Job Creators Say “Enough is Enough” to Barbara Boxer’s Job-Killing Policies

Tuesday, August 10th, 2010

U.S. Chamber of Commerce, California Manufacturers and Technology Association and Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce Endorse Carly Fiorina

BAKERSFIELD, CA - During a press conference at ARRC Technology in Bakersfield, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the California Manufacturers and Technology Association (CMTA) and the California Chamber of Commerce today continued their two-day statewide tour rejecting Barbara Boxer’s 28-year record of failed leadership and urging Californians to instead support Carly Fiorina, a proven, tested leader with a clear plan to create jobs and grow the economy. Fiorina today also earned the endorsement of the Greater Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce (GBCC).

“Carly Fiorina knows firsthand the challenges facing companies across the nation that are struggling in this difficult economy, and she has consistently demonstrated her commitment to advancing policies that support the interests of businesses large and small,” said Bakersfield Chamber of Commerce President and Chief Executive Officer Debra Moreno. “As a U.S. senator, Carly will help produce sustained economic growth and create more jobs, and we are pleased to endorse her candidacy for U.S. Senate.”

The GBCC is a nonprofit association of business people committed to improving the economic climate and quality of life in the greater Bakersfield area. The Chamber represents businesses of all sizes and types and serves its membership of nearly 1,400 members, which together employ some 50,000 employees, by advocating for legislation that supports job creators, providing education opportunities for member companies and promoting the local community and local businesses.

“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. “Carly Fiorina, on the other hand, understands firsthand the challenges companies face every day and will fight for the policies in Washington we need so our companies can compete in the global marketplace and so our economy can recover, grow and flourish. That’s the reason we are endorsing Carly Fiorina for U.S. Senate.”

CMTA President Jack Stewart added, “During her nearly three decades in Washington, Barbara Boxer has made it increasingly difficult for manufacturers to do business in the United States by championing higher and higher taxes and stiffer and stiffer regulations. The path down which Boxer has driven our nation is littered with companies that have suffered as a result of these job-killing policies; that’s the reason we’re today charting a new course by endorsing Carly Fiorina for U.S. Senate. As a U.S. senator, Carly will advance policies that encourage economic growth, job creation and a less intrusive federal government in order to foster a business environment in which manufacturers and all California companies can thrive.”

“Carly Fiorina is the pro-business candidate for U.S. Senate. When jobs and the economy are the primary focus of all Californians, we would be well served to have a U.S. senator who has created private-sector jobs, has had to balance budgets and knows how unnecessary government regulation can stifle investment. Carly is a proven leader who will bring common-sense solutions to an out-of-touch political process in Washington,” continued California Chamber of Commerce President and Chief Executive Officer Allan Zaremberg."

“During Barbara Boxer’s 28 years in Washington, our nation’s job creators have suffered under the weight of sky-high taxes and burdensome regulations that make it harder to keep companies here in the United States and employ our fellow Americans. Today, I am standing with these job creators in rejecting Barbara Boxer’s failed leadership and her decades-long record of pressing for job-killing policies,” said Fiorina. “I come from the real world, and I know creating jobs and stimulating economic growth in the real world requires unleashing the talents and energies of California’s workers, small-business owners, innovators and entrepreneurs. If our economy is going to experience a real recovery, then we must send new leaders to Washington who will put job creation and economic growth first; that begins by defeating Barbara Boxer this November.”

Fiorina’s economic growth plan focuses on the principle that lower taxes, fewer burdensome regulations and more innovation will drive our nation’s recovery and growth. Specifically, she is advocating for policy changes that lower taxes, incentivize innovation and allow our nation to fight for every job. Fiorina also today hosted press conferences at Blue Diamond Growers in Sacramento and Renewable Power Solutions in San Jose. Yesterday, the first day of her two-day tour, Fiorina earned the endorsements of the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce and the Fresno Chamber of Commerce.

