There were so many Republican talking points in the Oct. 12 Forum letter from Anita Meister-Boyd that it made me curious about her background ("Commentary: Jobs bill fails to address unemployment").
She is not only a resident of Newport Coast, but she is also a member of the Newport Harbor Republican Women and is the committee chairwoman for special projects. This explains her comments — particularly her defense of Eric Cantor's comments — her unsupported implication that regulations significantly and negatively impact job growth, and her accusation of demagoguery.
Meister-Boyd stated that the previous writer should speak to the facts. Well, that should apply to her as well.
For example, she references "Congress should pass jobs act" by Samantha O'Dell. This letter was in the Oct. 7 Daily Pilot. It should be read if you missed it. Second, she implied that regulations have had a significantly negative impact on job growth.
