Treasurer Phil Angelides and Senate President John Burton said at separate news conferences the political novice would be hard-pressed to make good on campaign promises such as protecting education, fully funding public safety and resolving California's long-term budget shortfalls without new taxes.

Schwarzenegger, in his first press conference since being elected governor, repeated his campaign pledge not to raise taxes and pledged furthur to repeal an unpopular car tax.
