A $9 minimum wage would crush an already struggling economy. Keep in mind this proposal came from a man that has never ran a business or passed a budget.

Obama is doing the best he can. No one said being the President of the United States is an EASY job. If any one on this forum can do better, then by all means, start planning and running for 2016.

I don't think any one on this forum has been happy with ANY President. All you people do is Bitch, Bitch and Bitch some more. Must be an exciting life.

Yes, I agree. I did some reading yesterday and the Catholic Church may be headed for bankruptcy, due to lawsuits against them for sexual abuse of children by priests. Do you think that abolishing the vow of celibacy within the church might stop or slow this abuse?

Damn, you're on a roll!
Since most companies operate on a very small profit margin, where does he expect the money for a raise to come from? Most businesses aren't growing so that only leaves an increase in the price of goods and services to offset the raises! In govt, he just raises taxes or borrows from China to offset his spending, it doesn't work that way in buisness. Borrowing money or raising prices to cover payroll is a sure fire way to bankruptcy in a consumer driving environment!
Is VERY OBVIOUS this man has NO buisness experience!

Of course it's also obvious that the dumb masses has been dumbed down to the point to where they don't understand how business works either! Instead they'll cheer for an increase in min wage, then bitch when the prices increase or the jobs are lost all together!

So, the minimum wage is now what $7.15 per hour? That's a yearly gross of $14,872. If the minimum age is raised to $9.00 per hour, that's a yearly gross of $18,720. Just how many of you could live on either of these wages, that is after taxes?

It's called living within your means. At $9 an hour, you can't afford a $30k car, a house of any kind, you don't NEED a cell phone or premium TV, or that 60" flat screen to watch it on, or an xbox to play on that big screen, you dont eat out 5 nights a week, you don't need a computer, etc... You live within your means! The problem is we have become an entitlement society to where everyone believes they're entitled to those things regardless of their income.
The "poor" in America aren't poor by the worlds standards, they're spoiled. Ask anyone in Africa or the Middle East, where we give billions to ever year, if they could live off of $19k a year? They'd fell like billionaires!

Just asking, how many hours a week are you using? When I worked for Belk, full time was 32 hours a week.

I would love to read that, the Vatican has some of the most priceless artifacts in the world. Hard to imagine bankrupt.

Interesting theory. Given even infinite time, the probability of that is infinitesimal although a possibility. Many possibilities exist which will never happen.

You must remember the President spends hours practicing bowling, golf, cards, because he likes to win. Because I know it's gonna be asked: http://www.forbes.com/sites/richkarlgaard/201...

If you can't afford to buy just how does that help the economy? What good is a lot full of $30k cars to a dealer who can't sell them? Or anything alse for that matter. I'm sure most of you here have more than one car, home, tv and all the latest gadgets. Imo, our elected officials and cooperate America need to take a pay cut and the minimum wage should be set at $10.00 per hour. In order for entitlement programs to be cut the scale needs to be tipped.

You make a good a point that government bureucrats are unresponsive to their constituents. Mecklenberg voted down the arena, so the bureaucrats built it anyway, with the voters money. Now, they are giving Carolina Panthers $130 million of taxpayer money while the streets are full of potholes. Kind of like taking poor people's money to give Broyhill (Furniture Brands International)$4,000,000 of taxpayer money to cut out jobs. We need to start amputating the hands of persons stealing from the public treasury---right below the ears. That is what it will take to stop this madness.

<quoted text>Yet Mecklenburg Co., which has been run by the Commucrats for years, has a rate of 72.99 on the hundred and they've been claiming the same success as Caldwell Co. You see, it's politics 101, both parties are guilty, but unfortunately for Char/Meck, they've been experiencing "white flight" for the last several years. Surrounding counties, and especially York Co. in S.C., have seen a mass increase of white, middle class to wealthy families fleeing the extremely high taxes enforced by the liberals....and they claimed they didn't raise taxes as well.

The wealthy in this country don't NEED any of these things either, they just WANT them. They can have muliples of all these things, some which may be rarely used, but that's okay, let's cut entitlements so we can have even more.
