Job Creators: Boxer Bites
Election Day must be getting closer because, recently, Barbara Boxer has started saying what we've all been saying since day one: the election this November is going to be about jobs – or the lack thereof.
"Jobs, [Boxer] Says, Is The Most Important Thing On People's Minds These Days, And What May Ultimately Decide The Race Between Her And Opponent Carly Fiorina. 'The Selection Is About Jobs ... Clearly.'" ("Boxer Campaigns In Fresno, Talks Jobs," www.kmph.com, 7/7/10)We couldn't have said it better ourselves, Senator. The choice voters make on Election Day will be about jobs and about which candidate will fight to create jobs and grow our economy. But you wouldn't have guessed Boxer cares much about job creation or economic growth when you take a look at her 28-year record of failure.
Since going to Washington nearly three decades ago, Barbara Boxer has consistently made it harder – not easier – for companies to do business in the United States. She has voted for more than $1 trillion in higher taxes, including against much-needed tax relief for small businesses. She's also championed onerous regulations on these job creators, making it harder and costlier for them to do business and to hire workers.
Perhaps, then, it's really no surprise Boxer has such a dismal rating from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the largest federation of job creators in the world. Instead, they've announced their support of Carly Fiorina, who has firsthand experience creating jobs, meeting payrolls and managing billion-dollar budgets. As a U.S. senator, Carly will champion policies that help create jobs and grow our economy by cutting taxes, fighting for every job and incentivizing innovation.
