Re "Waxman a valuable presence for area in D.C." (Editorial, Oct. 14):
I was pleased to read that the newspaper is endorsing Henry Waxman for
re-election to Congress. Unfortunately, the endorsement article only made
passing mention of the work he has done to protect our health and environment.
The air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat are all safer because
of his leadership in Congress. Congressman Waxman was one of the primary authors
of the Clean Air Act amendments, saving tens of thousands of American lives
every year by reducing toxic air pollution. Congressman Waxman sponsored the
Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments, keeping dangerous pollutants out of our
drinking water. Congressman Waxman provided leadership to establish the Food
Quality Act, keeping the most dangerous pesticides out of our food. We need to
re-elect Henry Waxman so he can continue working to protect our health and
"We need to re-elect Henry Waxman so he can continue working to protect our
health and environment."
Then why did he block the "Subway to the Sea?"
The traffic congestion along Wilshire is hurting our health and the
Obama-WaxmanCare has increased premiums, decreased access,
and has forced more hospitals to close -- not to mention the huge tax increase on
Waxman refused to amend the Clean Water Act, a vague
statute twice struck down by the SCOTUS.
We need to elect Bill Bloomfield
