Is Nathan Deal too old? Does he know the middle class is America's strength?

His daughter graduated from a religious high school. Does he even care about public schools?

Smaller classes provide more attention to students; why does he plan on closing schools that are not crowded?

Why is he planning to pare down HOPE scholarships? Education for our future; doctors, lawyers, scientists and teachers should not be restricted to the wealthy.

He is saying he wants smaller government. Why not cut his staff in half?

Statistics show teenage parents often can not find jobs, ending on welfare. Why doesn't the governor help find employment?

Why does Deal want to tax groceries?

When will Deal stop and think about the good of all Georgians?
