September Unemployment By The Numbers

Pelosi: Food Stamps & Unemployment Give Us The “Biggest Bang For The Buck”

If it’s all about food stamps, then Vote for Democrats.

If you are more concerned about JOBS, Vote the Bums out!!!

Obama and the Democrats are driving the car straight to the unemployment line.

Progressive Democrats don’t create jobs, they create entitlements by taking from YOU.