Job Creators Reject 28 Years of Barbara Boxer’s Failed Leadership, Endorse Carly Fiorina for U.S. Senate

Monday, August 9th, 2010

LONG BEACH, CA – During a press conference at SnugTop, one of the last manufacturers still in business in the Long Beach area, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the California Manufacturers and Technology Association (CMTA) and the California Chamber of Commerce today joined U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina in rejecting Barbara Boxer’s 28 years of failing to stand up for job creators across the nation, as well as in highlighting Fiorina’s plan to create jobs and grow the economy by lowering taxes, fighting for every job and incentivizing innovation. Today’s stop kicks off a two-day statewide tour during which job creators will call on the people of California to replace Barbara Boxer this November.

“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. “Carly Fiorina, on the other hand, understands firsthand the challenges companies face every day and will fight for the policies in Washington we need so our companies can compete in the global marketplace and so our economy can recover, grow and flourish. That’s the reason we are endorsing Carly Fiorina for U.S. Senate.”

Founded in 1912, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today represents more than 3 million businesses and organizations across the United States in pushing for free enterprise, individual freedom and opportunity through national advertising, grassroots advocacy, citizen engagement and research. The Chamber’s goal is to help elect a pro-business Congress and advance legislation that furthers its policy objectives.

“During her nearly three decades in Washington, Barbara Boxer has made it increasingly difficult for manufacturers to do business in the United States by championing higher and higher taxes and stiffer and stiffer regulations. The path down which Boxer has driven our nation is littered with companies that have suffered as a result of these job-killing policies; that’s the reason we’re today charting a new course by endorsing Carly Fiorina for U.S. Senate,” said CMTA President Jack Stewart. “As a U.S. senator, Carly will advance policies that encourage economic growth, job creation and a less intrusive federal government in order to foster a business environment in which manufacturers and all California companies can thrive.”

CMTA’s mission is to improve and enhance a strong business climate for California’s 30,000 manufacturing, processing and technology-based companies. Since 1918, CMTA has worked with state government to develop balanced laws, effective regulations and sound public policies to stimulate economic growth and create new jobs while safeguarding the state’s environmental resources. CMTA represents businesses from the entire manufacturing community – an economic sector that generates more than $250 billion every year and employs more than 1.2 million Californians.

“Carly Fiorina is the pro-business candidate for U.S. Senate. When jobs and the economy are the primary focus of all Californians, we would be well served to have a U.S. senator who has created private-sector jobs, has had to balance budgets and knows how unnecessary government regulation can stifle investment,” said California Chamber of Commerce President and Chief Executive Officer Allan Zaremberg. “Carly is a proven leader who will bring common-sense solutions to an out-of-touch political process in Washington.”

Tracing its roots back to the California State Board of Trade’s establishment in 1890, CalChamber works to make California a better place to do business by giving private-sector employers a voice in state politics and by providing a full range of California-specific products and services. The organization now serves as an advocate for some 15,000 job creators and works to enhance the California economy by making it a better place to live, work and do business.

“I am honored to have the support of these job creators and their members behind my campaign, and I look forward to fighting with them to implement policies that spur job creation and economic growth in California and around the United States,” said Fiorina. “Under the leadership of career politicians like Barbara Boxer, we have made it harder – not easier – for companies to grow, succeed and hire Americans. That’s a record of failure we reject today. If we are serious about growing our economy and creating jobs, then we must send new leadership to the U.S. Senate, and that begins by replacing Barbara Boxer this November.”

Fiorina’s economic growth plan focuses on unleashing the talents and energies of California’s workers, small-business owners, innovators and entrepreneurs by getting government out of the way and reducing uncertainty that is inevitably caused by intrusive and over-reaching government regulatory policies. Fiorina today also earned the endorsement of the Long Beach Chamber of Commerce and the Fresno Chamber of Commerce.

