<quoted text>Give me a break, raising the minimum wage will cost thousands of jobs. How many? No way to tell for sure but the more the increase in MW the more job losses will be. Now if the economy is strong enough at the time those loses will return over time, but the economy does not appear to be very strong right now. If the increase to 10 bucks is over 10 years, I can accept that. But a rapid increase to 10 I can not. As far as your last sentence, that is beyond socialistic it is communist. I do think that there are many people making far more money then they deserve. It used to be like 20-1 bosses to worker ratio for salaries. Now it is often 2000-1 and more which is disgusting. But being a free country that is the way it goes. Government regulation isnt the answer. Educated people who stand up and do something about it on their own is the only thing to do in a free country.
Since you think you know science better than scientists, it only makes sense that you think you know economics better than economists. Of course, you have no education in either and think that supermarket tabloids are trusted news sources.

So there's that.

There has never been a net job loss from any minimum wage increase. Can you provide some evidence to back your contention that this time, unlike all the others, it would have the opposite effect?

That was one writer's opinion (from Forbes, which usually leans in favor of big business). It was meant as a counterpoint to all the moaning from the right this evening. I don't believe it either, but the truth is somewhere between there and your worst case scenario. However, we will never reach any kind of likely scenario in this discussion, because, for whatever reason, you are unable to discuss, reason, and compromise. You shoot down anything that comes from the left by reflex, and make snide, untrue remarks. That's not even an argument, just a piss-poor attitude. No wonder Congress is gridlocked and unproductive.
I shoot down anything that comes from the left? Have you ever heard of the pot and the kettle?

So as long as big government is controlling our lives, you are willing to ditch capitalism and the free market? You need to join your buddy Snowden in Russia.

Bacon is right, I agreed to an increase in the minimum wage to $10.10/hour. But to think that this will not affect prices is stupid. If you look at the mission statement of virtually every publicly traded company, you will see that "maximizing shareholder value" is a part of that mission statement. In order to protect their profit margins, companies are either going to raise prices or lower costs. That isn't a democrat or republican argument, it is just a fact. The left needs to learn that companies are not in business to over pay losers while they lay around doing nothing. That is the democrat's job.

I have already told you one thousand times that America spends MORE than any other nation to insure fewer and get worse healthcare outcomes.
If we are paying MORE now, then implementing a one-payer system would cost LESS. We would SAVE money.
As an added bonus, the monetary burden businesses have for paying for excessively priced private plans would end, and if economists are correct -- wages would go up.
just like the V.A. It runs smoothly and every patient is seen quickly and treated immediately. More bureaucracy is always best, especially in medical care. The government knows best and they are only concerned about you.

There would actually be LESS bureaucracy and more transparency since a one-payer system would eliminate the insurance co. "middleman."

As for the VA, Republicans blocked a Democrat bill that would have opened 27 new VAs to address the needs of veterans well before the recent problems were brought to light.

Manchin just caused a big job loss to WV.
Beretta considered moving a manufacturing plant to WV but declined citing the reasons being Manchins anti gun stance.
Of course like any two faced politician he is denying any responsibility, but it is plainly stated in Berettas statement.
Joe needs to go.
