Keith Arnold

A candidate for U.S. Representative, Congressional District 8 in the 2010 Washington Primary Election

Party: Democrat

On this race:

Elected Experience: 2006, 2008 Congressional candidate. Seeking first elected office.

Other Professional Experience: Proudly became a Federal Employee during the Clinton Administration. Resigned during because disgusted by Bush White House. Returned to federal employment during the Obama Adminstration as an accounting technician.

Education: Bachelor of Science, Accountancy, University of Illinois

Community Service: Proposed unpassed Judiciary Act of 1993 to Congress and the President in 1993 to neutralize the U. S. supreme court until that out-of-control court is eliminated by Constitution Article V amendment. Proposed delaying conversion to dtv in 2009 to Congress to honor implied long-term analog tv reception to analog tv buyers and sellers.

Statement: Thanks to voters, Republicanomics (which is bankrupt economics) is out of the White House and mostly out of power, for now.  In the 1980's Republicanomics gave us junk bonds and the collapse of the savings and loan industry. Clinton and the Democrats cleaned up the 1980's Republican mess and got America financially sound again with surpluses in its future. After the 2000 Presidential "Election"  Republicanomics bankrupted our country again and gave us the worst economy since (if not surpassing) the Great Depression. Time is needed for Democrats to clean up another Republican mess.

Reichert's party of "no" has used their Audacity of Nope to block and reverse anything that benefits the middle or lower class.

I am pro-life. (Abortion should be allowed only in cases of rape, incest, or an extreme health risk to the mother. That extreme risk should be limited to life-threatening until medicine can define it better.) Passage of the healthcare bill was a big step in the right direction and should be followed by bigger steps to universal healthcare. Someone who claims to be pro-life but opposes universal healthcare to deny a child (and later adult) a healthy life, is not pro-life.

Remember Jim Vaughn claimed to be a Democrat before the 2008 Primary then supported Reichert the day after the primary. At gathereings before the primary he tried to get me to support Reichert. So be careful of other candidates who claim to be Democrats or even Independents.

The citizens of Washington State fought for our voices by fighting for the Top Two Primary. If our incumbents won't fight for our voices, we must replace them and do so ourselves.

I ask for your vote so I can fight for fairness for America which is Congress's purpose.
