How generous of him...like that money is coming out of his own personal bank account. Wow, how benevolent of him since it costs him absolutely nothing to jabber on acting like he's doing anything positive for the poor. Rent is the first thing to go up after an increase of the minimum wage. Landlords can't stand the thought that any surplus of income might make into the pockets of anybody but themselves.
As IF it will improve anybody's life economically. Every time the minimum wage is raised the cost of living also goes up. There is no winning for all the losing concerning those at or below the poverty level, at least not legally.
We all know that merchants always find a way to make up for the hit that a raise for everybody costs them. Walmart is the most obviously notorious because they have so many employees.
It's a feel good load of crap. It's not about helping the poor. It's about taxes. Raise the minimum wage and as you say it will zero out. What won't zero out is the increase in withholding taxes that are paid. It's all about more money for the government.

If he did quit smoking, it was fairly recently. That means he smoked during his entire first term. But did you ever see him holding a cigarette? They kept it out of the public eye.

No one ever knew Jackie Kennedy Onassis was a fairly heavy smoker too. They just made sure the public never saw her smoking.

The Proposed Republican Replacement For ObamaCare Is A Big Tax Hike

Yesterday, three Republican Senators — Tom Coburn (Okla.), Richard Burr (N.C.), and Orrin Hatch (Utah)– put forward a plan to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare. They call it the Patient CARE Act, and my colleague Avik Roy says it is “the most credible plan yet” offered by the GOP.

Except the Coburn-Burr-Hatch plan (read it here) amounts, among other things, to a big tax increase. The main way that it remains budget neutral is by making employer-provided health insurance plans, which are currently not taxed, partially taxable as income. In fact, this income replaces income that, under ObamaCare, comes from taxing companies, including the tax on medical device companies paid by firms like Medtronic MDT -0.51% and Stryker SYK -0.25%.

This fact has not escaped the notice of some prominent health reform allies.“It is a huge tax increase on workers without any confidence that they will be able to afford health insurance in the future,” says Bob Kocher, a partner at venture capital firm Venrock who previously worked in the Obama administration.

It is “essentially a very large Republican tax increase,” says Ezekiel Emanuel, the Diane V.S. Levy and Robert M. Levy University Professor of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania and another former Obama advisor.“It’s quite clear the plan is to put a bigger burden on middle class Americans.”

Here’s what the Senators propose: right now, health insurance is not taxed as income. This is arguably the original sin of the U.S. healthcare system, which has insulated consumers from health costs and allowed prices to skyrocket. During World War II, wages were frozen but pensions and benefits were exempted; in 1943 the Internal Revenue Service ruled that these benefits weren’t taxable, either.

Many health economists believe this is a bad thing, because it shields people from paying their own premiums, and Coburn, Burr, and Hatch deserve credit for tackling this head on. But that doesn’t make this any more politically workable – or appealing to those of us who get health insurance through our employers.

A North Carolina police officer was indicted in the shooting death of an unarmed man who had crashed his car after prosecutors presented the case to a second grand jury.

Police Officer Randall Kerrick was indicted Monday on one count of voluntary manslaughter, reported the Charlotte Observer, just one week after a previous grand jury declined to indict him on voluntary manslaughter in the Sept. 14 shooting death of Jonathan Ferrell.

The officer shot the former Florida A&M football player 10 times after Ferrell crashed into a tree and sought help at a nearby home.

Jerry Springer sat down with HuffPost Live on Tuesday, questioning why the public holds any hatred toward President Barack Obama.
Springer, who is hosting a new Discovery Channel series called "TABLOID," argued that "we have built such disrespect for the president" -- a thought that is unacceptable in his mind.
"Why would you ever hate Barack Obama?," Springer asked. "You may not like his policies. You may say 'respectfully sir, I disagree. I'm going to vote this way or I want that.' But is there a human being on the planet Earth that wouldn't want Barack Obama as a son? I mean look at what this young man has achieved, and what he's done on his own, and how he's become this great leader."
Springer has expressed similar support for Obama in the past. Back in July 2012, during the heat of Obama's reelection campaign, the longtime Democratic supporter described the president as "truly exceptional."
“He’s so competent and so smart, I just don't see why we wouldn't want him for four more years as president," Springer said at the time

Facts About Ex-Im Bank Loans To Support Petrobras's Purchases of Goods and Services Made by American Workers
BACKGROUND:
What is Ex-Im Bank? Ex-Im Bank is an independent federal agency that helps create and maintain U.S. jobs by filling gaps in private export financing at no cost to American taxpayers. The Bank provides a variety of financing mechanisms, including working capital guarantees, export-credit insurance, and financing to help foreign buyers purchase U.S. goods and services.
Ex-Im Bank operates without taxpayer funding and earns revenue that helps reduce the deficit. By charging fees and interest on all loan-related transactions, Ex-Im Bank is self-sustaining and is able to cover all operation costs and potential losses while also producing revenue. The Bank has generated $3.4 billion for U.S. taxpayers over the past five years.

They've brought this Petrobras bs before.
They don't look at how it's financed or care. All they want is to tie it politically.
But that's ok. Like everything else, they're either superficial about their reality when facts are light on their side, or try to bury it deep if it cuts deep.
Let me explain to you what the Ex-Im Bank is.

The Export-Import Bank of the United States is the official export credit agency of the United States federal government.

Using the money Obama is giving Petrobras from the Ex-Im Bank to buy producing oil and gas leases in deepwater Gulf of Mexico qualifies as "U.S. goods and services".

Do you need to go over that again?

Why do you still pretend to live in Hawaii?

Get better informed.

It is senseless to argue anything because you just ignore the truth & post you exact same baloney.
Okay, let's dissect my post then and you tell me what isn't true.

Democrats put up the most resistance to Bush's warnings about the impending housing market crisis and reining in F&F.

(I have mucho evidence to prove this is true if you'd look at the videos and read the articles.)

Democrats had control of the purse strings two years preceding the recession.

(This is absolutely true. Democrats won back both houses in 2006.)

Obama spiked up the deficit to major proportions.

($17 trillion isn't enough spiking?)

The reality of Obamacare will sink in after March 31. If it fails, Obama will be blamed.

(How can this not be true?)

So what wasn't true? Speak up or shut up...as they say.
