"Brad Goehring is a GOP candidate for Congress in the CD 11. He also supplies agriculture with workers. "Still, he estimates that 40 percent of workers whom he hires may be illegal -- to judge by letters sent irregularly from the Social Security Administration long after harvest to alert employers that their employees' don't match the worker."
He hires 40% illegal aliens and gets away with it when notified by Social Security about the illegals AFTER the work is completed. This allows them to come back with new names and different stolen or phony ID's.
Not only does he game the system to hire criminals, he blames others for it. "Goehring notes that his business turns over workers far more quickly than it used to. He faults welfare -- for paying people not to work -- as well as the fact that growers now have to compete for immigrant labor with construction, trucking and landscaping contractors." The man has no personal responsibility.
Then, he believes the government MUST provide HIM with cheap labor. "Hajek and Goehring tell me they want to follow the law, but they also need laws that ensure them access to cheap immigrant labor. Americans simply won't reliably do the work, they say."
Of course Californians pay $11 billion in taxes to pay for his "cheap labor". That should be added to the cost of the peaches.
The good news is that Brad Goehring probably won't even make it to the starting line of the race to replace the anti-farmer Democrat Jerry McNerney. Brad apparently has little in the way of ethics, believes the rest of us should subsidize his business and will not take responsibility for his actions--sounds to me like a Democrat. He is shoving in our face that he hires illegal aliens--must be proud of helping them break our laws."
Never mind running for Congress, how did Goehring avoid being offered an Obama Cabinet Post?
On May 12, 2009, The National Republican Senatorial Committee betrayed its mission, betrayed Republican voters, and betrayed the Reagan legacy.
The NRSC sided with an establishment candidate, Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, in a Senate primary against young conservative leader, former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio.
Republicans across the country were outraged by this action, which is only the latest betrayal of grassroots conservatives by the out-of-touch GOP elite in Washington.
The word went forth among conservative activists: Do not give money to the NRSC. The current chairman, Sen. John Cornyn, must resign. His replacement must pledge to keep the committee neutral in contested primaries. Let Republican voters -- not party elites -- choose Republican candidates.
This is where the conservative grassroots rebellion begins. When the NRSC asks you for money, tell 'em:
NOT ONE RED CENT!
UPDATE: On June 27, eight Republican members of the House voted "yes" for Nancy Pelosi's top legislative priority, the Waxman-Markey energy tax bill. Until these eight RINOs are terminated -- by retirement or by defeat in the GOP primaries -- then the National Republican Congressional Committee deserves the same answer:
