    Economic Boom: Brought to you by another Republican Governor and state legislature keeping taxes low, regulations to a minimum, and investment dollars flowing! The Republican plan, state by state working to make the National Unemployment rate lower!

    Romney/Ryan can extend this type of economic boom with their plan! Save American Small Business and you save American Jobs!

    End the Obama failure of leaving families and children hungry!

    "We've got kids that don't have to work anymore because Dad is making $28 an hour in the oil field, and the wives don't have to get out and work," Vassar said. "We've got women out there driving oil trucks for $28 an hour."

    The key here is to keep the enire family working by only offering low wage jobs in the first place. We just can't have men out there making livable wages and sending thier kids to college, letting thier wives stay home with the babies or god forbid paying women enough so thier husbands can stay home with the baby. This is just a nightmare for business owners.
