The Chamber of Commerce reminds us of Barbara Boxer’s failure to manage money, both her own and that of the American taxpayer:
In its release announcing the ad, Bill Miller, national political director for the Chamber said:
Barbara Boxer has been recklessly mortgaging America’s future by adding trillions to the deficit and our tax burden. . . . After nearly three decades as a Washington politician, there appears to be no limit to Boxer’s eagerness to tax and spend.
As if her fiscal irresponsibility were not enough, Boxer also voted to cut back water to the Central Valley, shutting down farms and small businesses and helping to drive some Valley unemployment rates as high as 40 percent. . . .
While Boxer has been profligate with Americans’ money, her constituents haven’t seen much benefit from it. Unemployment in the Golden State has soared. It stood at 9.6% when this career politician was elected to the U.S. Senate during a recession, yet climbed to 12.4% as of August 2010 (the most recent month for which numbers are available).
And this 18 full months after she voted for the “stimulus”, with her office saying that, based on White House estimates, this would mean “approximately 400,000 jobs” for the Golden State.
We need someone representing the Golden State who knows a thing or two about fiscal responsibility. Join me in helping Carly Fiorina replace this spendthrift Senator.
