Thank you Reps. Boehner and Cantor! Without all the Republican sponsored bills coming out of the House, we'd be in an even huger mess than we are, all caused by the Obama administrations attempt to makes us all unemployed and dependent on big government, plus the almost Nazi like gun policy that attempts to take guns and ammunition out of the hands of patriotic citizens, which our Founding Fathers had no so intention of doing, but Democrats can always depend on their 47% and growing to support policies that put people out of work and out of homes. Therefore its obvious that the new construction starts are created by Republicans, the Doers, while the Democrats simply try to line the pockets of people in the big cities and get them to lie about Benghazi simply as a reelection bid, not as an effort to grow the economy.

The multi-story buildings are coming to Pleasanton too, thanks to the newly elected group of 3 YES votes to ridges and development. All backed by our Chamber of Commerce.
