Filner Sits Out Votes In Congress While He Runs For Mayor

We would all be better off if Filner had missed the votes to loot my Social Security account and replace MY money with HIS un-marketable IOUs. Now that the so-called trust fund has been looted, all of our future SS payments must compete with other general fund potential expenditures..... that is why there is a "problem" with SS.

I wonder what about the words "Trust Fund" Filner chose to not understand.

Having spent my SS money, he has shown we can't trust him with any taxpayer's money.

Vote for DeMaio

Election 2012: Proposition 32

I think the fund raising is 5 to 1 union money over taxpayer money. The last expenditure figures I saw were Unions and allies $45,000,000, versus taxpayers and allies $9,000,000.

Sooooo, as often happens, the unions use the involuntary withholding to disadvantage the taxpayers.

Prop 32 is about leveling the playing field and stopping corporate and union involuntary collections, AND limiting contractor contributions to decision-makers.

Prop 32 a step to reduce political corruption. Yes, there are more steps to take, but doing nothing (voting NO) leaves the bought/rented politicians issue un-addressed.

Who is not nauseated by the charade of politicians pretending to seriously negotiate with people who helped put them in office? Let us start to free our representatives from their indentured status.

Local ‘Super PACs’ Making Major Statement In San Diego Mayor’s Race

The financial race is nearly even. Each side has reported support of about $3,000,000. Although difficult to itemize from the article, it appears that DeMaio is currently (from the article) about 10 or 15 percent ahead.

The article did not account -- probably because there is no reporting -- for the "in kind" support provided by public employee unions to Filner.

So the financial race is nearly even.

Maybe Filner will use some of his campaign funds to restore my social security trust fund that he looted while a Congressman.
