Hey Obama,

Why don't you visit EPA and see what's up there! Oh, wait you and the rest of your Democratic party are just chasing tech dollars. Techies are going to move long time residents out of EPA and influence new development for their kind in EPA.

Chad, You had my attention with the first part of your message. Yes, how true. But you then turned the message into a bad joke. Republicans are going to be more concerned about EPA residents? They're going to be more compassionate? More caring? More ... what have you been smoking?

A minimum wage hike would be great for EPA. Every state and town that implements it has a better economy.

Republicans? No - they want to eliminate the minimum wage.

If you get a paycheck - NEVER vote for a republican. Unless it's for billions, then you can buy a republican.
