Vote for Jim Esch
We know you'll find the title hard to believe, but after reading that poor Jim Esch had earned income in 2007 of only $14,000 we really think he needs a job or at least welfare, food stamps, etc. He does have assets apparently, but for some reason his life seems to be incompatible with work. Gosh, with a degree you'd think he could make a decent living. Why, even Lee Terry earned a living as a lawyer before going to Congress.
Apparently, Esch never learned timeliness from his business since it apparently took him six weeks beyond the filing deadline he claimed he never knew about to complete his federal filing of income and assets. It must have been a horrendously difficult task to collect all those W-2s and 1099s and to complete a list of all those assets.
So wouldn't be nice to have Esch paying taxes rather than perhaps taking advantage of the unearned income credit (we haven't seen his tax return, so he may not be taking advantage of this)? With his ability to meet deadlines and his proven business acumen he will fit in perfectly in Congress. Maybe he'll get a seat on the Ways and Means Committee. Congressman Rangel might help if Jim makes a small donation to Charlie's favorite college.
Vote for Jim Esch! -- If you're stupid and unemployed, or, better yet, write in your name.
