At the Dianne Feinstein Town Hall in West Adams last week, her staff provided a whole lot of paperwork showing her accomplishments in the United States Senate.
Now in 2017, does Senator Feinstein have anything worth standing on? Has she accomplished anything notable which has expanded the rights and freedoms of United States citizens while limiting or properly directing the role of the government?
Here is all the paperwork she had to share with the public:
The first item, with a nice pink cover, features the Breast Cancer Research stamp: Yes, that’s all very nice, but how does that help the lives of ordinary Americans?
THE LAKE TAHOE RESTORATION ACT:
She has also pushed through legislation turning California land into national preserves, which basically means that the federal government takes the property away from the rest of us.
Here is another land grab which Feinstein pushed through: CALIFORNIA DESERT CONSERVATION AND RECREATION, This is petty micromanaging, and does not require much effort from a US Senator to get passed.
Other Accomplishments, again, directly from her office:
FEINSTEIN OPPOSES DEVOS NOMINATION
FEINSTEIN: MILLIONS WILL LOSE HEALTHCARE UNDER GOP PLAN
FEINSTEIN: COMEY TESTIMONY REINFORCES NEED FOR THOROUGH INVESTIGATION
FOOD SAFETY, BOOSTING FUEL ECONOMIC STANDARDS FOR VEHICLES
CLIMATE CHANGE: A TIME TO ACT
US Senator Dianne Feinstein has very little to trot out to demonstrate accomplishments in Washington DC. Why would she? It’s not as though she really had to work for the constituents of California, anyway. She defeated an incumbent, appointed Republican in 1992, then cruised to re-election in subsequent elections since then. She has never worried about a challenge from her Left, and the opposition on the right has been negligible at best.
A challenge from her left could become a real possibility in 2018, though, and judging by the ferocious temperament of progressive left–which has all but taken over the already uber-liberal California Democratic Party, Feinstein is worried about her chances.
If she wants to run on a record of accomplishment, however, she is already behind.
