Increasing the minimum wage sufficiently to support a family will result in significant inflation.
Let's say the minimum wage is increased from $7.25 to $15.
If you are already making $10 or $12 or $15 per hour, how much should you then be paid?
If minimum wage were 11$-12$ an hour, people (with some SENSE anyway) would be a lot better off...providing the economy DEflated some (as is now) in (some)price areas along with it.

(and then the rest could just be adjusted accordingly)

Christie doesn't need a make over. He didn't WANT to run for POTUS- this time around. He was ALREADY busy doing a good job, as NJ's governor.

Taxi drivers in Iran have been seen on American television holding up empty plates saying we can't eat nuclear fuel. Iran will accept olive branch and come to the peace table, sanctions are working. Big Isreali Air Force says so.

It still comes down to one thing, the denser the population base its best if none of them have guns. Look at England and Japan, two good examples of high density populations on a small land mass that ban guns. The countries that don't, such as some of those high density living South American countries end up with simular stats.
This is the point that gets lost with the gun lobby and this freedom to carry arms BS. When it was drafted, there was no police force, or high tech army and a population that was just a bit over 1% of what it is now on the same size land mass. This is a no brainer to anyone who is not clouded by misinformation & emotional connections to something that puts everyone at a higher risk. That is the real statistic not NRA bs.

It doesn't work that way, minimum wage just drives inflation. You'll never catch up.

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.

Obama can't balance a budget...

Here is one possible explanation...

"The Federal Election Commission has just fined President Obama’s 2008 campaign to the tune of $375,000 for basically not having their books in order..."
