GOP: Work With the President!

•   Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell wants to raise the eligibility age for Social Security. In order to protect the tax cuts for the rich, Mitch McConnell wants to raise the qualifying age to 70? 75? 80? McConnell is going to be 70, but he doesn't need to worry about relying only on Social Security. McConnell will have his pension from the federal government, but he also has considerable personal wealth. McConnell is just another rich Republicans that don't care about those people nearing retirement and depending on Social Security.

*  Republican leader John Boehner has been a real disappointment. He is unwilling to help the middle class retain tax cuts because he is so busy defending millionaires and billionaires. 

Personally, I'm sick of these games by Republicans as they defend the rich. I'm sick of their talking points and their arrogance.

•  Gov. John Kasich spent $1.5 million to create an ad that talks about the new jobs in Ohio.  However, recent information shows that jobs brought into the state by JobsOhio have an annual salary of $30,000/yr.
