How about New York (and New Jersey) increasing their own taxes to pay for their own storm relief?

Part of the package is to pay for overtime for local government employees. Why should taxpayers in Kansas or Idaho or California pay for that?

This is about money, not religion.

"christian" without a capital "C" is totally disrespectful.

Wildfires...California...

"Hollywood actor Rob Lowe has described his family's dramatic escape from an "Armageddon-like" wildfire that destroyed more than 100 homes in a celebrity-studded enclave in California."

So helping Hollywood Millionaires rebuild their homes is something we must "all pay" for?

If you were already making $11-12 per hour, how would you feel about being demoted to minimum wage.
Increasing the minimum wage by that much would be grossly inflationary.
Even rich folks would want more to cover the higher cost of their Big Mac.
Why would any rational anyone, "demote" jobs back to minimum wage, when they could just adjust the wage economics accordingly, and implement a PRICE freeze on anything else.
Then there would be NO need demand "more" to cover any addition costs.
Kind of like that elusive to America thing the past few years, called a B-U-D-G-E-T.
Tsk.

Duh.
