    Get a younger man in that has experience in industry and employment, somebody that has worked in private industry (recently, not decades ago).

      To right its time for new young blood! Most of the candidates have no idea what faces the public these days, we need people in power that have actually faced the lows of life and can help people who have got stuck with the bill’s that the rich don’t want to pay!!!
