Where’s the rest of the story from Hall?

Heidi Hall chants the “Koch Brothers” mantra knowing full well their contributions are a drop in the bucket compared to either George Soros or Tom Steyers or Michael Bloomberg at $100 million each. She wants to repeal the “Citizens United” decision that only creates a level playing field.

Were her years working in the EPA spent in the division that seizes private property, confiscates water rights, guts energy sources, closes factories and fences off resources in the West? Is there any private sector experience in her résumé?

Years of opposition research has only found “dirt” on LaMalfa for enrolling in a farm subsidy program. She makes no mention of why those programs were essential and why their value keeps them around today. Why no disparaging remarks on those enrolling in other government programs like welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, disability or free cell phones?

Why does she live in mortal fear of the Tea Party? Which principle of theirs does she object to? Is it liberty, freedom, smaller government, fiscal responsibility or adhering to the Constitution?

When 70 percent of the people feel Democrats are leading us in the wrong direction, aren’t the “do- nothing” conservative “obstructionists” standing up for America?
