    Remember how Obama said that states and local governments are laying off people because the economy is slow? It turns out that revenues are higher than they have been in years.

    Maybe those people who keep saying we don't have a revenue problem might be on to something.

    Republican Governors have righted several states.

    Now we just need Romney and a Republican Congress to unleash the private sector.

    I guarantee you, IF Romney wins, the economy will jump-start itself the VERY NEXT DAY after the election.
