Below the reader will find a taste of the wrong-headed votes by Dianne Feinstein over the past 12 years. This is a woman, if she leaned anything at all while studying economics, failed to learn a thing about what is best for growing jobs and the economy. Can there be any serious question why California is $16 Billion in the red?
She believes intuitively that the wealth created by the risk takers in the private sector belongs to the government. She will tax and spend while you are living, and tax you when you die. This dear readers is in the genetic make up of progressives like Di-Fi…
Voters have decided to put their faith in Elizabeth Emken, who served in management, financial analysis, and corporate operations at IBM. As an efficiency and cost cutting expert, Elizabeth utilized activity-based cost analyses to identify administrative savings across IBM U.S., helping streamline operations, eliminate waste, and save the company millions of dollars. Elizabeth graduated from UCLA in 1984 with degrees in Economics and Political Science. Her studies included course work at Cambridge University, where she focused on political and economic issues in China and the Middle East.
It is because of her radical leftist zealotry when it comes to taxing and spending she once again fails to represent America. The Keynesian economic policies she has perpetuated have long since been tossed on the dust bin of history. She would do well to follow her ideas, Dianne Feinstein will not be missed among Americans who believe in the Constitution, The Bill of Rights, while living in freedom and not under tyranny.
