    See! California doesn't need a public option. My fellow citizens are already practicing preventive healthcare.

    Instead of pumping up your arms Arnold you need to figure out how to pump up the California economy.

    I can pump iron, but I can't pump up the economy or enough water onto this burning state.

    There is always hope, if this can survive the fire, maybe I can survive balancing the budget.

    On lookers watch Gov Schwarzenegger showing one suggestion on caring for your health – the newest workout craze, the "California Firefighter workout." It has lots of heat to make you sweat away pounds and beefing up by pumping iron. Of course, the Firefighter Workout Health Care Plan is still being debated.

    Spectators were not pleased when Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger took a side trip to "pump some iron" with the charred dumbbells that caught his eye while touring burned down homes in California.
