The Republicans need to focus on three things.
1: Jobs - bring them back home even if it means you have to take drastic action with the treasonous American companies who make most of their money here but spend it over there
2: The economy duh. See above.
3: Dump that either anti-minimum wage thing or the low minimum wage thing. Do you have any idea how mean and petty that makes you look? Use some common sense for once. The absolute biggest issue with the lower income working poor is that disgustingly low level minimum wage is set at. Realistically it should be at least 12-15 an hour. Most of the people on food stamps work full time jobs duh.
