Mitt Rommey's plan for you...

On Feb. 23, 2012 Mitt spoke before the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) promising how to fight unions and prevailing wage (Davis–Bacon Act by a Republican Congress and a Republican President, Herbert Hoover) and PLA's. Watch the C-SPAN video and please send us your thoughts.

From ABC News:

In Bozeman, Montana, Anders Lewendal is hard at work building a home he hopes will be a blueprint for creating jobs in America.

Lewendal, an economist turned builder, is constructing a house made entirely from American-made products. Everything from the nails, screws and bolts, to the steel, staples and bathtub is made in the United States.

It is up to us, not government, to help create jobs here in America - watch this video and see if you can help next time you have to buy materials.
