anybody else remember the info that came out and said that all welfare bennies combined equaled $10.00 per hour?"Tonight, lets declare that in the wealthiest nation on Earth, no one who works full-time should have to live in poverty, and raise the federal minimum wage to $9.00 an hour. This single step would raise the incomes of millions of working families. It could mean the difference between groceries or the food bank; rent or eviction; scraping by or finally getting ahead."
So, let's see...roughly a dollar per hour more depending on where you live (or $40 more per week BEFORE TAXES) "could mean the difference between groceries or the food bank; rent or eviction; scraping by or finally getting ahead?"
why not make the min wage for WORKING citizens be $10.01 p/hr... at least 1 cent MORE than doing NOTHING?
I also found it 'misleading' that the 'smartest Pres EVER' thinks that a family of four (or more) is to be supported by a SINGLE, MIN WAGE EARNER!
if the average voter is NOT being fed a consistent diet of BS and out right LIES, by BOTH maj Parties, why DO they keep voting for the same bullshitters and LIARS?
I was glad to finally see the father of the recently killed innocent girl in Chicago... I was wondering where HE was in the earlier news videos. maybe if this Pres had made fatherly responsibilities a PRIOROTY from Day One, this girl would STILL be alive?
then, again, he MAY not of gotten re-elected... ask Bill Cosby what kind of reaction he got to speaking out on the same subject.
oops! there's that 'conservative' streak showing out, again.:)
or, maybe the Pres was just being RACIST by making that comment?
what say the resident 'race' experts here?
hurry, hurry, hurry...
