A New Appeal -- A Old and Tired Deal

This Guy is Dragging the Past
To Save His Fleeting Future
From Patch.com:

Under the new California redistricting map, I am now running to represent several new areas of Southern California, including the coastal areas of Venice south to the Palos Verdes Peninsula.
 I also retain many wonderful areas of my current district, such as Agoura, Calabasas, Malibu, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and West Los Angeles.
While the geography of the district I am running in has changed, my commitment to fairness and fighting for tangible improvements in people's lives remains unwavering.

Tangible improvements -- like ObamaCare, which has now priced out working families from receivin insurance through the federal subsidy because the one employed member of the family receives coverage from the employer.
I am proud to have made a real difference in the quality of life for all Americans:
Helping pass the Affordable Care Act, which ensures that millions of Americans with pre-existing conditions cannot be denied insurance coverage;

Notice how Waxman does not mention that ObamaCare imposes a huge tax increase on voters, the vast majority of whom opposed in loud and vocal demonstrations along the Washington Mall and throughout the country.
Forcing the big tobacco companies to stop marketing to kids and directing the Food and Drug Administration to regulate tobacco products;

This news is old papers all the way. Who needs this nonsense? What did this country get after Waxman took down the Seven Tobacco CEOs? They lied under oath, they paid millions in civil penalties, then went back to selling their "death sticks"

Strengthening the Clean Air and Safe Drinking Water Acts, laws that have significantly reduced air pollution and given us one of the cleanest water sources in the world;

The Clean Water has been weakened, not by the Bush Administration,  but by the Supreme Court, both times because of vague misconstructions of the legislation which do not explain the difference between tributaries and wetlands.
and Requiring nutritional and safety labeling on foods, and improving the safety of our nation's food supply. I look forward to fighting with you to build a better future.

Food labels are nice, but what about the price of food? Ethanol subsidies are driving food prices up, up, up, yet Waxman still stands by federal loan guarantees to failing green companies.
