Republican candidate for the Senate from the state of California, Tom Del Beccaro recently sat down with local talk TV host Gary Aminoff to discuss the issues that are important with the people of California.
Why is Del Beccaro running for office?
I am running for this important office because I can and will offer California voters a choice – not just between parties or amongst candidates – but a choice of ideas and plans as well.
For most of the last twenty years, California has had one-party rule in the U.S. Senate and the California legislature. The result has been a state that is #1 in poverty, at the bottom in education, and suffering from chronic under-employment, water shortages and budget problems. Not coincidentally, California has the highest combined tax, regulatory and debt burden in the Country.
Our problems are the fault of policy choices. For example, if, despite its desert terrain, Arizona can have enough water and the small state of North Dakota the smallest percentage of unemployed, clearly it is a matter of poor decision making for the rich state of California to have the many problems we do. In order to change our fortunes, we need to change our policies and to do that, we must change our leaders.
We must return to an era of economic growth and away from political division. We must have an election about what we can achieve – not which new title a career politician is chasing.
As your U.S. Senator, I will advocate for bold changes for California and the Nation so that prosperity is not limited to the well connected or to the well to do.
Principal among those policies will be:
· A flat tax for the Nation and California,
· The repeal of California’s high speed rail bond, and
· A comprehensive program to make California a world leader in water technology, infrastructure and distribution.
Del Beccaro cut right to the point when he explained the underlying issue with what ails the USA – “The larger government grows, the more divisions we have.” Exactly right, Mr. Del Beccaro.
