No, we are not going to subsidize healthy people. They can take 2 jobs, or get an education, or be trained for a job that pays their standard of living. This is insane. Every time I think the Democrats cannot find another reason to pick the pockets of the productive people in America, damned if they don't find another group to pay off for their votes.

Correction, the Senate went on vacation........not the House. Of course Reid has been on vacation setting on bills for three years now........of course at Obama's orders.

They can't. That's the fact of the matter. They are like dumb fish caught in gill nets and know they are dying, and can't do anything about it.

The article stated after housing and taxes they had $77 a week to spend and they could not live on that. All I can say is no wonder our country is in debt if they dont know how to Stretch out $77 a week to live off. I could and will gladly tell anyone who has to how to survive and budget that.
I pay a Mexican guy $40 to mow my lawn, which takes him about an hour to complete. That's about how much an American working at McDonalds takes home after taxes for an entire shift. The problem is that Gen-Y Americans are dumb as dirt and lazier than a opposum.

If they think that the minimum wage is bad, they should try living on social security.

Doesn't social security pay around $1,000-$1,200/month??

Well, these guys who tried to live on minimum wage won't have to worry.

They have their government funded retirement plans when they retire.

You are right, why should we pay for those healthy workers whose companies do not pay them a living wage?

Let's see-
The dollar inflated from $1.00 to $1.11 - that's 11% inflation.
What is that - an omen?
Over 6 years
Thats not extraordinary inflation, nor is it 2% inflation per year. Are you stating other wise, again? Stop defending the indefensible. You were parroting nonsence from your propaganda source.

Who processes this raw material you speak of? Who packages it and ships it to the manufacturer? Who picks up this material and delivers it? Who unpacks the material and prepares it for production?
All and any costs get charged indirectly to the consumer. We all pay for these increased costs when we purchase a product or service. When you increase minimum wage, we pay for it. When you tax those big evil companies, we pay for it. When you force new expensive EPA regulations on a company, we pay for it.
We consumers pay for everything, it's just that it's not itemized on the product you buy.
No, wages arent a factor in the cost of raw material. What is the labor cost of a tree?

I'd call a 20% food cost increase in less than 3 years inflationary.

In 6 years that would be a 40% increase in food costs.

Keep selling your ghost stories to people who actually pay for their food.

I bet you stuff your face on mom and dad's dime.

Posse Comituta was enached to remove Federal Troops from the states ending reconstruction in 1878. Thats why Perry could not direct them to enforce the law.

The Labor Cost of A Tree

>buy the land the tree grows on

>irrigation

>trimming and pest control

I know my trees are damn expensive to keep healthy.

If I don't it costs $600 to get it removed before a limb goes through my roof or lands on a kid.

Well since according to Liberals the economy is doing so well, no one should be working at minimun wage jobs, they should quit and find a better paying job since there are now so many Jobs out there begging for workers.
