Mike bloomberg has spent his life getting things done.

Started a company from scratch, creating 20,000 good paying jobs.

That's getting it done.

As mayor, he rebuilt a shaken city after 9/11, created over 450,000 jobs.

Expanded healthcare to 700,000 and raised teacher pay.

Elected for three terms because he got things done.

Mike beat the nra, strengthening gun laws.

He beat big coal, closing over 300 dirty coal fired plants.

Mike is still getting things done.

So ask yourself.

For president, do you want a debater or a doer?

Someone with workable, common sense plans to fix healthcare and create jobs, who's done both.

Mike has the record and resources to beat trump.

And it will take both.

But mike will get it done.
