Job Creators Reject 28 Years of Boxer’s Failed Leadership, Endorse Carly

August 09, 2010

“For 28 long years, Barbara Boxer has failed to fight for jobs, failed to fight for policies that spur economic growth and failed to fight for American companies. Today we are rejecting Boxer’s nearly three decades of failed leadership and antagonism toward California’s businesses,” said U.S. Chamber of Commerce Senior Vice President and National Political Director Bill Miller.

Boxer’s “Stimulus”: Nothing But An Empty Lot

August 03, 2010

“As the economy has slowed, consumer spending has fallen flat and unemployment sits at record highs, Barbara Boxer has the audacity to continue to look Californians in the eye and claim the stimulus is working. There’s no doubt the $862 billion taxpayer-funded stimulus package has failed to deliver the jobs Barbara Boxer promised it would; today, we’re learning even more about the egregious spending authorized under the plan.”

Carly Hosts Roundtable with Bay Area Businesswomen

July 20, 2010

“California’s unemployment rate is among the worst in the nation, and more than 2 million of our fellow Californians remain out of work – underscoring the abject failure of Barbara Boxer’s big-government policies to create the jobs she promised.

Boxer’s ‘solution’ to our unemployment crisis is to further burden taxpayers to fund more growth in government. This view is dangerous for the long-term health of our economy, and it is both unsustainable and unworkable if our goal is real growth.”

Carly Issues Statement on California Unemployment

July 16, 2010

“The news today that 27,600 Californians lost their jobs and private-sector job growth remained extremely weak last month underscores the fact that big-government policies that depend on temporary, taxpayer-funded government jobs will not provide the foundation of growth we need in order to experience a true economic recovery. Still, Barbara Boxer and her fellow Democrats in Congress continue to press for the budget-busting entitlements, job-killing regulations and higher taxes that drive jobs out of state. As a result, 2.24 million Californians remain unemployed today, and 13 of the top 20 most stressed counties in the nation are right here in California. Only an out-of-touch career politician like Barbara Boxer could witness such a crisis of joblessness and declare victory; it’s clear she’s interested in only one job in California: her own. That’s why I am running to replace her this November.”

Carly Brings Jobs Tour to L.A.

July 16, 2010

“Today we received the disappointing news that 27,600 Californians lost their jobs last month – further proof that temporary government jobs do not provide the foundation of growth we need in order to experience a true economic recovery. Sadly, this is only the latest in a string of disappointing reports we have received about the state of our economy over the last several months.

Despite the fact that Californians are staring 12.3 percent unemployment in the face, Barbara Boxer continually refuses to implement the pragmatic policies we need in order support the small-businesses and entrepreneurs who will help create jobs and grow the economy. That’s why I am running to replace her this November.”

July 02, 2010

“The loss of 125,000 jobs last month and the less-than-robust growth in private-sector hiring together underscore the fact that the economic ‘stimulus’ plan championed by Democrats like Barbara Boxer has not delivered on its fundamental promise: creating jobs.”

June 25, 2010

“Barbara Boxer has had many opportunities to stand up for small businesses and the community banks that support small business growth, but she has failed to do so. Her vote for the bank bailouts was supposed to help get credit flowing again…” – Roger Hart

Carly Hosts Jobs Roundtable in Los Angeles

June 25, 2010

“Job creation and economic growth happen when we unleash the talents and energies of California’s workers, small-business owners, innovators and entrepreneurs – not when we grow government. Barbara Boxer’s big-government policies have not delivered the results we were promised, and I will hold her accountable for her disappointing record.”

June 24, 2010

Carly on California’s Unemployment Rate

June 18, 2010

“Our state has lost more than 244,000 jobs over the last year – more than any other state in the union. We have the third highest unemployment rate in the country and hundreds of thousands of Californians are facing long-term unemployment. Twenty-one of our counties, mostly in rural California, are facing unemployment over 15 percent. These numbers underscore just how badly Californians have been let down by the $862 billion economic ‘stimulus’ plan Barbara Boxer championed and by government policy that has made it more difficult to create jobs in the private sector.”

Carly Brings Statewide Jobs Tour to Sacramento

June 17, 2010

Carly Brings Statewide Jobs Tour to Fresno Area

June 15, 2010

“Here in Fresno County, 75,700 residents are unemployed, and the unemployment rate has increased by 1.2 percentage points since the so-called economic ‘stimulus’ plan passed more than a year ago. It’s clear that the $862 billion plan has stimulated nothing but growth in the size and scope of government.”

Statewide Jobs Tour Begins

June 11, 2010

Carly was joined in San Diego by local business owners and workers to kick off a statewide jobs tour highlighting the devastating effects of the job-killing policies Barbara Boxer has supported. “For 28 long years, Barbara Boxer has championed big-spending, government-growing, regulation-creating policies that have killed jobs and stifled economic growth.”
- Carly Fiorina

In Case You Missed It: Economy, Jobs Must Be Top Issues In Senate Campaign

June 10, 2010

“Now, Boxer seems to be getting a solid Republican challenger after facing humdrum GOP hopefuls in 1998 and 2004. Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, who seems more of a political natural than most corporate big shots turned candidates, vows to push Boxer over Congress’ inability to get the U.S. economy out of its deep doldrums.

This is a proper focus. More than a year after the passage of a $787 billion “economic stimulus” package, job-creation news remains so grim that the Obama White House is reduced to hyping the federal government’s hiring of hundreds of thousands of temporary census workers.”

Barbara Boxer Votes For Federal Government Power Grab

June 10, 2010

“I support Senator Murkowski’s resolution, and I’m disappointed that it failed. Allowing an unaccountable bureaucracy to regulate a large portion of our economy is a surefire way to kill jobs. Barbara Boxer’s opposition to this measure underscores just how out of touch she is with the reality millions of unemployed Californians face every day. Boxer’s priorities do not reflect the priorities of the people she was elected to represent, who are calling for a laser focus on job creation and economic growth.”

Carly on the National Unemployment Rate

June 04, 2010

Carly, in response to the U.S. Department of Labor’s report that the economy only added 41,000 private-sector jobs in May:

“Last month’s jobs numbers are very disappointing, especially since private-sector job growth was anemic; instead, growth came in the form of temporary government jobs. This is exactly what job creation will look like if Barbara Boxer continues to have her way – job growth dominated by taxpayer-financed government workers.”

Carly Issues Statement on Worsening Job Market

June 02, 2010

“Today’s report confirms that the job market has only gotten tougher in the last year – a reality millions of out-of-work Californians have experienced firsthand. Despite Barbara Boxer’s promise to her constituents that the big-government stimulus plan she championed and voted for would keep unemployment below 8 percent, in fact, 11 of the 14 metropolitan areas with unemployment rates greater than 15 percent are right here in California.”
