Reader beware, Feinstein’s tax policies and votes are only covered from 2006 through 2009. Had her entire career as a “public servant” be covered, the document would have been larger than the 10,000 page plus ObamaCare legislation.
Diane Feinstein clearly “wrong” on tax issues while Elizabeth Emken is clearly “right” Perhaps it’s because Elizabeth Emken has spent so much of her life in the private sector, after receiving her degrees in Economics and Political Science at UCLA that make her capable of understanding the woeful tax policies of the soon to be retired incumbent senator.

Then it could be the result of having little if any knowledge about the real world, job creation, and taxation, because she has worked for the government her entire life.Continually mired in ethical scandals where she has sent taxpayer dollars to her husband’s firms resulting in her leaving the Defense Appropriations Committee that she chaired.
She seems to have little problem with wealth creation as long as she and her husband benefit. Below faithful reader a peak at the woeful votes and tax policies of Senator Diane Feinstein, the “Too Wrong for Too Long” incumbent who will be replaced by Elizabeth Emken. Dianne Feinstein – Taxes
More Equitable Tax Cuts ( Liberal speak for I know what is best for you.)
In May of 2006, Senator Feinstein released a press statement noting her objection to tax cuts that go to the wealthier Americans. How interesting she has been a proponent of class warfare before we heard Obama’s name.
Feinstein Opposes Tax Cut Bill, Urges for More Equitable Tax Relief. That is her way of letting the reader know in the name of “social justice” she knows what’s fair.
Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today opposed a package of tax cuts that would provide billions of dollars in breaks to the wealthiest of Americans, while offering virtually no benefit to middle-class and low-income households. Senator Feinstein expressed concern that while millionaires are reaping huge benefits, education programs, job training assistance, food stamps, and law enforcement programs are facing huge budget cuts.
Perhaps the 78-year-old incumbent senator needs to pull out an economics book and forget her failed lessons taught by John Maynard Keynes. How’s that Obama created deficit and debt working for you senator?
Remember she said this back in 2006. “This conference report reflects misplaced priorities. It exacerbates an already serious deficit. It certainly exacerbates the national debt. And most importantly, it is not equitable,” Senator Feinstein said. “At a time when most American families are struggling to meet the rising cost of living, we should be taking constructive steps to provide targeted tax relief to those who need it most.”
Sorry senator but taking from the rich to give to the poor has never worked can you show us a place it has?
In November of 2010, Senator Feinstein released a press statement noting her support for extending the Bush tax cuts for all but the highest income earners. (There she goes again punishing the job creators and we wonder why California is bankrupt?)
Senator Feinstein Pushes for Extension of Tax Cuts for Middle Class Families. (Clearly she believes she knows something that people educated in this matter don’t.
“Middle-class Americans are really struggling right now, but this economy has been very good to upper-income individuals and the well-to-do. I don’t see the logic in delaying tax cuts for middle class Americans as part of an effort to make sure that the rich get richer. (You are incapable of seeing logic because your thought patterns have been illogical)
I would caution my Republican colleagues against holding middle-class tax cuts hostage for the benefit of the two percent of Americans who have the privilege to be wealthy. If taxes rise on middle class Americans due to these obstruction tactics, the opposition party will be responsible.” ( Earth to Dianne they pay the most taxes.)
