It's not about the paycheck...

Almost all of the republican ads running in Ohio saying they will create 12 million jobs all follow up wit the line "it's not about the paycheck"

I hear this in every congressional, senatorial and presidential ad for the republican candidate.

Code for, don't expect to get a livable wage?

That's what it sounds like.

1. Tell that to the people looking to earn that paycheck

I bet it's about a paycheck for those voters.

2. you got that right

Remember, they also wanted to lower the minimum wage so "there would be more jobs." (See Michelle Bachman...) So, that means, you could have a few jobs, still make next to nothing, and live in poverty. That's where we're going if you vote Republican these days.

3. They want poor women to work two or more jobs for dignity's sake

But want middle-class and wealthy women to stay home and take care of the children. Of course it's not about the paycheck.

5. 16 tons and what do you get

trust me, it ain't a house in Miami and a brand new lear jet.

What they really want to take us back to is the company store days where no matter how much, long or hard you worked you always owed a little more to the store.