Carly Fiorina Joins Farmers and Ranchers in Urging Barbara Boxer to Stand Against Largest Tax Hike in American History

Friday, August 6th, 2010

Fiorina Also Earns Endorsement of California Grape and Tree Fruit League President Barry Bedwell

FRESNO, CA – U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina was today joined by Fresno-area farmers and ranchers at Tri-Boro Fruit Company for a press conference to urge Senator Barbara Boxer to stand with California’s agriculture industry in opposing the largest tax increase in United States history, which includes a 55 percent death tax that will particularly hurt California’s farmers and ranchers.

“In the midst of one of the worst economic downturns in a generation, California families simply cannot afford to pay an additional $1,600 in higher taxes next year. And California family farms and ranches – who have already suffered a one-two punch from a bad economy and restricted water flow to the Central Valley – can’t afford to be saddled with a 55 percent death tax,” said Fiorina. “Today, I join these hard-working farmers and ranchers in urging Barbara Boxer to stand against the largest tax hike in American history. I hope – but I do not expect – that she will, for once, support policies in Washington that will make it easier for these family-owned businesses and entrepreneurs to grow, succeed and create jobs.”

The 2001 and 2003 tax relief measures are currently scheduled to expire at the end of this year. If Congress fails to extend them in the next five months, this would represent the largest tax increase in American history, $3.8 trillion, and would cost the average middle-income California family more than $1,600 in higher taxes next year. Fiorina has consistently called for both the extension of these important relief measures and for abolishing the death tax; Barbara Boxer, however, has voted against death tax relief at least 18 times and has voted for more than $1 trillion in higher taxes during her nearly three decades in Washington.

“Carly Fiorina understands the importance of fighting for and standing with our state’s agriculture industry, and she will be a vocal advocate for us in the U.S. Senate,” said California Grape and Tree Fruit League President Barry Bedwell. “Among the most important agriculture issues Carly will champion is the end of the 55 percent death tax, which hurts successful farmers and ranchers who want to pass down their land and livestock to future generations – essentially taxing the American dream. I’m proud to stand with Carly in calling for an end to this devastating tax and to support her campaign for Senate.”

Also speaking at the press conference were Agriculture Leaders for Carly co-chair and California Cattlemen’s Association President-Elect Kevin Kester, who discussed his family’s being forced to sell off several pieces of their ranch after his grandfather passed away. As a result of their death tax payments, the family witnessed a significant decrease in the ranch’s ability to hire, reinvest in the business and purchase much-needed goods and materials. Similarly, J&L Vineyards Owner and Operator Debbie Jacobson may have to sell a large portion of family property due to taxes assessed on their estate after the recent death of her parents.

Carly Fiorina Hosts Roundtable with Asian American Business Leaders in Sunnyvale

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

SUNNYVALE, CA – During a meeting with Asian American business leaders in Sunnyvale, U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today discussed the disastrous results of Barbara Boxer’s 28-year career in Washington and the negative impact higher taxes and thicker regulations are having on small-business owners across California. Fiorina also presented her own proposals to create jobs, grow the economy and rein in federal spending.

“California’s small businesses are the embodiment of the American dream, and the policies implemented by our leaders in Washington should always foster and cultivate the ideals of freedom, entrepreneurship and innovation on which our nation was built,” said Fiorina. “However, the course Barbara Boxer and her fellow Democrats in Congress have charted is leading our nation toward economic stagnation – not economic growth. From her votes for more than $1 trillion in higher taxes to her support for onerous new mandates on California’s enterprises, Barbara Boxer is clearly no friend of small businesses. That’s why she must be replaced this November.”

Since declaring her intention to run for U.S. Senate, Fiorina has consistently focused on job creation and economic growth. In particular, the economic growth plan she unveiled in April calls for extending the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts, eliminating the estate tax, eliminating capital gains taxes on small-business investments, instituting a two-year payroll tax holiday for small businesses and start-up businesses that hire unemployed workers, and creating “Jobs for Americans Zones” that provide businesses in targeted geographic areas a 10-year tax holiday for facilities repatriated from overseas and a five-year tax holiday for start-ups and expansions.

