Never vote for a Republican. They are against you and against your family. The only thing Republicans work for is the corporations that buy them off at your expense. Do not think that your vote doesn't matter, it does. Each vote is important and together we can rid our District and our Nation of the real enemy of ordinary people who need a secure job and healthcare that can't be canceled because an insurance company decides that you are not sufficiently profitable.
The real enemy of working people, students, veterans, and the elderly is the corporate controled Republican Party who will sell you out at the drop of a hat to the highest bidder.
Wally Herger is the typical and has no place representing us because he doesn't.

Frank has to use the fear factor to get people to vote for his lame party. Look at the top 20 contributors to Obama, most of the are BIG CORPORATIONS.

Frank if you truly believe what you posted then you should be found to be mentally unstable. Only a moron would believe what you wrote.

So what part of the fact that California is spending 30 cents on dollar it doesn't have gets by you?

What part of the fact that the Feds are spending 40 cents on the dollar it doesn't have?

In your feeble little mind the democrats haven't done enough for us yet?

What makes you think the government (the taxpayers) are here to support you?

People have to stop voting for a living - they have driven us into bankruptcy.

Given our dire economic situation any public sector employee who decides to strike should be fired and replaced with someone at half the cost - we'll have no problem filling the vacancy.

Remember the Republic Party's mantra of the 1990s? "Greed is good." In the 2010s, it's "greed is great". Republic Party ideological kommissars, such as anti-government guru Grover Norquist, want to destroy public education so they can dumb down the middle class and eventually wipe us out.

The bold statements will hurt many Herger supporters. The truth hurts.

No, that was Rostenkowski, Blago, Rangel et al.
They are democrats Joe.

This letter is just one in an organized series we can expect attacking Herger before election. They never mention who they are for, so their candidate doesn't appear to be a mud thrower. It's just a smear tactic, nothing more.

Tell us Joe, what have the democrats done for education? It seems to me that California schools still suck, even though the liberals control the state. Hmmmmm, interesting.

Speaking of Barbara... Did you know that after 23 years of her political career she has decided to save jobs in California now? We should vote for her.

What part of this, as you call it, "attack letter" do you disagree with? Explain yourself.

Everything in the letter is true about Wally Herger.

Gee, excuse me if I'm wrong, but I believe Awwwhnie is one of your people, i.e., Republic Party. And of course your people have a blocking minority in the Legislature. Oh, but gee, sure, blame the Democrat Party, blame the Easter Bunny too.

"Herger fails to realize, or care at all, that the educational system for our children ".
.
What? Because he knows throwing more money at education does nothing but keep teachers in clover.
.
Why are test scores so bad if teachers are so good?
.
Do not even tell me how "poor" teachers are or how hard they work.

Just out of curiousity, I don't get how Republicans can say "you can't solve a problem by throwing money at it" when it comes to education or any other spending by the government, but then when it comes to business things, you say "it takes money to make money", and "if you want the best you've got to pay" and stuff like that. If a CEO makes an absurdly High Salary, you say that is business they want the best they pay for it, but not for teachers huh?

Don't you think that applies to education and ohter infrastructure as well?

California's welfare budget that soaks up over 90 percent of state tax receipts.

Give it out - they will come.

You didn't address the whole question Buster.

Why does hypocrisy reign in the Republican Party?
