My name is Arthur Christopher Schaper, a resident of Torrance, CA. I am also a resident of the newly-drawn 33rd Congressional district which includes Santa Monica and the rest of the Santa Monica Bay, the same district in which Congressman Henry Waxman is running against Independent Candidate Bill Bloomfield.
Congressman Henry Waxman has been an LA fixture as long as the Fifth Street Post Office, and both are targeted for closure. While the Post Office has an archaic beauty which can still stir residents and visitors, Congressman Waxman is a worn-out Washington insider long-overdue for decommission.
Regarding his signature legislation, ObamaCare, Waxman insists on referring to the individual mandate as a penalty, even though the Supreme Court has upheld it as a "tax". The law provides no compensation to hospitals for illegal immigrants. Waxman has ignored the law's $700 billion raid of Medicare, nor has he refuted the recent ruling by the IRS, which has excised a large population of working Americans from the federal subsidy.
After the revelation that failed green tech companies had taken down billions in federal loan guarantees, Waxman said, "I'm sorry!" About this nation’s steroid laws, the contents of his own legislation, and even the bankruptcies of Chrysler and GM, Waxman admitted: "I don't know!"
Despite the $16 trillion national debt dooming this country, Waxman declares "We're not broke!”
To the Santa Monica voters who want to stop the spending and get our government working again, vote for Bill Bloomfield for the 33rd Congressional District.
