Democratic Party Chairman Marcel Groen's Statement on Carly Fiorina

HARRISBURG, PA— Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chairman Marcel L. Groen released the following statement on advance of Carly Fiorina's speech on business policy in Philadelphia today:

"It's ironic that Carly Fiorina is in Philadelphia touting her business experience when it was that same experience that drove HP into the ground when she was at the helm. While she was at HP, she was named one of America's worst CEOs, the company's stock price plummeted, and she laid off 30,000 workers while shipping jobs overseas. The result? Pennsylvanians were out of work and Carly Fiorina was fired – but took home $40 million upon leaving. While Carly Fiorina was raking in the dough, she was hurting Pennsylvania families. Now, as candidate for president, she wants to give the wealthiest Americans a tax break at the expense of the middle class. She's no leader and we deserve better in Pennsylvania."
