How does $1.1 million for the UNC botanical garden help everyone in the state? That is quite the broad brush you paint with.
It is putting Negroes and Mexicans to work in legitimate paying jobs and getting them off the Welfare roles. Just want you wanted.

A $9 minimum wage would crush an already struggling economy. Keep in mind this proposal came from a man that has never ran a business or passed a budget.
You greedy bastards always claim an increase will crush the economy. Keep crying wolf.

Damn, you're on a roll!
Since most companies operate on a very small profit margin, where does he expect the money for a raise to come from? Most businesses aren't growing so that only leaves an increase in the price of goods and services to offset the raises! In govt, he just raises taxes or borrows from China to offset his spending, it doesn't work that way in buisness. Borrowing money or raising prices to cover payroll is a sure fire way to bankruptcy in a consumer driving environment!
Is VERY OBVIOUS this man has NO buisness experience!
What happens when the greedy business owners do not pay their employees enough to live on even though they are working full time? The impoverished person gets help through the government. This is money the business owner is paying. So why not cut out the middleman(government) and just pay the man a living wage?

Of course it's also obvious that the dumb masses has been dumbed down to the point to where they don't understand how business works either! Instead they'll cheer for an increase in min wage, then bitch when the prices increase or the jobs are lost all together!
Or we look at the actual history of minimum wage increases and see you are exagerating.

The little man getting a bit more cash goes instantly back into the economy. Unlike the cash made by the wealthy. They are notorious for hourding up cash thus stifling the economy.
The little man is the one buying the products being made. It keeps the wheels turning. This is a basic economic truth.

You need to be in the trenches, idiot. You're unemployable because you're just another lazy idiot, which the taxpayers are supporting. You can't and won't work, like your fat ass whale blubber. You and your tub of lard can afford to lay on your worthless lazy backsides on computers, all day and night, criticizing the world and crying about how your lowlife lazy asses deserve more. Computers bought by hard working law-abiding taxpayers, by way of a couple of SSI Nut Checks. You're nothing but a bunch of pathetic white trash parasitic boils, just like your alley junkie allies.

40 hours is what Obama spoke of last night. 32 or more hours may be technically considered full time, but that was not the point of the matter Obama was discussing.
Maybe you just heard Obama saying, spend spend spend?

Prices for consumer goods will increase. That's a fact.

The minimum wage increase to $9 an hour is not the answer.

Does it not cost more to live in Hawaii than NC?

Of course it does.

Someone in NC making $28K annually would need to make $50K to maintain the same lifestyle.

The minimum wage could be increased to $10,$20, or $50 dollars an hour but that will not necessarily present a livable wage because all additional cost are passed on to the consumer.

As "TSF" there would be an increase in government revenue but I am certain this too would be squandered and accounted for before it is ever collected.

What am I thinking....this "potential" revenue increase was spent before it was proposed.

Cutting entitlements isn't about making the rich richer, that's absurd. It's about taking the power away from govt and putting it back into the hands of those that need help and allowing them to use that power to rise from poverty.
Cutting entitlements would not make the rich richer. Why? Because those people buy what the rich are selling, thus making them rich.
Now some rich people are so greedy and blind to who is buying their products, they lose sight of this big picture. Thus they think cutting entitlements will get them a tax cut. Maybe it will, but a tax cut is not much help if people have no money to buy your products. It is a vicious circle, otherwise known as an economy.
Note how countries with a stronger middle class are the ones who have a strong upper class.
The fewer people in poverty, the more the rich will get richer.

I am not saying spread the wealth evenly, I am saying if wealth is spread out a bit, we all get richer and the rich get even richer.

Exactly. Why continue to take now and have a bigger sum, plus interest if any, to pay back later when you can start to pay it back now? It's called being fiscally responsible.....it's a new concept to the Commucrats!

Yea, right!!! Like when they gave an ADDITIONAL $50,000 tax BREAK to each and every attorney in each and every law firm in the entire state of NC .
Refusing the money could be viewed as responsible IF the money had been applied to the national debt principal, but that will not happen. All it does is make NC poor the whipping boy for the republikans. That attitude is why they are the party of stupid. They are just being republikans, another word for assholes.

Agreed to an extent, the problem is the ideology of your party. With the way the Ruler is addressing the issue it isn't about bringing up the poor, it's about bringing down the rich and the middle class. It's been tried this way time and time again, it doesn't work. The poor stay poor, the middle class become poor, and the rich become middle class, leaving all of the wealth for the ones in control.....the govt!

I heard him say "it will not cost a dime". However under his watch he has increased the national debt by $58.6 trillion dimes.

The Employment Policies Institute claimed the proposed minimum wage increase could lead to companies shedding 467,000 jobs.

I guess that's not to crushing on an already stagnate economy.

You make a good a point that government bureucrats are unresponsive to their constituents. Mecklenberg voted down the arena, so the bureaucrats built it anyway, with the voters money. Now, they are giving Carolina Panthers $130 million of taxpayer money while the streets are full of potholes. Kind of like taking poor people's money to give Broyhill (Furniture Brands International)$4,000,000 of taxpayer money to cut out jobs. We need to start amputating the hands of persons stealing from the public treasury---right below the ears. That is what it will take to stop this madness.

Our republikan NC legislature is really helping NC "save" money right now. They just voted down receiving 800 million dollars of federal money to pay insurance premiums for poor people who cannot afford insurance. Also, they just voted to lower the maximum unemploymewnt payments to $350 starting this summer. That eliminates $ 2 billion more federal dollars coming into NC for unemployed persons to buy groceries, medicine etc. So, to make a political statement, republikans just cut off the flow of $2,800,000,000 dollars into NC. Exactly how that will improve our economy hasnt been considered.( it is like shooting the economy in the foot) I just wish republikans would stop "helping" so much.
How can you make the first post then come back with the second? Sounds contradicting to me!
