Herger is not a smart individual. I have spoken with him more than once and each time I come away with a "how the heck did he get voted in" feeling. It is no wonder he will not speak or debate publicly in front of a mostly educated crowd.

Herger is skipping the debate just like he's skipping representing the voters. Its because he thinks his seat is safe and that we are too dumb to notice that he doesn't even care about us enough to bother showing up. The last time Herger bothered speaking to a Chico audience it was to try to sell us on Bush's privatization scheme for Social Security.
Now they want more of the same.
Republicans want to raise the retirement age.
Cut benefits for those still working.
Privatize Medicare.
Privatize the VA.
Eliminate Unemployment insurance.
Force women to bear rapist's babies.
Start another war with Iran.

Do the right thing and dump this arrogant parasite.
Vote for the Democrat!

Two words: Speaker Boehner.

Yes we need a Speaker Boehner. In 1997, he gave out checks from the tobacco companies to his republican members on the House floor because they supported a tobacco bill.

He is a empty suit just like Wally....

Can we do better than Wally?

Please vote this guy out! He's a career politician, having been in office for 24 years! Let's get some fresh blood and ideas in place of him. I hope we don't wait until he's removed from office in a coffin. I'm voting for Reed, I suggest we all do the same.

He had a more pressing engagement: he had to stay home and wait for the cable guy.

"How the heck...." exactly the question!!!

My wife met him on numerous occasions at CSU functions, and this was her comment also.

However, since these functions were associated with the government/political training group at the school, she had the opportunity to discuss this with some professors of political science. The historically correct answer: His parents (rich ag family) used their influence and fortune to get him the job, and he's been coasting ever since. Could it have been any other way?

This dunderhead couldn't think his way out of a paper bag. Now he just hides as much as possible (when he isn't bending over for his republican "betters" that is).

Herger might still be stinging from the fact that one of his daughters turned Christian, and now her Mormon family has ostracized her.

I attended Wally's campaign "contributors" party in Colusa a couple years ago. He is one of the most arrogant and useless individuals I have seen. Rather than talking about his platform and where he stands on issues, all he did was crack mean jokes about Obama. Although I'm not an Obama supporter, it seemed pretty mean-spirited and not helpful. How does this guy keep getting sent back to DC? Oh, that's right...rice farmers and wealthy rednecks. The same (subsidized) rice farmers who burn thier fields after harvest. While we tax payers are penalized for heating our homes with wood. Nice...

Why why why? Why is this the person that "represents" us? He does not communicate with us, he does not advocate for north state needs, he does not initiate any govt action. He is a hack at best.

What a total coward. Typical Republican. This is going on all over the country. These guys got the public outraged last summer now they are too cowardly to show up and debate opponents. It doesn't matter anyway because they know that Republican voters are so ignorant, they will vote "R" no matter who is on the ballot.

Jobs

We have in the District a persistent unemployment rate that far exceeds the national average and I believe there is a direct correlation between the high unemployment rate and the fact that the District does not get back its fair share of our tax dollars. If for instant Shasta and Butte Counties received just average Federal spending for rural counties, each of these Counties would receive more than an additional $1 billion dollars per year. That much more money flowing through these Counties should create enough new jobs to cut the unemployment rate there in half.

So apparently Reed thinks the problem with jobs in the north state is that the government doesn't spend enough money here?

Yeah, just what we need more governent subsidies.

As an attorney with a Masters Degree in Taxation and who regularly advises clients of tax consequences, I prefer reform of excessive executive pay, which I believe to be one of the main causes of the recent economic meltdown.

http://www.reednow.com/issues.html

Executive pay was one of the main causes of the economic meltdown?

This guy is as stupid as the "votes for a living" posters above.

Apparently he's never heard of Barney Frank, Fannie Mae, Bill Clinton signing the Graham, Leach, Biley Act, and the Community Reinvestment Act of 1995 - and the liberal idea of -

"its not fair that the only people who can afford homes are the people who can afford homes".

Maybe when Reed gets to Washington he can think up a brand new idea like "home loans for people who can't afford to pay them back".

As the article says there are debates already scheduled. This is just a hit piece.

Grow up.
