More importantly why have automobile prices increased 20% when the economy is not growing?<quoted text>If you can't afford to buy just how does that help the economy? What good is a lot full of $30k cars to a dealer who can't sell them? Or anything alse for that matter. I'm sure most of you here have more than one car, home, tv and all the latest gadgets.

How will raising the minimum wage to $10 an hour tip the scale of entitlements?
