The easy answers.
1) Minimum wage - I believe that minimum wages are a state issue, and in Virginia we've decided that "X" is the wage that helps us continue to expand while other states contract.
2) Syrian rebels - I don't know the answer to that, because I'm a civilian who hasn't been briefed on the situation in Syria. My focus now is on improving the lives of my fellow citizens of VA-7 by having the federal government intervene less in our lives.
How can this guy not have said these things? WHO IS ADVISING HIM??
