DelBene "untested in the public arena" (Seattle Times)
Everett, WA - November 3, 2012 - With our nation facing its greatest economic crisis since the 1930's and with the jobless rate in our area climbing to 8%, now is not the time to elect an inexperienced amateur like Suzan DelBene to represent us in the U.S. Congress.
DelBene, the Democratic candidate for Congress in the 1st district, has never even voted to approve or reject a bill, let alone negotiated the terms of complex legislation with legislators from both sides of the aisle.
Delbene has consistently demonstrated throughout the campaign her ignorance of poorly drafted legislation and the unintended consequences of ideas not thoroughly vetted. For example, the Buffet Rule which she has campaigned on will destroy thousands of small businesses through high taxes - concerns which DelBene flippantly disregards as collateral damage.
