Comment by Jim Campbell
Eventually we knew the truth would catch up with you Dianne. Your failed policies have continued to crush California’s economy, moving companies out-of-state and in many cases overseas.
It must go without saying that if one is incapable of understanding economics, then they have no place in the Congress of the United States. That’s been the problem with you and the progressives since the party began with Woodrow Wilson.
Yet you have the temerity to blame outsourcing on Republicans?
Please get back to us when you have taken a basic economics course, one that shows that increasing taxes has a chilling effect on businesses large and small. (Please remember to click on sources they provide an excellent summary.)
Certainly you will never own up to it, but your tax and spend policies are the cause of California’s economic woes.
Perhaps you would do well to pay attention to Jim’s Law, clearly depicted below.
Doubt this? Then please name a state or country that has ever taxed itself into prosperity. Not to worry Diane that was a trick question, none have and none ever will.
