Investigate, get facts, make valid determination

I’m amazed when I read that someone doesn't read or watch the news yet has opinion on the jobless.

There would be jobs if Republicans hadn’t blocked the jobs bill for infrastructure. They won't pass it without givebacks to the rich and cuts to seniors.

Believing only what someone tells you and not checking the facts is truly sad. You probably don't know it was the Republicans who shut down the government and caused government employees not to get paid for two weeks. Would you be able to pay your bills if you didn't get paid?

You probably think working for the minimum wage of $7.25 is OK.

In this world today, you must investigate, get the right facts and make a valid determination.

Do you know your right to vote is being limited by the Republicans? I am concerned, you should be.
