Actually $10.10 is more than I expected out of Obama...but it is still grossly inadequate.

This just pisses me off more. So he does this because of low poll numbers.

Why wasn’t this done 4 years ago?

Actually he is doing nothing since no one makes that small a pay rate already. And yes it is about his poll numbers.

Are you kidding these are government contractors…they use to be government workers years ago. 98% of government workers have a college education.
These contractors pay their worker crap wages…
This is what the teabaggers did…the politicians get help and kickbacks from these companies.

Typical Obama and Democrat ploy…just throw pennies to the vulnerable. This is only going to affect a small group of people. I tired of these kinds of PR ploys.

I want Obama to change my life…

Mike no one knows for sure how many employees will be affected but it probably is close to zero.

The democrats deserve to lose all branches of government……they are probably aiming to lose the mid terms. That way they can appease the power that be…government at a standstill.

Republicans in Congress. It's why he can't get it done now.

Nope, he is totally ineffective with using political, ceremonial and media power…he doesn’t want to ruffle feathers.

He thinks the apex of power lies at legislation…but it really is at inspiring us all.

He could get it done if he could show it was actually good for the economy. Most of us know it is only a political act to even talk about it.

How on earth could raising people above the poverty line NOT be good for the economy. He's explained it. MEga economists have explained it. The bigger the middle class, the better the economy is. It's an historical fact.

Nah, he's calling on the states to raise the minimum wages and bypass the republican obstructionism which has been going on since 2007. And he's succeeding, at least in states with democratic governors.

Are we assuming that the poverty line is fixed indefinitely?

As the cost of living increases can't we entertain the thought that pressure to adjust the poverty line will be the logical result? I believe the discussion revolves around the impossibility of nailing down that line. We will always have a population that falls below that line, it is in the nature of the game. Ever watch "The Biggest Loser"?

Info wars is a place where lies are spread. Give me some legitimate sources who don't have a full page of spreading lies.
