REP. SANCHEZ RESPONSE TO CBO REPORT ILLUSTRATING RAPIDLY EXPANDING INCOME INEQUALITY
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (CA-47) released the following statement in response to a new report by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) highlighting the rapidly expanding income inequality in the United States. The report found that the income of the top 1 percent of households grew by 275 percent between 1979 and 2007, compared with a 19 percent increase for the average American household.
“The CBO’s report showing top earners doubled their share of our nation’s income is extremely disturbing,” said Sanchez. “The disparity in income between the rich and poor in our country is strikingly deep. It worsens by the day as many in Washington continue to favor corporations and Wall Street over middle class families. We must end the Bush tax breaks for millionaires and pass policies that put the American Dream within reach for all Americans, and not just some.”

During that same time frame, the congresswoman’s personal income grew by more than 300 hundred percent (estimated) and she had become a multi millionaire
That makes her one of the evil 1 percent ‘ors.
But most of the congress members and US senators and members of California’s political office holders also saw their income and wealth blast thu the ceiling during this time period also.
If these 1 percent ‘ors are so bad and evil, why do the voter’s keep voting for them? For theses democrat party members who have ripped off the US taxpayer so royally ?
“why do the voter’s keep voting for them?”….. Hmmmm
In the case of Sanchez, Admin will vote for her because she is Latina no mater how bad and evil she is.
I voted for Cecil Iglesias last time.
“I voted for Cecil Iglesias last time”….. Hmmmmm
Because she is Latina?
That was a bonus Fiala. I voted for her because I liked her independence.
“That was a bonus Fiala”…… Hmmmmm
Because the 47th is a majority Latino district.
“Because the 47th is a majority Latino district”…… Hmmmmm
But her decision effect entire California which is predominantly non-Hispanic.
Besides Latino politicians are lazy socialists like Zorba the Greek. See how all this dark skin southern Europeans are dragging down the north.
Same like Latinos here.
Loretta is a former Republican. She is actually pretty conservative on fiscal matters.
“Because the 47th is a majority Latino district”……
Whatever happened to bussing to achieve radical equality?
There isn’t even bussing in the schools anymore, what happened?
“Loretta is a former Republican”…… Hmmmmm
But you did not voted for Loretta.
Ceci is also a former Republican, but I will be voting for Sanchez next time.
I think you are full of it!.. Admin
You’re right. I am full of Domino’s new Spinach and Feta Cheese Artisan Pizza. Happy Halloween!
