Congressman Darrell Issa To Retire

Vista, CA...This morning, Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Vista) released the following statement: "Two decades ago, when I stepped away from the business I'd built to enter public service, I never could have imagined that a long-shot bid for U.S. Senate would lead to 18 years in the House of Representatives and endless opportunities to make a meaningful impact.





From the first successful recall of a sitting Governor in California history, to establishing new and stronger standards for government accountability, to protecting the Internet from harmful regulation, and enacting the nation's first open data standards, we attempted and achieved much in the service of our nation.

Together, we put an end to abusive Congressional earmarks, strengthened the Violence Against Women Act, empowered better oversight of the executive branch, and cleared the course for better intellectual property protections to stop the piracy of American ingenuity.

Throughout my service, I worked hard and never lost sight of the people our government is supposed to serve. Yet with the support of my family, I have decided that I will not seek re-election in California's 49th District.

I am forever grateful to the people of San Diego, Orange and Riverside counties for their support and affording me the honor of serving them all these years. Most humbling for me -- and for anyone who represents this area -- has been the special privilege of representing the Marines and Sailors of Camp Pendleton and their families. On countless occasions, and in every corner of the world I met them, I was inspired by their bravery and humbled by their sacrifice to keep us all safe from harm.

Representing you has been the privilege of a lifetime.

While my service to California's 49th District will be coming to an end, I will continue advocating on behalf of the causes that are most important to me, advancing public policy where I believe I can make a true and lasting difference, and continuing the fight to make our incredible nation an even better place to call home."

    Issa is not Mexican . Probably Lebanese. He should have been gone decades ago but Orange County conservatives kept electing him. No more. He was facing popular uprising against him.

          He's moving out of the state due to Trump's tax bill. Other smart rich people will do the same.

Issa knows he is not re-electable given his support for Trump-tarded policies, so he is taking his toys and heading home.

This is but one seat of the dozens of house seats that will flip to blue in November.

Prepare yourselves for the tidal wave...it's coming.

Impeach the Cheeto!

    Issa Sponsored 75 Years USPS Medical Charge
    Posted on: 2018-01-10 11:11:39   By: Anonymous
     
    Issa and a few other Republicans placed the 75 year burden on the Post Office hoping to bankrupt it to eliminate it for UPS, FedX DHL OnTrac etc.
    Luckily he failed, to kill off the P.O.
    The P.O. still is paying the $Billions it has to accumulate for this egregious burden.
    This is but another example of the Republicans trying to screw all of us for the corporations.

    When the Blue Wave hits America, it will restore America to the people.

      A "Blue" wave would just return us to depressing victim group politics. Look at the Golden Globes. It looked like a funeral

        No one plays the victim more than Trump. The media is so unfair. The investigation is so unfair. No one understands my crowd was bigger than Obama's. The Park Service took the pictures at the wrong time. It's endless. A GIANT CRYBABY
