Carly Fiorina earlier this week announced that she will run as a Republican to replace US Senator Barbara Boxer (Democrat-CA). Over the past few years, Fiorina perhaps has become best known locally as the fired CEO of Hewlett Packard. Last year, Fiorina was the economic advisor to John McCain’s failed Presidential run.
Some California voters will be concerned that Fiorina has voted only in five of the last eighteen state elections. Other concerns could be Fiorina’s track record as CEO of Hewlett Packard. Nearly 18,000 employees were fired while Fiorina touted outsourcing high tech jobs to other countries. As Senator, Fiorina would like to strengthen California’s illegal immigrant workers program, despite a 30% unemployment rate of already legal residents in areas of Tulare, Kern and Fresno Counties.
Last week, when Fiorina was asked about the internet, her answer sounded as though she supports the federal government censoring of the internet. Through her diplomatic and somewhat confusing answer, she also brings up the word “taxes” on the internet.
Should your unlimited access to information and entertainment on the internet be censored by the US Government? Should the US Government begin to tax internet usage and/or web hits?
