Once again Carol, you're just reading the part of the report you want and misstating that. Over all, the budget office estimated that lifting the minimum wage to $10.10 and indexing it to inflation would reduce total employment by about 0.3 percent, or 500,000 workers. But it cautioned that the estimate was imprecise, with the job losses likely to fall in a range from practically nothing to one million.
Even at the 500,000 mark the increase in unemployment would amount to three tenths of one percent.
Several top labor economists said on Tuesday that the budget office was overstating the proposal’s effect on the job market. Lawrence Katz of Harvard, for instance, said that the budget office had used “a lot of off-the-shelf estimates” of the jobs effect, and that if it had emphasized findings from higher-quality studies, it would have found a smaller or negligible impact on total employment.
It will lift 900,000 families out of poverty reducing government expenditures for AFDC and SNAP programs. It will also increase the incomes of 16.5 million low-wage workers in an average week. This will increase spending on goods and services and stimulate the economy.
Obama only increased the minimum wage for workers in federal contracts. Raising the minimum wage across the board needs the approval of Congress nitwit.
Show us the text in the Constitution that gives the President the authority to set wages.

The law the Federal Acquisition Regulations were written to enforce states wages will not be less than the previous year.
Show us the text in the Constitution that gives the President the authority to rewrite laws.

Obama... constitutional lawyer, my ass.

white Christian male who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest Republic in the history of mankind.

“Religious institutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths, or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of an established religion tends to make the clergy unresponsive to their own people, and leads to corruption within religion itself. Erecting the 'wall of separation between church and state,' therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society.”

There was no targeting.
Issa, being the dishonest POS he is, asked for a report on the IRS investigating right whiner groups seeking the non-profit status.
The IRS provided such a report.
Then Issa said that since the report only talked about right whiners, that the IRS targeted them.
The dumbass lying Issa never mentioned that he requested information on only right whiner groups.
More proof you people are dumber than sh*t.
Explain to us why Lois Lerner proclaimed the 5th Amendment right to not incriminate herself of committing a felony inside the IRS.

...while useless idiots on Capitol Hill get the best health care taxpayer money can buy.
It's past time that public servants who actually work for their paycheck get treated with some respect instead of contempt. There is no excuse for our veterans not receiving medical care at least as good as a worthless POS congressman gets. Our government gives away more money, annually, to foreign countries in the form of "redistribution of wealth" payments than what it would cost to just treat the veterans concerns in a fair, just and competent way.
The truth is coming out about what the O'bama administration is doing to our troops-you know his comment on 'sometimes you have to give Granny a pill?' well that is what is the directive at the VA for the vets. It is so bad that if you don't follow the O'bama administration program you will be kicked out. They are red flagging soldiers that won't take the medicine. The VA's under the O'bama directive have kicked out organizations like Strike Force that are older Vets mostly from Vietnam that try to convince these soldiers coming back from Afghanistan and Iraq that they do not need to medicate.But what does the O'bama administration do? throw them out of the VA hospitals. I have in my hot little hands a booklet that was given to the Homeless Vets--in it it states that if they don't take their medicine their benefits and the Vet program will be cut off and they will never get any help or get off the streets. People need to call their congress representative. In Wisconsin we straightened the VA out--but Illinois is a cess pool-if you live in Illinois there is no need to bother the liberals like Dick Durbin--when I asked if he vehemently supported the troops his people shrugged and said yeah he supports them. This was after 3 times of asking. In Illinois, if they are able to see a doctor--the fight line of defense is to get them on Oxy and after that they put them on methadone. The only way many of these soldiers can stay out of the arm of the government run VA is to homeless. It is a disgrace. But with the help of the American people we should be able to put the VA back in to the hands of the American people and get the soldiers the help they need--and get the moslem doctors out of the VAs that think giving heroin (oxy) to our soldiers is a treatment for everything. Thank you.

Short history lesson:
The United States was the first nation created where the people are not subjects of any government, and the government is a subject of the people.
The people of the United States are guaranteed the right to speak their mind, have a free press, choose their own religion, arm themselves and defend their own individual rights, are free from the government spying on them without evidence of a crime, and can have their life or property taken from them only by due process of law.
(fast forward to the last half of the 20th century)
The Democrats begin the Cold War with the conviction of Alger Hiss while spying for the enemy of the United States.
The Democrats openly join the enemy of the United States during the Cold War.
The Democrats invent a system of lies about Vietnam to slander the veterans and country, and indoctrinate the entire country with it.
The Democrats invent a system of lies about the Cold War front in Central America and indoctrinate the coutry with it.
9/11
The Democrats support the front in Iraq in the war the Arab Islamists started.
The Democrats invent a system of lies about the war the Arab Islamist terrorists started and indoctrinate the country with it.
The Democrats obtain the Presidency and use the office of President to rebel against the Constitutional Republic of the United States.
The Democrats install a dictatorship where the President writes his own laws to suit political whim.
The Democrats join the enemy in the war the Arab Islamist terrorists started and sabotage Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Democrats give Arab Islamist terrorists in Saudi Arabia "special traveller" status to enter United States without scrutiny.
The Democrats give visas to terrorists with "limited" known contact with known terrorists groups.

I'm sure there are other events you can add to this abreviated list.
