Talk about government over reach with the twins, Feinstein and Boxer putting their noses where they don’t belong. The lovers of all taxes apparently could not help themselves.
It’s certainly a shame that few among the progressive movement understand the relationship between taxation and job creation, if Feinstein and Boxer had an inkling they would understand why California is 49th in unemployment with 10.7% of her citizens unemployed.
A bigger shame is these two are not that familiar with The Tenth Amendment.
Even Obama has done a better, yet woeful job while maintain a steady 8.3 % unemployment among Americans.
It’s time CA voters desiring to get back to work, kick Feinstein to the curb as her policies have rarely been anything but failed policies.
It’s time to hire Elizabeth Emken, who the arrogant Feinstein refuses to debate for fear that she would have to defend her record.
Elizabeth Emken is far more qualified than the 79-year-old senior senator from CA.
Elizabeth 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.

Top Democratic elected leaders in California are urging proponents of a ballot measure that rivals Gov. Jerry Brown‘s tax-raising Proposition 30 not to directly attack or refer to the governor’s measure in their campaign.
In a letter sent Thursday to Carol Kocivar, the president of the California State PTA, U.S. Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer – along with the top two Democrats in the Legislature – called for a “positive campaign compact” between the rival campaigns.
The PTA is the leading proponent of Proposition 38, which would raise the income tax on a large number of Californians for 13 years and direct most of that money to public schools. Higher income earners would pay the most.
The initiative is bankrolled almost entirely by wealthy civil rights attorney Molly Munger, but the PTA is the public face of the campaign.
The Democrats said the campaign for Prop. 38 is becoming “increasingly negative” and said Munger has engaged in “personal attacks” against Brown and his measure, Prop. 30. See the entire article:
