Schwarzenegger fires back at Joe, get off your butt and join us

Arnold Schwarzenegger fired back at our boy, Rubber Stamp Joe Knollenberg today, telling him to 'Get off your butt and join us.' Good for Arnold. It's about time some people in Joe's party expose Joe Knollenberg for his backward thinking. This blog is exposing Joe for who he really is and I hope that more and more voters in Joe's district are coming to know that Joe Knollenberg is not looking out for their best interests. Joe Knollenberg is looking out for the interests of the lobbyists that donate to his campaign. They've already filled his campaign coffers with $262,000. That money isn't coming from $10, $25 and $50 dollar contributions. It's coming from lobbyists that want something from Joe. For example, the pharmaceutical companies that don't want Joe to vote for the ability of Medicaid to be able to negotiate drug prices. Medicaid Part D has been a boon for the big drug companies. Medicaid is paying about 40% more than they should for drugs for seniors. The Veterans Administration get the same drugs that Medicaid does for 40% less.

When will voters in the 9th Congressional District wake up and smell the coffee? I think I know the answer, November 4, 2008.

If you'd like to help raise money to oust Joe Knollenberg, please go to Retire Joe Knollenberg and click on the Host a Retirement Party icon. Invite families and friends to your house and raise some money for the Democratic candidate. Donate directly by clicking on the ActBlue graphic and use you debit or credit card. It's past time for Joe to go.

Even the Governor is on board with CAFE changes.

Her caveat was that the DOT set the standards based on science rather than have Congress do it based on politics. That is certainly reasonable.

I think this is a good example of how leaders act. Both Schwarzenegger and Granholm are acting like leaders.

Joe Knollenberg is not a leader. Not on any issue.
