“Wow!! Kokie Bros spending millions to advertise lies. What's new? They did the same thing in 2012. It's the people's votes that wins elections, not MONEY!!!!

“Glad you found work. I know what it's like, being 58 myself and losing my job a while back. I was glad to find another job but it wasn't easy. Republicans are so out of touch with the working man and woman, it's unbelievable. I just don't see how any middle class or lower class person could vote against their own best interest.”
“Unemployed Americans need to understand who in congress is blocking jobs, unemployment benefits, and anything designed to help the middle class. REPUBLICANS ARE TO BLAME. Don't vote them into a majority or things will get much worse.”
