    Boxer would export U.S. manufacturing jobs to China and India since they do not levy Greenhouse Gas taxes, (Cap & Trade) “Emission Permits” in the issues table here. President – lies, half-truths, and distortions Obama sites Spain as a model for green jobs. Spain lost 2.2 regular jobs for every green job created.

    More jobs will be lost if Prop 23 is defeated. Yes on Prop 23. http://www.SuspendAB32.org. No on Boxer.

    President Barack Hussein Obama should be impeached for suing Arizona over SB1070 in Federal Court. Article 3 Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution grants the Supreme Court original Jurisdiction over Cases affecting a State.

    Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution states: The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

    To borrow Money on the credit of the United States;

    To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

    To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;

    As such Congress and the feds have the right to control immigration.
    Where is your outrage when Bush sold your rights to illegal search and seizure down the river?
