It’s axiomatic for a Democratic to get elected they must sound like they are moderate Republicans as evidenced by the plan Senator Feinstein has put forth below. Pay no heed, it’s the typical hot air coming from her side of the aisle it sounds quit reasonable until they are elected they they become the progressive/socialists they actually are.
Incredibly Senator Dianne Feinstein puts forth the following economic plan on her campaign website. As the ancient Chinese saying goes, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” ~ Lao Tzu, later modified to conclude “but it must be in the right direction”
“The economy continues to struggle in the aftermath of the financial crisis of 2008. Unemployment remains stubbornly high, people are losing their homes to foreclosure and the price of gasoline is putting pressure on the budgets of already cash-strapped families. Additionally, the nation faces a mounting national debt that, if unaddressed, will weigh down future economic growth.”
(Well now, the senior senator from CA is apparently aware problems exist. Will she have the right solution to the problems?)
I’m leaving it in the hands of Dianne Feinstein, she has been around a lot longer than me and she loves her taxes.
The Economy: By Diane Feinstein:
The recent gains in employment over the previous months are simply not good enough.
(Truthfully Senator that have been no recent gains in employment in previous months just juggling the numbers)
The economy must grow at a much more robust pace if the country is to meaningfully reduce unemployment and give working families the income security and confidence that will re-energize the economy.
(Startling enlightenment on your behalf ma’am)
Similarly, better efforts must be made to balance the budget. An aging population and rising health care costs are the chief drivers of our long-term debt issues, facts that must be recognized and addressed.
Thanks Senator Feinstein, the days of lying to the California Taxpayer are over.
Let’s talk about the balanced budget, (Why then did you vote no on the balanced budget amendment put fourth by the Republicans?)
If they are not, the social safety net that has been carefully created and defended over decades will be threatened. (By this you mean the Ponzi Scheme of Social Security with a return on investment of less than one percent? Yep that was so carefully crafted you chose to never bring the topic up. You have been in the U.S. Senate for over 20 years, where is your leadership?)
However, efforts must be weighed to reduce future deficits against the need to invest in future economic growth. Nothing will address the debt burden more effectively than a balanced approach that focuses on protecting federal programs that are critical to education, financial security and domestic job creation.
(Please senator enough with the smoke and mirrors, when you and Harry are gone, Republicans are then in charge with a new Republican President, the Federal programs specifically the Department of Education will be terminated. Erroneously, you believe big government to be the solution while those paying attention understand it is the major problem to the countries ills.)
The global economy is changing, and the country must adapt in order to retain its place as the most vibrant economy in the world.
(Have a quick look at Singapore and Taiwan we have already lost our spot due to your lack of understanding on how taxation kill business.)
The developing world makes significant gains in both economic growth and skilled workers, the United States needs to focus on the comparative strengths that have driven the economy to unprecedented heights.
The hallmark of the United States economy has always been innovation and entrepreneurship. The country must do a better job of utilizing its highly educated population, fostering partnerships between research centers and private business and incentivizing the continued American dominance in developing cutting edge technologies.
(Which the party you belong to and vote with does everything possible to create job-killing bureaucracy’s like the democrats love affair with the EPA to name just one.)
If focus is given to those areas, the United States will continue to dominate the world stage while providing American workers with high-paying and rewarding jobs.
(Seriously Mrs. Feinstein you have a lot of gall taking pages from the Republican play book and acting as though the are platforms you represent.)
- Expanding opportunity and creating jobs (you must mean government ones as your policies have nearly killed the private sector.)
- Balancing the budget and reducing the national deficit and debt (This is likely to happen with progressives and the lack of leadership you have shown for the past twenty years? Get serious madam before somebody in the cheap seats yells “Off with her head.” Unlike lying thieving members of your party, our group is civil and will be taking your head off at the ballot box according the U.S. Constitution, the document you abhor. )
