Re: Minimum wage now $9 an hour!!!!
Okay I will make a prediction, you heard it here first.

In a couple years, maybe the end of Obama's presidency or the next POTUS, the fed will issue a denomination-less bill maybe an Obama Buck.

That is a bill that has no face value, but some text or mumbo jumbo that states you must check the official government website to find the value of the bill at that particular moment in time. You want to know how much the bill is worth, you get on line and it says $1,000,0000. The next day, it says the bill is worth $2,000,000.

You heard it here first.

Re: Minimum wage now $9 an hour!!!!
I'm not an Obama supporter but it is a shame that so many companies pay as low as they do. Does a McDouble really need to be $1 or would it be better if it cost $1.50 and the workers actually made enough money to survive?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18996623


It doesn't change anything because prices inflate across the board....so the worker is basically even Steven with the only capital being made are political ones for Obama....
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33472592


I understand price inflation, but raising the minimum wage is not the only pressure up or down on price inflation. If your point was a hard and fast rule then it would essentially be saying that there HAS to be the amount of poverty that there currently is.

1) This ain't going to pass the House. Republicans won't vote for it.

2) Obama knows it is going to fail but is going to use it in the Congressional elections in two years with the "they don't care about you" garbage.

Everything he does...or proposes...is for the sole purpose of getting the ignorant to put Pelosi back into power so they can control all the levers and completely change all the rules in his last two years.

Uh, well, hmmm....

"Vote for me!" then, I guess...

I'll eliminate the minimum wage, either flatten or eliminate income taxes (there's that whole "repealing an amendment" thing that might be a bit taxing, pun intended)

What else...

Oh yeah - EPA... GONE!
NEA - Gone!
The other NEA - also gone!
"Wickard v. Filburn" - I'd let the Supremes know their formers' were about as wrong as wrong gets, give a SOTU on what the Founders meant (and quoting them to prove it), and Executive-Order it retried or simply revoked.

What else... EPA's former establishments - burned, bulldozed and salted...

Oh and OSHA - hammered into a tiny frightened shell of it's former self...

The whole "minimum wage" thing wouldn't be the epic "first thing" I'd do, but it would be as "first day"-ish as I could manage.
