In Home Supportive Services (IHSS) caregiver Teresita Perez de Godoy, right, combs the hair of quadriplegic Francisco Godoy in his Sacramento, CA home January 22, 2010. Francisco needs around-the-clock care from Teresita, his ex-wife who also lives with him. The state pays Teresita for 283 hours per month, at $10.40/hour. Gov. Schwarzenegger has proposed cutting or eliminating the IHSS program which provides care for 450,000 Californians and jobs for 375,000 caregivers. If the program was eliminated, most would need to be institutionalized, likely at far greater taxpayer expense. CREDIT: Max Whittaker for The Wall Street Journal.CABUDGET
