Actor Warren Beatty advises Governor Schwarzenegger to raise taxes

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) __ Actor Warren Beatty has some advice for fellow film star and now Governor Schwarzenegger. Raise taxes.

He also says he should terminate his fund-raising and dinners with the brokers of Wall Street and the lobbyists of K Street. Beatty wants the governor to lean on the state´s wealthiest one percent for help.

Beatty made the remarks while receiving a political award yesterday.

The actor has dabbled in politics for years. Beatty played Senator Jay Billington Bulworth in the 1998 movie Bulworth. Schwarzenegger should confront the wealthiest one percent of Californians.

A Schwarzenegger spokesman says California has a spending problem, not a revenue problem.
