Patty Murray: Washington’s Senator with the Peroxide Touch

Senator Patty Murray [D-WA] is apparently proud of the job she’s done for to Washington state.  After all, her job-creating ability is, shall we say…unique?

Under Patty Murray’s watch, she’s done a quite job creating jobs. In fact, she’s so talented at creating jobs in other states that the Chambers of Commerce in Illinois and South Carolina should put her on retainer.

And, her backing of the Teamsters in helping start a trade war with Mexico has done such a bang-up job with the cherry, pear and apple growers of Washington state that the farmers must be just mad for Patty.

Canadian filmmakers have also been pleased with Patty Murray for years. Who needs NAFTA when you’ve got Patty Murray in your corner?

Patty Murray also has near-perfect comedic timing. You see, Patty Murray is so pleased with herself that she was able to give America ObamaCare that she bragged about it just a few nights ago.

In Thursday night’s debate between Democratic Sen. Patty Murray and Republican challenger Dino Rossi, the most revealing moment came when a questioner asked Murray “How much of the 2,600-page legislation did you actually read?” – referring to the health care bill Congress passed this year.

Not only did I read it – but I helped write it,” Murray replied confidently.

Nice job, Patty! In fact, the tens of thousands of Boeing voters must be really pleased with you right about now.

Aerospace giant Boeing is joining the list of companies that say the new health care law could have a potential downside for their workers.

In a letter mailed to employees late last week, the company cited the overhaul as part of the reason it is asking some 90,000 nonunion workers to pay significantly more for their health plan next year. A copy of the letter was obtained Monday by The Associated Press.

“The newly enacted health care reform legislation, while intended to expand access to care for millions of uninsured Americans, is also adding cost pressure as requirements of the new law are phased in over the next several years,” wrote Rick Stephens, Boeing’s senior vice president for human resources.

Wow, Senator! At the rate you and the President are going, you should be succeeding at collapsing the economy before the new Congress even gets seated!

Hopefully, you won’t be in it though.  Washington state can’t afford another six years of you, Senator Murray.
