Obama is making everybody pay, not just the rich.

I busted my ass for 25 years and my back is damaged.

I simply had to retire because I couldn't do the job anymore.

But it is the only thing I know how to do.

I'm an ex postal employee.

Trust me, Obama is killing us with everything going up.

The working man is not doing better under Obama.

Taxing the rich is another way of saying tax everyone.

That is the truth, Jim.

You live in Maine.

Try New York state is see how fast your money disappears.

I feel it on my pocketbook and I blame Obama's policies.

America is full of the "Blame [insert president's name here]" brigade, too lazy to get up off their asses and get on with life. It's always the government's fault. Or society's. Blah blah blah.
And, as has already been pointed out, if Obama was really as hopeless as you say, he wouldn't have been re-elected.
But he was.
George W Bush got pounded for the war in the middle east.

However, blaming him for Obama just doesn't cut it.

Ronald Reagan turned it completely around after Jimmy Carter.

And he did it in less than 4 years.

I'm sorry, but Obama is proving to be way worse than Carter.

Obama was reelected because he kept fairly quiet in his first term.

Now, he is really going to go to town.

He is a socialist, which I figured out a while ago.

It is not the American way.

I have nothing against Obama but his policies are not working.

<quoted text>
Clearly you, like most Americans, have absolutely no idea about how your own economy works. There is no correlation between raising the minimum wage and other prices going up.
But of course you'd rather let your poor and disadvantaged starve to death.
"Chip" ... is that referring to the one on your shoulder, perchance?
Clearly it is YOU that is daft about rising prices correlating to minimum wage increases. Publicly traded businesses must maintain a profit to attract capital. If their payroll costs increase, they have to make it up somewhere else.
Second, labor unions use minimum wage as their benchmark when they determine the minimum they're willing to negotiate down to during contract talks.
It must suck to be so clueless.

Correct.
But your pathetic US minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is clearly NOT enough.
No, it isn't and $9 won't be enough either, especially when the prices on everything else will go up as well.

What is the minimum wage in Australia?

<quoted text>People on welfare are not "motivated to do nothing". Who is going to be motivated to live on 400 dollars a month? It is not enough to rent the cheapest room in town, much less to pay for food, AND look for a job.
Many live in government subsidized housing so out of that $400 very little goes to rent.
Food is also subsidized.
How is it that so many on welfare have cars, multiple televisions, cell phones, Air Jordans, etc.?
Lee wrote:
The reason, I think, that people stay on welfare for a long time is because once you have been unemployed for months, or a year, or more, even years, you have a big gap in your work record. No one will hire you then. Once you get without references, you are dog meat.
That might be for some but that's not the rule.
Many start off on welfare after they've quit High School and started to have babies or engage in illegal activities. For those who do not engage in such activities, they try to get a job wherever they can. However, the lack of post-education leaves the door closed. Unless they have the motivation to change that, welfare provides a safety net that soon turns into a hammock.
Lee wrote:
The government gives employers benefits for hiring minorities, women, ex-cons, etc.
What benefits are that? If you mean that hiring people so the government doesn't breathe down your neck for not meeting quotas a benefit, you're right. Except that's no benefit.
Lee wrote:
The government needs to give them something for hiring people who's references have run out, or who have no other negatives but have just been unemployed for a long time.
How do companies benefit by hiring people incapable of doing the jobs that the companies are seeking to fill?
Lee wrote:
That gap in the work record is what is keeping people on welfare over the long periods.
No it's not.
Lee wrote:
It's not that they are living it up on the meager money that they get from welfare.
Maybe not living it up, but living too comfortably to want to leave the welfare rolls.

FORMER penal colony, wanker, do try to get your facts right.

PS - and we're the only country not to have gone into recession because of the GFC; we have socialised medicine and our minimum wage is increased regularly. We are the economic envy of the western world.

Ours is between %15.96 and $17.65 per hour, depending on what industry you're in.

Also, it should be pointed out that we don't tip here in Oz.

You could do worse.

Unfortunately, as soon as the Republicans hear about "socialised" medicine, they freak out.

And most Yanks who talk about socialism have no idea of what it actually is. The system works for medicine.

I could have a heart attack tomorrow here in Sydney, and all I'd have to pay for is the ambulance ride to hospital.

If I needed a triple bypass, it's FREE!

Oh, and I can have as much time off work as I needed to recover, as Aussie jobs are guaranteed by law to be saved for the patient upon their return.

The G20 and the UN have stated that ours is the best economy in the western world.

So yes, the US could definitely learn a lot from us economically.

But when you have a country with socialised everything, it leaves little for capital. What technological advances do we see from Australia?
How many more innovations were born in the US compared to Australia? Quote a few, butt nugget!
