From Worcester (MA) Business Journal:
"U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas, D-Lowell, will host a Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce small business roundtable in Ayer Wednesday, specifically to discuss policies behind job creation and economic growth.
In a press release, Tsongas said she plans to use the information gathered at that meeting to mold new job creation efforts developed by lawmakers.
She also said that she plans to hold similar discussions with other business leaders throughout the Fifth Congressional District in the coming weeks to "make sure that the voices of local businesses are being heard.""
If you read my previous post "Why Niki Tsongas Needs to Go" you would know that she voted for the TARP Bill that was supposed to get credit rolling to small businesses so they could hire new workers or keep existing ones and failed to the tune of a few million jobs. She also voted for the so-called Stimulus Bill that was to spend $787B on "shovel-ready" jobs. Only 20% of the money ever got spent and the only jobs were in government to oversee spending the money.
She also voted for Obamacare with its new fees and taxes that wll further burden small businesses. And she voted for Cap and Trade which is nothing more than a huge energy tax disguised as environmental legislation to solve a problem that has since been exposed as a hoax.
But it's an election year and Scott Brown won the 5th district of Massachusetts handily claiming 27 of 29 towns. So Niki is going to hold some meetings to make it look like she cares as much for jobs as she does for the liberal progressive agenda she's been voting for.
If you fall for it, you deserve what you get.
