    When you go to the polls, remember the party of "NO". They say no to extending unemployment benefits, they say not to the economic stimulus, they say no to health care reform, they say no to Supreme Court nominations, they say no to a middle class tax cut but an extension of tax breaks to the rich. All they seem no do is halt momentum and progress. They, the Republicans, just don't relate to the working class. Many of them are career politicans and have forgot the middle class or those who may face struggle or difficult times. With the trying times that we face in Michigan, the last thing we want is to be led by Republicans. Vote for Virg Bernero for Governor.