“California is home to more than half a million Asian-owned businesses, and these companies play an important role in our economy,” added McDonald’s owner and community leader C.C. Yin, who is also an honorary chair of Asian Americans for Carly. “Carly understands how important it is to support these companies by cutting taxes and reducing the thicket of regulation that inhibits their growth and success, and that’s why I am standing behind her campaign for U.S. Senate today.”

Also participating in the event were Asian Americans for Carly statewide chair Ann Hoang Fogliani and 888 Auto Corporation Owner Maria Chen. Last month, Fiorina launched Asian Americans for Carly and announced the support of such prominent Asian Americans as Board of Equalization Member Michelle Steel and former Assemblyman Alan Nakanishi.

Carly Fiorina Opposes Nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court of the United States

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

SACRAMENTO, CA – Carly Fiorina today announced that she has decided not to support Elena Kagan’s nomination to the Supreme Court of the United States.

“I believe the Senate’s duty to ‘advise and consent’ requires a thorough review of judicial nominees and their records. I closely followed the Senate’s confirmation hearings and have taken time to carefully consider how I would vote on Elena Kagan’s nomination were I a member of the Senate today.

“The confirmation process revealed that she has many admirable qualities – an ability to solve problems, an energetic mind and an enthusiasm for her colleagues and her work – all of which qualify her to serve as Solicitor General, the Dean of a Law School or even as a legislator. However, the process also underscored her lack of experience as a jurist, which in my mind is a key element in determining whether or not a nominee is qualified to serve as a member of the Supreme Court.

“As a member of the Court, her duties would be to faithfully interpret the Constitution and, in many cases, to exercise judicial restraint. Unfortunately, her complete lack of judicial experience coupled with a public record that sheds minimal light on how she would execute these duties gives me great pause about her qualifications to serve on the highest court in the land. It is for that reason that I have decided not to support her nomination to this position.”

Statewide Volunteer Chair: Join Us Today!

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

Guest post by Chuck McDougald, Statewide Volunteer Chair, Carly for California

I’m excited to join Carly today in announcing the county and local chairs of the Carly for California grassroots leadership team. We have an impressive team of individuals who are dedicated to spreading Carly’s message and building support for her campaign. Up and down the state, our grassroots team is mobilizing our efforts to get Carly elected in November.

Carly believes that our Founding Fathers envisioned our nation to be lead by a citizen government—that’s what they meant when they said of, for and by the people. Carly’s real-world experience and understanding of what it takes to create a job stands in stark contrast with Boxer’s decades-long record of increasing spending and implementing onerous regulations that make it harder for small businesses to survive. It speaks volumes that Carly, who has never run for office, has a more vibrant and energized grassroots team than her opponent who has spent more time in office than most Californians have been alive.

Joining me in our grassroots leadership team are Statewide Volunteer Coordinator Evie Coss, Statewide Volunteer Senior Advisor Richard Sherman, Statewide Volunteer Senior Advisor Jalene Forbis, Statewide Volunteer Senior Advisor Joel Strom, Statewide Volunteer Senior Advisor Cathie Bennett Warner, Statewide Volunteer Senior Advisor Luis Buhler and Statewide Volunteer Senior Advisor Michael Schwab. Together with our dedicated county and local chairs, we are committed to spreading Carly’s message of job creation, economic growth and fiscal responsibility to all of California’s voters.

With grassroots volunteer chairs representing every county in the state, now is the perfect time for you to sign up and join our team! Click here to sign up as a volunteer and take your government back, make it listen and make it work.

These dedicated Californians will help build support for Fiorina’s campaign in their respective geographic areas and will help get out the vote for her on Election Day.

PPIC Poll Confirms Boxer’s Vulnerability, Declining Support

Wednesday, July 28th, 2010

SACRAMENTO, CA – Carly for California Deputy Campaign Manager Julie Soderlund today issued the following statement regarding the Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) Statewide Survey showing that Barbara Boxer’s support and lead have declined significantly since PPIC’s last survey in May:

“This poll is good news, and it confirms what an increasing number of election watchers have recently noted: despite being known by nearly all Californians, despite having been a politician for more than three decades and despite her millions of dollars in stockpiled campaign cash, support for Barbara Boxer is declining, the race is tightening, and Carly Fiorina has a clear opportunity to defeat her this November.

