On Wednesday, April 11, Congressman Larry Bucshon visited and toured three Clay County businesses, including Brickcraft, Inc., Center Point, PDF, Inc., Brazil, and Morris Manufacturing, Brazil.

"It's very important for me to talk to small businesses and see what their issues are with the federal government," Buchson said. "Issues I've seen today include taxation and over regulation -- these issues are affecting businesses' ability to expand and create jobs, and I take that information to Washington D.C. It helps me understand policy initiatives that I might institute myself, bills that I might bring to Congress to try and help businesses create jobs. I know what my policy issues are, but it's important to hear them directly."

Sounds like a ton of Malarkey to me. All i have seen jobwise coming to this area is poverty level paying jobs and nothing that pays decent, but of course its election year and the politicians always love making promises that is unrealistic.....
