The bottom line is that if you want a job, move to Texas or North Dakota. If you want a handout, move to California or Chicago. As for minimum wage jobs, those are entry level jobs and are intended for entry level workers, meaning 16-24 year olds. They were never and are not now intended to support a family. Below minimum wage jobs tend to be food service workers, who make far more than minimum wage in tips.

Welcome to reality,[Occupy] Wall Street Gov't. Poor progressive.

You still have the highest concentration of low salary workers, still have over 25% of your population without any medial coverage, and THAT'S A FACT!
You demorats have the highest concentration of liars.

Your own state has the same average amount below poverty as any other state, hypocrite...the same amount uninsured. http://money.cnn.com/news/economy/storysupple...

The growing economy in Texas has everylthing to do with Bush, Perry and a repbulican legislature for the last 20 years.

Mean hourly wage in Texas is 20.97 per hour, not minimum wage and the lying left tries to claim. NY 25 an hour...take away union dues, state taxes and other fees..less money in your pocket. Get it?? No, you're a demrat.

Cost of living is much lower.(According to US government) LMAO

Calfifornia has an uninsured rate of 23%...OMG two point lower than Texas.....we bad!! Florida at 23%, but goons like you single out Texas becuase it's republican led..LMAO California is liberal led and is the biggest welfare state in the UNION, boy. THAT'S A FACT.

The author of your article is a known union pleaser and loves to fabricate accusations towards successful republican led states. You'll need to do better than that.

You have nothing to brag about boy....once difference...we're improving financially...you're not .. we do have a surplus AND a rainy day fund...you don't.

B Thistle, libs are so ignorant that they can't grasp that a dollar goes a lot farther in the non-liberal, non-hell-hole states and cities. They'll continually rant that unions are great, all the while ignoring the actual cost of unions to their bottom lines.

The libs don't care. Dollars to them are pieces of paper the gov't prints AS NEEDED. What their WORTH doesn't matter.... Does Carter come to mind? To the libs,Keynsian economics are sancrosect,above suspect. Even tho the concept has been a failure everywhere it has been implemented. Based on gov't spending to "stimulate" an economy it takes money from the private sector and spread the wealth around(sound familiar?). But in reality it is cronyism in its worst form,with the gov't picking winners/losers(again,sound familiar?),usually based on whom one knows in power and/or how much one "donated" for a particular candidate/party.

The lack of coverage is often due to federal mandates. Perry often complained the federal government prevents him from offering a menu of plans.

Unless you're a slug who'd rather spend 2 years on unemployment and food stamps,maybe scam the disability programs. MANY Americans have had to downsize their lifestyle since 2007. Spending less,learning to live on less. Ain't it about time our elected misfits learn to do the same with government? Keynesian economics have NEVER worked,anywhere its been tried. Its a liberal economic pipedream. The concept should be against the law.
Reaganomics has NEVER worked anywhere it's been tried, the"free" trade, "free" market, deregulated corporate welfare economic plan is what brought America and the world to financial disaster.

The last one during Reagan's term in 1982 was the worst one since Hoover's 1929 crash, was the same exact model, see a pattern here.

"A minimun wage job is better than NO job"

That's the way teabaggers think, now they want to strip away time and a half pay for working overtime.

"Spending less,learning to live on less. Ain't it about time our elected misfits learn to do the same with government"?

Yes, especially those "spending" hawks.

May 1, 2013

On Monday, noted deficit hawk Rep. Jim Jordan (Oh.) told the Associated Press that in the interest of national security, Congress needed to give the Pentagon $436 million to make improvements to the 70-ton Abrams tank.

The one area where we are supposed to spend taxpayer money is in defense of the country,” Jordan told the AP.

The only problem with this statement is that the Pentagon doesn’t want the tank. It’s an effective weapon if you’re trying to take Berlin from the Nazis. But it has no practical use in combating the threats the United States faces today.

The Pentagon budget is stuffed with pet projects that funnel money to lawmakers’ districts. The tanks are just the start: In 2009, then-Defense Secretary Robert Gates told Congress the defense spending bill contained $6.9 billion for things he did not need. Congress approved it anyway.

A teabagger "pipe" dream.
