're focused on getting the job done. we're working now closely with the governor. i think he has sort of, whatever he is doing now with the republicans i think he recognizes that there probably is no there there. >> certainly, that was dispointing for people who thought when governor brown took office, here's some experience, he can unite across the aisle. at this point, if you're not getting republican support, i guess the biggest question is, if you guys put together a budget and are you talking with the governor enough so you're on the same page so we don't have this happen again? >> yes, we have to get on the same page. we intend to work with governor
to try to come to a common agreement. it would not be a good thing to have an impasse. the people want this behind them, and so do we, and that's what we're endeavoring to do. >> all right, thanks so much for giving us your time on mornings on 2 this morning. in our election 2012 coverage, the race for the white house is starting to heat up. minnesota congresswoman michelle backman will return to her home in waterloo, iowa to announce her run. the poll shows massachusetts governor mitt romney leading the pack in the battleground
