The Central Valley Project once created jobs and opportunities.
What’s gone wrong?
In 1992, President George H.W. Bush signed the 1992 CVPIA water law revoking Friant and west-side water contracts and giving Bay Area environmentalists control over Valley water. Bush broke his promise not to sign the CVPIA water law.
Did President Bill Clinton solve the “water crisis” while controlling both houses of Congress? No! In fact, Clinton signed Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s and Valley politician Jim Costa’s Cal-Fed Bay Delta Law – drying up more Valley jobs and farms.
When George W. Bush was president, did he solve the water crisis when controlling both houses of Congress? No!
Did President Obama solve the water crisis when controlling both houses of Congress? No! Obama made things worse by signing Rep. Jim Costa’s 2009 San Joaquin River Restoration Act, causing more Valley jobs and farms to dry up and diverting more Valley water to Costa’s Bay Area political friends.
Tired of politicians like Clinton, the Bushes, Obama and Costa who will say anything to get re-elected?
Then replace Costa and vote Johnny Tacherra for Congress and support a principled and honest presidential candidate, Ted Cruz.
