Loretta Sanchez Defends Obama Attack on GOP Budget Plan

Obama finally gets Sanchez backing
Appearing this afternoon on MSNBC, Orange County Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez defended President Barack Obama's morning speech declaring that he will not allow Republicans to continue to force the poor and middle class to pay for massive tax cuts for the rich.

In response to a question by TV host Martin Bashir, Sanchez said she was happy that Obama wants to raise taxes on the richest Americans and plans to look for ways to cut the bloated defense budget without sacrificing national security.

"It's very important for us to get more revenue into the government," said Sanchez, who blamed President George W. Bush for creating massive federal debt by reducing taxes on millionaires. 

Bashir also asked Orange County's lone Democrat in Congress if she was worried about the electoral consequences of advocating tax increases? No, she replied with a smile.

In the 2010 election, Republicans nationwide targeted Sanchez--first elected to Congress 15 years ago--for defeat, but failed when challenger Van Tran found himself trounced on election night.

Sanchez vocally supported Hillary Clinton over Obama in the last presidential election

Want to know the easiest way to eliminate the deficit? Let the Bush tax cuts expire and return taxes to 1990's levels. Those tax rates did not impair economic growth. Instead, we have a tax code that allows the increased accumulation of wealth at the top, which actually does inhibit economic growth. http://www.vanityfair.com/soci...

Just wondering....do you ever print anything else besides hate for republicans/conservatives? Kind of tired of their hate. Besides you print enough of it that we all know how they feel. I would appreciate some views from the other side for a change.
