    In this Aug 13, 2012 photo, a sick man is taken by ambulance to the public hospital Calixto Garcia in Havana, Cuba. Cuba's system of free medical care, long considered a birthright by its citizens and trumpeted as one of the communist government's great successes, is not immune to cutbacks under Raul Castro's drive for efficiency. The health sector has already endured millions of dollars in budget cuts and tens of thousands of layoffs, and Castro is looking for more ways to save. (AP Photo/Franklin Reyes)

    In this photo taken May 31, 2012 and provided by the Mariposa Gazette, Darci Moore, curator at the California State Mining and Mineral Museum in Mariposa, Calif., begins packing the museum's collection. With a busy Fourth of July week looming, California parks officials announced Thursday that 65 of the 70 state parks once slated to close Sunday due to budget cuts will remain open. The move came after the governor signed a bill allocating new funds for the beleaguered parks system, and the state said it had reached agreements with nonprofits, local governments and others regarding 40 of the parks. The mining museum is scheduled to close this weekend, but officials were working on finding a way to use some of the new funds to keep them open for a few weeks while deals are sought.

    In this June 7, 2012 photo, traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. For the third straight spring, fear about Europe?s debt crisis has rattled U.S. stocks. Investors are increasingly worried that Greece will exit the euro, and Spain may need an international bailout. The next date to watch is June 17, when Greece holds an election. If the far-left party wins, Greece may spurn the program of bailouts and steep budget cuts that has kept it afloat. (AP Photo/Richard Drew)

    A woman uses an ATM cash point machine at a branch of the Bankia bank in Madrid, Wednesday, June 6, 2012. The Spanish economy is in recession for the second time in three years as the damage from a housing bust persists. Foreclosures are rising, Spain's banks are in worse financial shape and the government's deficit is hitting worrisome levels. The impact of the budget cuts has been brutal and unemployment has swelled to nearly 25 percent. Among people under age 25 it is a staggering 52 percent . (AP Photo/Daniel Ochoa de Olza)

    Protesters hold up an effigy of Spain's Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy holding a large pair of scissors during a demonstration against education cuts in Madrid Tuesday May 22, 2012. Teachers and students from every level of Spain's education system went on strike Tuesday to protest wide-ranging government spending cuts. The impact of the budget cuts has been brutal, however, and unemployment has swelled to nearly 25 percent. Among people under age 25 it is a staggering 52 percent. The situation is likely to get worse before it improves, with the economy in its second recession in three years and the full impact of new austerity measures yet to hit the country. Spanish words on effigy read ' Teachers eliminated'. (AP Photo/Paul White)
