Gallegly's 'No' Vote

The people of Ventura County should know that the economic stimulus package that was defeated because of a Republican filibuster in the U.S. Senate would have brought a billion dollars to California. A billion dollars to create jobs and give our economy a kick start toward a recovery.

It should also be noted that despite the fact that Ventura County is suffering unprecedented rates of unemployment, our own congressman, Elton Gallegly, voted against the stimulus package.

Gallegly voted in favor of the Gulf War, which cost taxpayers something like a billion dollars a day, but voted against a $16.3-billion stimulus package which would bring jobs to his own state.
