Not hard to comprehend.
Very hard to understand.
How teabaggers still believe in a policy that has been a failure, since Reagan implemented it over 30 years ago.
And still is a failure today after 5 presidents were fooled into continuing tax cuts.
The "trickle" you feel is corporate urine, teabaggers think it's rain.
So, you can't defend your position? Dig deep into your "feelings" and maybe you can guilt us into going against the math.

I feel sorry for you, so short on facts and so long on stupid right-wing ideology and apparently unable to tell the difference. The federal minimum wage originated in the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) signed by President Franklin Roosevelt on June 25, 1938. The law established a minimum wage of 25 cents per hour for all employees who produced products shipped in interstate commerce. It was one dollar in 1956. Itís a modest economic measure but a big political oneóa proxy for larger discussions of freedom and justice even as its economic significance is miniscule. An economy based on low wages for workers is fit for your average Banana Republic not for a, supposedly, leading and model economy for the rest of the world. 80 % of our workforce is paid by the our, half of the employees at fast food restaurants and WalMart are on minimum wage and supported by the federal Govít is that what you f-ing dick head are advocating? These workers are not teenagers, most have to support their families.
Uh, sorry, Wall Street says it was Reagan's plan. I'm sure he's always correct.

If giving corporations and rich people tax breaks created
jobs as is claimed, we would have had a lot more jobs
at the end of the Bush presidency. Bush gave them big tax
breaks and their share of the wealth went way up, but at the
end of the Bush presidency the economy was losing 700,000
per month. There was a big sucking sound though, and it was
from the hundreds of billions of dollars being off-shored
or invested in the Chinese economy. Anywhere but America.
Tax cuts never pay for themselves. They didn't under Reagan.
But he did raise taxes 11 times.
Yeah, we'll just forget about the housing bubble created by libbies with "everyone is entitled to home ownership whether they can afford it or not" policies. That's what popped and affected banks and then the domino effect.

You are looking at that one dimensionally. You have to take the consumer into consideration as well. The consumer wanted cheap. You have to consider unions. They contributed to the move to China. You have to consider the pages of attorneys in the yellow pages. They want US employees to sue their employer or worker's comp for stubbing their toe at work. That doesn't happen in China. You have to consider the abuse of minimum wage in the US, and the inability to learn from that abuse's failure. That doesn't happen in China. You have to consider the people collecting Welfare, Food Stamps, Government Housing, free phones and free minutes, and the numerous other government handout programs that allow them to live better than if they worked.
Those are just a few reasons jobs were moved to China. If not for tax breaks for corporations, more jobs would be in China.
Careful, facts and libbies don't mix.

President Bush touted his goal Monday of boosting minority home ownership by 5.5 million before the end of the decade through grants to low-income families and credits to developers.

"Too many American families, too many minorities, do not own a home. There is a home ownership gap in America. The difference between African-American and Hispanic home ownership is too big," Bush told a crowd at St. Paul AME Church in Atlanta.

Citing data he used Saturday in his weekly radio address, Bush said that while nearly three-quarters of white Americans own their homes, less than half of African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans are homeowners.

He urged Congress to expand the American Dream Down-Payment Fund, which would provide $200 million in grants over five years to low-income families who are first-time home buyers.

The money would be used for down payments, one of the major obstacles to home ownership, Bush said.

It is anticipated that 40,000 low-income families -- receiving about $5,000 each -- would benefit from those grants, he added.

To encourage the construction of single-family homes in neighborhoods where affordable housing is scarce, developers would receive $2.4 billion in tax credits to build lower-cost housing in distressed areas.

The fund also would offer financial education and counseling to protect home buyers from abuses and help them get the best loan terms possible, Bush said.


Bush added, "I do believe in the American dream. I believe there is such a thing as the American dream. And I believe those of us who have been given positions of responsibility must do everything we can to spotlight the dream."

He said, "Owning a home is a part of that dream."

Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the federal Home Loan Banks -- the government-sponsored corporations that handle home mortgages -- will increase their commitment to minority markets by more than $440 billion, Bush said.

Under one of the initiatives launched by Freddie Mac, consumers with poor credit will be able to obtain mortgages with interest rates that automatically decline after a period of consistent payments, he added.

Darn "liberal".

PHOENIX -- President Bush traveled to two swing states with sizable Hispanic populations yesterday and talked up his proposals to increase home ownership opportunities for minorities.

"Not enough minorities own their own homes," the president said during a stop at a carpenters' training center in Phoenix, which followed a talk about home ownership at the New Mexico State Fairgrounds in Albuquerque. "And it seems to me it makes sense to encourage all to own homes."

White House officials have frequently noted the continuing increase in minority home ownership rates, linking it yesterday with the president's call in June 2002 to increase the number of minority homeowners by 5.5 million by the end of this decade.

Administration officials dispute that. Bush has strongly backed what he calls an "ownership society," where people start their own businesses and buy their own homes. And Bush said in both New Mexico and Arizona yesterday that increasing the minority home ownership rate is good for the entire country. "When we're talking about home ownership, we're talking about for everybody," Bush said in New Mexico.

While the Bush administration has been promoting home ownership for Section 8 renters, it is seeking to cut the rental program itself. Bush's 2005 budget calls for a $1.1 billion decrease in the funding used to back Section 8 vouchers, which are distributed by public housing authorities.

The president yesterday spoke about the Section 8 voucher program in the past tense. "It was important to help people rent," Bush said in Phoenix, "but, remember, we want people owning."

Bush has proposed ending the requirement that housing authorities distribute 75 percent of vouchers to people at or below 30 percent of area median income.

Poor teabagger.

They like the sequester because they hate anything to do with maintaining public institutions and infrastructure.

Thank you! I was about to go through all that to prove him/her wrong. Not that it does any good. He/she never admits being wrong. That seems to be a trend among liberals. Notice the avoidance of being invited to prove I posted anything about Walter Williams.

Translation:
Conservatives don't deserve to be treated as we liberals claim to treat people. Liberals have bent over backwards to pull the wool over their eyes, but it is clear now that they won't fall for it or go along with our plans to be a socialist nation. They like the sequester because Obama thought it would give him leverage to pass more devastating policies, but it backfired on him. Now, all we can do is blame it on the Republicans.
