Kasich will visit St. Helen’s Roman Catholic Church for a MSNBC Town Hall on March 30, according to Councilman Eric Ulrich. The town hall will start at 12:30 p.m. at 157-10 83rd St. Queens residents who would like to RSVP can email msnbctownhall@gmail.com with their phone number and questions for Kasich. Those who send in questions should be willing to ask them on camera.

His appearance comes a few weeks before the New York primary on April 19.

Unemployment is measured by people who are seeking or receive unemployment insurance. If you believe our unemployment rate is only 5% you are not researching information. You are not counting all the people who don't have jobs, but are not seeking unemployment insurance. You are not counting all the prisoners who are being housed for non-violent crimes. You are not counting the MILLIONs, tens of millions of people who live at home, are indigenous, are low income, taking care of a disabled spouse/parent/child. You are not counting someone who is married to someone who is employed, and are looking but not finding work. Our actual unemployment rate is near 25%. If manufacturing jobs come back as Trump will work toward, and many more Americans will work again, taxes will go down. Our National Debt will reduce, social security will become solid, and we will be able to afford (a smart plan of) national health care. But we need to work. Balancing our trade so we bring a manufacturing base back to our country is the best answer to employing the under educated, and those educated in vocational studies. It is so obvious I am baffled by people who don't understand that, and I have been saying it since the 80's. THAT is why average Americans want Trump. Because we understand that he gets it. It isn't about shuffling money around to this program or that. It is about bringing jobs back to our country. And if you think we have enough jobs, you are not driving through cities and seeing deserted factories, or main streets and seeing boarded up windows, or small towns and seeing 3 cars lined up, with nothing but a few old people at a diner. We have over a million closed factories and small businesses. Government cannot ship all our jobs overseas, and expect everyone to move to a city and get a job as a programmer. Or how many small towns have a walmart outside, employing a fraction of the people with a dead main street that has 1 local store selling $30 maple syrup and a hand crafted bird feeder? If America doesn't hire Trump (yes I said hire, it is a frigging job of running a failing company) and instead hires anyone who will just want to push the divided aisle greater, and continue as if we are fine - our Country will be doomed to continue its slow spiral down the toilet. Wake up. Trump 2016!
