One budget saving item is to sell state cars, which Ryan Stothard in Australia took note of, hypothetically asking "if California does have a state property auction, should @Schwarzenegger sign everything to boost prices?" Next thing he knows, Schwarzenegger thanks him and makes a video, knife in hand, about it. "Does this mean I can put 'advisor to @Schwarzenegger'on my resume now?" he later joked.
