MEG WON DEBATE!
Listen up Dems, Repubs & Independents!!
The facts do not lie.
Jerry Brown has had 40 years of being a career politician
with a legacy of broken promises and failure.
He failed to create jobs as Governor.
He failed to improve schools as Mayor of Oakland.
And he's failed taxpayers at every turn..
Brown has supported HIGHER TAX increases 15 times during his career--against the will of the people.
As Governor, he increased spending by 120% PERCENT.
As Mayor of Oakland, his budget increased by 62% PERCENT.
On jobs, Brown left the Governor’s office in January 1983 at a time of record unemployment: Over 1.3 million Californians
were OUT of work— the unemployment rate was whopping 11% percent.)=
And on schools, Brown failed to deliver on one of his top promises as Mayor of Oakland.
The schools were mired in a $100 million deficit & had were taken over by the state to avoid bankruptcy.
Tragically, the dropout rate in Oakland during Brown’s mayor-ship increased by 50% PERCENT.
Oakland residents today despise Brown!
Brown is in bed with Employee/State/Teachers Unions and their hefty pensions which have bankrupted Californians.
A vote for Jerry is tragic and immoral.
Did final Meg Whitman-Jerry Brown debate change anything?
Tuesday's California gubernatorial debate between Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown was the last before the election, making it crucial for both candidates.

On the factual level,Brown won, says Barbara OConnor, director of the Institute for Study of Politics and Media at California State University, Sacramento. She says Whitman petered out at the end and was engaged but often not directly responsive to Brokaws questions Brokaw fact-checked her twice.

People are forgetting that both candidates r buyng their outcome in the election. Its just that whitman uses her own funds and brown uses other.s funds ..both of them are cut out of a similar two party system mold. They speak the same lingo using slightly different code words

And just think, if she lays off the 40,000 state workers she says she wants to, there will be 40,000 more unemployed in the state! They won't be paying taxes or spending money.

And consider this, she just might off shore those state jobs. You too can renew your license in India!

Well the fact is Whitman lies every time she says that she has run her campaign purely on her own money. Her campaign has more special interest money ($10.7M) than her competitors campaign ($9.5M) has.

Now certainly much of the money she has spent has been her own money, but it is patently false to say it has all been.
