Boehner told reporters Wednesday.“At a time when American people are asking,‘Where are the jobs?’ why would we want to make it harder for small employers to hire people.”
He added,“Our goal is to get people on that ladder and help them climb that ladder so they can live the American dream. And a lot of people who are being paid the minimum wage, are being paid that because they come to the workforce with no skills, and this makes it harder for them to acquire the skills they need in order to climb that ladder successfully.”
I'd like to sit down with this one across the table, and give him a CLUE card....to share with the REST of the bonerheads, that say SUCH IDIOTIC things sometimes.
No matter the label DUHm label.
Can you be a little more clear?

Imagine an enterprising young kid running 51 Lemonade Stands in his area. Obamacare and other disincentives like "You didn't build that!" would force the price of Lemonade to be $30 per glass.

Bye, Bye Lemonade. Bye, Bye government revenue.

...and then he'll give them all a free cellphone and promise them all a subsidized college education.

Meanwhile, the Lawn Mowing, Snow Shoveling and Leaf Raking enterprises in the same area would be funding those free cellphones and subsidized college education...until they figured out they're being taken for fools.

The Boy Messiah is once again purchasing political support using other people's money. He's ordering businesses to raise wages while he simultaneously sticks them with ObamaCost up the kazoo and raises taxes, to boot.

When too many dollars chase to few goods, the dollar's value plummets. Let's give everybody a 1000% raise so we can stimulate the economy all to Hell, brutha!

Your reality is just as artificial as the Boy Messiah's handshake.

Like inflation. If they CAPPED inflation on ALL tangible goods, so that the wage service sectors would balance out better..that would NOT happen.
So let's see..looking backards a bit...NOPE, NOT believing that BS.

Let the bleak times roll

The Washington Posr

By Dana Milbank, Published: February 12

There is something entirely appropriate about holding the State of the Union address on the same day as Mardi Gras.

One is a display of wretched excess, when giddy and rowdy participants give in to reckless and irresponsible behavior.

The other is a street festival in New Orleans.

There is, thankfully, less nudity in the House chamber for the president’s annual address, and (slightly) less inebriation. But what occurs beneath the Capitol Dome is as debauched as anything on Bourbon Street.

The State of the Union ritual is by now familiar to most Americans. President Obama leads the Democratic side of the chamber to a series of standing ovations for proposals that everybody knows won’t become law. Republicans show their seriousness of purpose by smirking or making stony faces — and by inviting as guests to the speech people such as rocker Ted Nugent, who has called the president a “piece of [excrement]” who should “suck on my machine gun.”

But this spectacle, unlike the one in Louisiana, is not all harmless fun. Obama made clear that he is not entertaining serious spending cuts or major entitlement reforms. Republicans, in their responses, repeated that they are not budging on taxes. The hard choices will have to wait for another day.

The standoff gives new meaning to Fat Tuesday: The nation’s finances are a mess, but — what the heck?— let’s have another round. No wonder a new Washington Post poll found that 56 percent of Americans have a dim view of the country’s political system.

Early in his address, Obama pronounced himself “more than halfway towards the goal of $4 trillion in deficit reduction that economists say we need to stabilize our finances.” He blithely proclaimed that the rest of the job could be done by making “modest reforms” to Medicare and “getting rid of tax loopholes and deductions for the well-off.”

He didn’t mention that this would leave the country with a historically high debt level — and would be but a temporary fix before health-care costs explode in a decade. Departing from his prepared text, Obama challenged the idea that “deficit reduction is a big emergency, justifying making cuts in Social Security.”

And by THEY he meant government at all levels. Perot actually knew who THEY were___as do I because my career, as do the careers of millions of others, exists only to satisfy government regulations.
IMO every new law proposed should be attached to the repeal of an existing law.
Concur. That keeps the field level, IMO....

Oh look! It's Mrs. Buzzkill! But, to be fair, when you use the word,'nation,' you're not referring to "the people," you're referring to "the business," which isn't what a 'nation' is, dear. Let's revisit the Garden of Eden analogy, shall we? And, imagine if you will god's words as 'regulations,' literally "over-regulation." Surely, Adam and Eve would agree that the garden was over-regulated. But what would've been the result of de-regulation? That's right, the first pussy-farts. And where would "the nation" be if whenever someone mentioned the word 'pussy-fart' mom got that far-away look in her eye and excused herself to go to the bathroom? I ask you?
A "nation" is not an economic term, it describes a place and it's people, unfortunately. If you'd like to put in for special compensation to allow you to form a sort of "shadow nation" based on selling shit you bought from china please submit the forms in triplicate to your nearest Confabulation of Assholes Bent on Destruction Hall and Shoe Emporium. And good luck with that.
Now, be quiet, I'm mating.
I'd say it's about time of year when locusts do that.... Good luck!

Be specific. You appear to be another nitwit who just trots out talking points, without a clue as to what you're talking about.
In that, you're just another right wing moron parroting the lies of the GOP.
Now that you've offered your extremely vague opinion about regulations, please point to specific regulations that you feel inhibit business and should be removed.
Health regulations??
Safety regulations??
Environmental regulations??
Be specific, stop talking through your butt.

It is unclear from news reports whose SWAT team set the fire that toasted the chocolate marshmallow.
Throughout this incident, the LAPD has been operating outside their jurisdiction, as witnessed by their attempted murder of two newspaper delivery women in Torrance.
Question: Who gets the reward?
There will be no reward. It was for capture and conviction.
