It's time to turn UA blue!

In 1928, Republicans pledged “a chicken in every pot.” Ninety-some years later, the GOP has forgotten that many Americans not only don’t have a chicken, they don’t even have a pot to cook it in. 

Romney says he wants to get into the Oval Office so he can strengthen the middle class by reducing the debt and maintaining tax cuts.  But trickle down economics have strengthened only the bank accounts of his millionaire pals, Wall Street traders, and special interest groups. And the rest of the 99% are suffering.
