These people think that Eshoo is too far to the right. It just shows how out of touch with realty they are.

"a small group of economic terrorists holding the country hostage."

Advocating that we live within our means makes us terrorists? Bwahahaha. These old biddies have really lost it.

"How would Anna Eshoo go about creating jobs?"

Maybe the campaign office they were protesting in front of has a few clerical openings.

Interesting: The Tea Party who supports a balanced budget is called "a small group of economic terrorists holding the country hostage." It just goes to show these activists are all socialist welfare recipients.

isn't it outrageous that our local politicians like Eshoo, Difi, Boxer, Honda,Lofgren are all in the pockets of big silicon valley corporations and support their agenda 100% by helping them outsource and offshore all local jobs of US citiZens and permanent residents and turn around and act like they care about the jobless by keep extending a unemployment benefits. The democrats, republicans, moderates,conservatives, extreme liberals are all in the pockets of rich lobbyists supported by unions and big corporations. And we the stupid people keep electing the same crooks based on fringe issues like abortion,gay marriage,support for illegal immigrants,etc..

we deserve the worst politicians that we have for our stupidity.

I guess that explains why I never get invited to political fund raisers. I have no money. Only people with lots of money get the invites and shell out big amounts as payment for something they are after in the future.

Heck, why not?! Lets just keep kicking the can down the road and pushing our problems to our kids and future generations. The deficit is not worth talking about. The debt is worrisome but manageable. Future obligations will be our downfall. Economists place the unfunded future obligations somewhere between $50T and $210T. Total private wealth in America is roughly $50T. Total income of all Americans is roughly $8T annually. Anyone that thinks we can borrow our way out of our problems or simply raise taxes for a few years is out of their mind. Borrowing more money to "create" jobs has not worked, will not work. Time to cut spending and restructure future obligations. The things that need to be done will make whichever party is in power VERY unpopular, which means they will not get done. We are on a clear path for failure. I just fear for what 'failure' means.
