Following the passage of Proposition 11 in 2008, California voters signalled to the political class that they were tired of politicians' backroom deals which protected incumbents and rendered Congressional districts uncompetitive, and thus allowing Congressional representatives like Waxman to remain unaccountable.
|Democratic Incumbent Henry Waxman|
Throughout his tenure, Waxman has authorized legislation which would do great harm to this country, increasing government size and power at the expense of the individual citizen, the states, and the country. His efforts to protect the environment, including the ill-conceived Cap and Trade Waxman-Markey legislation would have created an expansive bureaucracy while contributing negligible protection to our environment. Protecting the environment and weaning the United States off of foreign energy are two of Mr. Bloomfield's policy
A staple of the Beverly Hills-Malibu Westside ever since he came to Congress following the GOP Watergate shellacking of 1974, Waxman has faced token opposition for every term in office. For too long, Waxman has taken advantage of sympathetic constituencies throughout his overly extended tenure in Congress.
The purpose of this blog will be to inform all voters in the newly crafted 33rd Congressional district of the uninspiring, and in some cases disturbing and disappointing, acts and activities of Congressman Waxman, a politician who has grown so out of touch with the needs of his constituents as well his responsibilities as their representative in Congress, that he to be retired. Independent Bill Bloomfield representatives a transformative shift in the type of representative that the voters in the 33rd district deserve. An individual who has founded and expanded private enterprise, an advocate who has worked across the aisle with Democrats and Republicans to endorse and enforce reform in public education, crime prevention, and fiscal discipline. A founder of the "No Labels" interest group, Mr. Bloomfield is a more than adequate challenger and replacement for the bombastic and irresponsible Henry Waxman, a partisan who has guarded his dominance in Washington at the expense of the American people, particularly his constituents in every Southern California district that he has "represented" since 1975.
Mr. Waxman has perpetrated the statist status quo of tax, spend, government growth, waste and fraud. He has no business spending one more term in Congress pushing an illiberal agenda which is not in the best interests of the American people or the voters of the 33rd Congressional district.
