Mayor Vincent Gray (D-District of Columbia) vetoed a bill Thursday that would force Wal-Mart and other large retailers to pay their employees at least $12.50 an hour, calling it a "job killer" that would not advance the goal of a living wage for District of Columbia workers.

The bill put Washington at the center of a national debate on how far cities should go in trying to raise pay for low-wage workers -- and whether larger companies should be required to pay more. Supporters -- including unions, clergy and other labor advocates -- said Wal-Mart could afford the higher wages, while opponents said the bill unfairly singled out certain businesses and would have a chilling effect on economic development.

Wal-Mart fought the legislation vigorously, pledging not to build three of the six stores it has planned for the nation's capital if the bill became law. But Gray, a Democrat, said the bill would have a much larger impact than many people realized.

"The bill is a job-killer, because nearly every large retailer now considering opening a store in the district has indicated they would not come here or expand here if this bill becomes law," Gray said, citing Target, Home Depot, Wegmans and others.

The D.C. Council approved the bill in July on an 8-5 vote, one short of a veto-proof majority. It will consider overriding the veto on Tuesday.

Councilmember Vincent Orange, a lead sponsor of the bill, said Wal-Mart's threats had prevented the mayor from standing up for the working poor.

There is now a plethora of scientific proof that vaccines are actually implicated in most common diseases today and that childhood vaccines, flu shots and other kinds of inoculations systemically destroy the body's immune system.

yeah, i know it works with you folks.
the children who died are, or were, already born, so.....
which is why you freaks have to keep trying to come up with theories about a staged attack. wouldn't anyone to think you wouldn't care about children dying.
60 Minutes Report:- May 12, 1996, Madeleine Albright, "We have heard that a half million Iraqi children have died," Stahl said. "I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima??

And -- and you know, is the price worth it?" Albright replied, "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price -- we think the price is worth it.

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's response to a May 12, 1996 60 Minutes question about the over half million Muslim Iraqi children killed by the poison ordered by the Clinton Administration against the Muslim people of Iraq... "is the price worth it?" Albright replied, "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price -- we think the price is worth it"

500,000 Iraqi Muslim children killed... WWWIII... Clinton inflaming the Muslim world, Clinton turning Osama bin Laden into a WMD... made in the USA by Bill Clinton...

When Clinton Lied... America Died...

Osama Bin Laden made in the USA...(by Bill Clinton)

Not only have you War Mongering Liberals killed most of the population of the world from wars liberals started in the past century, liberals continue their killing spree...

It's the privilege to kill children you demokrats are advocating you dumbass...

It's the culture...

How long are you f*ckking morons going to pretend the great Bush recession never happened.
Yes 9-11 happened. We were going into war & we needed to boost our national security & what did Bush do? Cut taxes. Brilliant move. Every economist knows to don't cut taxes when going to war.
One day you idiots will quit using 9-11 as an excuse for poor policies. Unfunded tax cuts, unfunded expansions to Medicare, Unfunded record earmarks,
The recession started 4th quarter of 2007. My God,you even have to lie about that.
How long before you are going to admit that Clinton screwed us and Monica?
