12/31/11 – Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA) Delivers Weekly GOP Address On Commitments For 2012

May 1st, 2012

In the Weekly Republican Address, Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson lays out the commitments Republicans have for the American people for the new year. Sen. Isakson says, “It’s no secret that the number one issue facing our country is jobs. So the number one goal of the Republicans for 2012 is to continue to make it easier for American small businesses to create jobs.

    Isakson makes a video in an election year, hmmm. Why have I not seen or heard of Isakson during Obama’s reign of marxism?

Reverse socialist doctrines, elminate socialist control like the Dept of Ed, EPA,? etc., ferret out communists and marxists in our government, eliminate “circuit courts” that try to create laws from the Bench, and most of all eliminate the IRS!!!
