SACRAMENTO – Assemblywoman Beth Gaines, R- Rocklin, announced Jan. 29 that the nation’s top advocate for small businesses and job creation, the National Federation of Independent Business has recognized her, for the second consecutive year, with a 100 percent pro-business rating based on her 2012 voting record.

“Receiving high marks on the NFIB scorecard, for the second year, is especially meaningful to me. As a small businesswoman, I have seen first-hand how overregulation and frivolous lawsuits can negatively impact business. This rating highlights my efforts over the past few years to encourage job creation and economic recovery,” Gaines said.

The National Federal of Independent Business is the leading advocate for small businesses in California and across the country. The 2012 NFIB legislative scorecard ranked the voting records of state lawmakers on issues of importance to small businesses in California, such as imposing expensive new mandates and higher costs and taxes that make it more expensive for small businesses to stay in operation and retain jobs here.

In 2012 Gaines worked with her colleagues in both the Assembly and Senate to put California jobs first by proposing several common-sense measures to help lower costs to do business, reform out-of-control ADA lawsuit abuse and put in place incentives to encourage small businesses to come back to California.

Assemblywoman Beth Gaines represents the 6th Assembly District, which includes portions of Placer, El Dorado, and Sacramento counties.

    Once again proving that Beth Gaines is out of touch with middle America. Forsaking the condition of individuals for the almighty dollar. Beth Gaines is nothing more than a puppet of the corporate enterprise. Her unabashed support of legislation that vicitimizes individuals in favor of business is despicable. Just once it would be nice if our representatives would be forced to live like the people they represent as opposed to making laws that affect everyone but themselves.

    Joe your unabashed ignorance and hatred towards small business and your support of trap door attorney's who manipulate the the system for the almighty dollar is disgusting. Just once I'd like to see someone like you actually get a real job. You wouldn't last very long. Parasites usually don't.

    Joe, where would the leftists confiscate the wealth they redistribute if it weren't for free interprise? In what universe could we all be on welfare? Where do you think everything you take for granted comes from? Does the easter bunny pinch it out from below his tail? Where did you learn the nonsense you believe? I am dumbfounded by leftists.

    Joe, who is forcing you to live the way you live? This is America, you wake up everyday with the same exact freedom everyone has. That freedom includes living in a house on the beach or the dumpster of your choosing. What you do with your freedom is not the fault or responsibility of those who have done something with their freedom it is yours. I guess adult diapers aren't just for a physical condition.

    Word of the Day "OBAMAFY" (O bah mi fi)...The act of hiding all relevant information, then having your staff along with your hand-fed lap-dog main stream media lie and manipulate sound bites often enough that your lemming followers except lies as facts......

    I am curious Joe, are you even aware of the fact that you are just a stooge and a lemming of Cloward and Piven or do you somehow believe you came to your beliefs and conclusions based on your own diligent study and observations?
