If Obama's making minimum then we're paying him too much.

To Obama, minimum wage is a budget with no cap.

Why does Obama want to keep poor people poor? If he would just raise minimum wage to $25/hr it would help poor people 2 1/2 times more.

To President Obama and those folks who can do the math, folks earning minimum wage on a full time job can't make it with their bills, rent, etc. Period.

Make the GO congress men and GOP politicions nation wide work for what is now the minimum wage and I bet it goes up fast.

Make moost of GOP voters work for minimum wage and live in poverty why working real hard an watch wages go up fast.

You have these leather chair oak desk sitters making millions doing little t no work and they think the workers are over paid.

AND YES SITTING BEHIND ESK AND GOING TO MEETINGS IS NOT WORK...What CEO and front office types do for "work" is what working class people do to relax.

Gosh, maybe Obama should have taken the billions spent on vacations and golf and gave it to them. They are getting their minimum wage, free health care and an EBT card. Will you agree if they get ten dollars and hour they should lose the EBT card?

We are on the brink of a 3rd world war, and all President Obama can concentrate on is paying unskilled, untrained, uneducated people twice what their work is worth. This is nonsense. Where is Uncle Joe, we need him to take control of this weak kneed Government.

He's out trying to get Canadians to sign up for Obama care. They are still six and half million behind where they were supposed to be yesterday.

Maybe if there were jobs Obama promised for five years, they wouldn't have to live on minimum wage. Since you are a devout business owner yourself, I hope you are paying your people $25 an hour and paying a 100% of their healthcare.

Because $25 an hour is almost $10.10, as rounded up by liars.

But wouldn't your employees, and this is for the employees, do better if you paid them $25. The average salary in the US is $50K, why would any employer not pay their employees at least the average?

$10.10 proposed minimum wage.

Why do tea baggers have to lie so?

Is it because they haven't won an election recently and don't expect to win another?
