Cutting taxes has the same effect as raising the minimum wage...it puts more money in people's pockets, yet these loony left wingers will fight tooth and nail to raise taxes. they're crazy.
People making minimum wage most likely would not be paying federal income taxes.

In the past, Republicans passed the tax credits as a way of avoiding raising the minimum wages. Sort of like subsidizing businesses.

that's less than $15,000 a year for 40 hours. Can you live on that?
It would be interesting to have the members of Congress participate in a means test for a month, go find an apartment, buy food, gas, insurance, health insurance, daycare etc. then get back to us; and let Miss Phuckface Marsha Blackburn, get back to us with her effing whiny southern twang that sounds like fingernails on a chalkboard.
40 hours a week x 50 weeks = 2000 hours x 9 dollars an hour = 18,000 not 15,000 once again your breath is stronger than your math skills , liberals and math don't mix well .

Exactly. Therefore, the state government of the half of Virginia that left the union was never recognized by the federal republic. The state government of the half of Virginia that remained in the federal republic was recognized as the legitimate representation of the state of Virginia. And, that legitimate representation of the state of Virginia petitioned the federal republic to be a separate state in accordance with the requirements written in the Constitution.
Or, the state government that left the federal republic was still recognized as the legitimate representation of the state of Virginia.
The question now is, was the rebel government of the state of Virginia the legitimate representation in the federal republic, or was the loyal government of the state of Virginia that didn't rebel against the federal republic the legitimate representation of the state of Virginia?
If the loyal government that didn't rebel against the federal republic is the legitimate representation of the state of Virginia, then all requirements of the Constitution were satisfied.
The restored government was recognized by the Union, as will as Abraham Lincoln, as the State of Virginia with it's capital in Wheeling.

The Federal minimum wage is not $9, it's $7.25 so her math is just fine.

In one segment of the film, according to a former official who saw it,[executive vice president Adam] Brandon is seen waking from a nap at his desk. In what appears to be a dream or a nightmare, he wanders down a hallway and spots a giant panda on its knees with its head in the lap of a seated Hillary Clinton and apparently fellating the then-secretary of state.

Sockpuppets are such idiots.
""Senate Republicans on Tuesday ruled out placing armed drone strikes under the authority of a special court, arguing the move would be a dangerous intrusion on presidential power.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) last week raised the idea of creating a new oversight court for drones that would be patterned after the checks and balances that govern surveillance.
But senior Republicans in the Senate dismissed that plan as unrealistic, and warned it would undermine critical counterterrorism efforts.
“I think it is a terrible idea,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told The Hill.
A new court would be “the biggest intrusion ... in the history of [this] country” on the president’s authority as commander in chief, Graham said.""

One of my first jobs was working at a shoe factory making minimum wage. I think it was $1.60 an hour. Inflation corrected for today, that's like $10.60 an hour.
Guess what, companies survived!!!!!!! They prospered!!!!!!!!
Yeah it's crazy. People making more money, spend more money, buy more product which helps grow the economy which is the last thing rigthwingers want.

Not a single word in your post cites where in the Constitution a State can be broken up to create new states!!
ROFLMAO
You're making a fool of yourself again, as you did with your brainless talk about geothermal systems.
Try reading Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution:
""The argument that West Virginia may not be a state rests on the troublesome language of Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1 of the U.S. Constitution:
New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.
The mandate within the second clause --- that “no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State”–-- appears to flatly prohibit the creation of a new state from within the territory of a preexisting state, irrespective of whether consent is given. The case of West Virginia, carved out from Virginia, would seem to fall under this prohibition.
WVA was created in defiance of the Constitution.
It is UnConstitutional on it's face, and you're still an idot!!
Time for you to run off and hide, greasemonkey!!

I'll just pull someting out of your own post here....

"...without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress."

You prove your own point wrong.
