    More money to spend and more taxes for the gov't

    Just heard several politicians addressing the issue of raising the MW. One want $9/hour, the other wants $22/hour. Both want the MW raised so people would have more money to spend and the gov't could collect more taxes. What idiots.
    If the goal of MW is for more money to spend and more money for the gov't from taxes, I suggest that MW be raised to $1,000/hour. This makes more sense. Everyone would be rich. A lot of money to spend. Gov't would collect zillions in taxes. There would only be a few elderly that are on fixed income that this would hurt, but gov't would put them on food stamps...
    Think about it... What an easy solution to the country's problems. Idiots should stop fa-ting around raising the MW a few pennies at a time. Just jack it up to the point where it makes sense.
