Sure as long as it's another way to buy votes from the youth. Obama's policy failure has made life miserable for millions of America from the young to the aged. Most of what we experience is the liberal plan of action. Make all the peasants dependent on Uncle Suger, spy on them so we know what the little servants are doing and put them dependent on health care so we can weed out the non believers in the great workers paradise.

Youth and ten percent of Americans trying to feed their family on poverty wages and the majority of Americans- over 75 percent who say it's immoral to pay anything less.

Why doesn't the African King just use his pen, and his phone, and his EO, and change that wage increase? That is right, it has to do with money, he must use the House Republicans. Ain't gonna happen.

Wages are lowest and poverty the highest in Southern Republican States where fewer citizens receiving low wages pay no federal income tax.

You would think if they had opportunity Southern Republicans would vote to improve their living conditions and break away from being dependent on Liberal income tax that is used to furnish them with federal assistence payments.

You would think that Conservatives would be leaping to raise the minimum wage to get more working people off of welfare and food stamps and thus cut government spending but apparently Conservatives have become champions of government spending on welfare.

Actually, we would rather see the money being wasted on welfare for the insurance companies, aka Obamacare, being spent on creating jobs. The US is losing manufacturing jobs at an alarming rate and Obama is just letting them go. Make the US more friendly to industry and the jobs will come, good jobs. Jobs will get people off the government teat, not artificially raising the minimum wage.

Well they had that chance with the president's jobs bill but they refuse to spend good money on a pretty good idea in the infrastructure bank, But like they always do since he has been elected was to simply vote no even with a good plan.

Really? how so? I mean the 2009 bill was nearly a trillion in spending, The jobs bill was less than 80 billion.

But aside the marked lower amount of spending, what contents of the jobs bill did you feel wasn't good?

We just spent $1 Trillion in Agriculture States welfare for the South and Mid west Farmers and there is guaranteed to be no jobs created with those hand outs. That amounts to Civil War reparations.

You've been on vacation for most of your life, AuDumbo.

PS: Taking a few hours to play golf on a Saturday isn't a vacation, for those of us who work, it's a day off.

Do you think the irony is lost on conservatives!?

You should be more concerned about one of those students you service back in the mop closet turning your azz in, SpoogeSponge, where you have your head you are going to see the camera phone and there is more than enough DNA on the floor to convict.