“The movement in this race from being a clear win for Boxer to a ‘toss-up’ is a testament both to Boxer’s failure as a senator and to Carly’s strength as a challenger. The financial commitments made to Carly’s campaign by several organizations in the past week only further underscore the growing recognition that this race is both competitive and winnable, even in deep blue California. And as voters learn more about Boxer’s support for more than $1 trillion in tax increases, job-killing legislation paid for at taxpayers’ expense and a massive expansion in government, we expect Boxer’s support to drop even further.”

This morning, the Washington Post moved California’s Senate race from the “lean Democratic” category to the “toss-up” category. The Rothenberg Political Report and the Cook Political Report previously moved the race to “toss-up.” Earlier this week, the National Republican Senatorial Committee announced it has reserved $1.75 million in television time in the final weeks of the general election campaign.

Southern Chair Tom Garcia on Carly’s Veterans Coalition

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Tom Garcia, Retired Army Specialist, Statewide Southern District Chair, Veterans for Carly

I am proud and excited to be the Statewide Southern District Chair for Veterans for Carly Fiorina. I joined Carly today in San Diego to help her announce the launch of the veterans coalition and to talk about issues of importance to veterans, including jobs for recently returned solders, health care and supporting our troops.

I believe California needs a senator who respects our men and women in uniform. As a veteran, I took great offense with Barbara Boxer’s careless comments equating being a senator with serving in the military. Unfortunately, this was just the most recent comment in Boxer’s long history of disrespecting our men and women in uniform. Boxer has a deplorable record when it comes to one of the most critical military issues: troop funding. In 2001, she voted against $847 million in funding for much-needed mission-critical and force-protection maintenance. And in 2003, Boxer voted with only 12 other senators to try and defeat an $87 billion supplemental for supporting troops in the field and their families at home.

She was also one of only 25 senators who voted against condemning a MoveOn.org ad that attacked General David Petraeus. The ad accused the general of “cooking the books” and called him “General Betray Us.” And let’s not forget when she dressed down a brigadier general on national television, asking that he call her “senator” instead of “ma’am”.

It’s time we had a senator who gives our troops the respect they deserve. That is why I am working to elect Carly Fiorina in November. Carly also has the real-world experience necessary to get our economy running again. She knows what it takes to create a job—something Boxer, with her 34 years as a career politician, has no idea how to do. Jobs are important to all Americans, but especially to our veterans returning from active duty. We need someone in office who understands that we need to help small-business owners and entrepreneurs in order to create jobs and jump start the economy, not spend billions of taxpayer dollars on a failed stimulus plan.

It’s time for Barbara Boxer to go. And I know that, with the help of the veterans’ community in California, we can work together to defeat Boxer and elect Carly Fiorina as our next senator.

Carly Fiorina Issues Statement on $1.47 Trillion Federal Deficit

Friday, July 23rd, 2010

SACRAMENTO, CA – U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today issued the following statement in response to the Office of Management and Budget report released this afternoon projecting that the federal deficit will hit a record $1.47 trillion this year:

“Today’s report underscores just how deep a pit Barbara Boxer and Washington have dug for the people of this country. Under their watch, unemployment continues to soar, and we now know our federal deficit will reach a record $1.47 trillion this year. Still, Boxer remains intent on spending even more of taxpayers’ money and continues to talk about even more earmarks and even more government growth.

“It is painfully clear that Barbara Boxer and her colleagues in Washington have spent far too much of our money – and have no intention of changing direction anytime soon. Americans are already on the hook for billions of dollars in bailouts, and we simply cannot afford another six years of Boxer’s free-spending ways. Barbara Boxer obviously has no intention of making the tough choices necessary to set our nation on a path toward fiscal sanity, which is why we must replace her this November with a senator who will.”
