/They have what is called a marriage of convenience and has been such from the time Bill entered politics. Divorce is a big negative for any politician.. How can you define their relation today as a marriage when they are living apart and appear together only when there is a political function.
almost all new small start up businesses. Remember along with the MW an employer has almost another $4/hr in benefits/taxes. For an employer to have an employee the employee must produce over $14 of goods and services and in most small businesses it is about a year before they are at the break even point much less make a profit. MO all of these people that are going to be unemployed by the ACA and Obama and his advisors say they can now go into business on their own. This administration is dreaming.
In MO we will be having very very few new small businesses in this country. An employee must generate about $125/day just to pay his salary.
The small McDonald's in the neighbor hood has about 10 full time employees, have you thought how much prices will have to go up to pay the new wage rate? Think a little.
new poor and near poor will this created? We know for a fact everyone that will be earning the new MW will be the new poor and those earning up to about $15/hr will be the new near poor. (There wages will not go up) Gov't welfare laws dictate the poverty guidelines and poverty is when you work for MW. The family of 3 or more and the breadwinner is earning the new MW they will qualify for welfare and large families earning more than 15 will qualify for welfare..
My heart really cries for those that are on fixed incomes or those that only receive SS, the average SS check is about $1,100/mo. BO is mandating MW be increased about 40%, but SS increases about 1 1/2% and Medicare increase takes that. I believe, maybe this administration wants seniors to die off faster. The ACA I understand has put the hurt on "Medicare Advantage". Check it out.
This president is rapidly turning the country into a welfare state. This is just m. o.
non gov't people have never asked, "Why do gov't employees pay taxes"? If you can really think the answer will surprise and shock you. Now think real hard.
food; commodities and mfg. These 3 groups create almost 100% of an economies wealth, therefore they are the true job creators. All the jobs can be tied to this wealth. Gov't creates absolutely no wealth. Gov't is a total bleeder of the economy. The only dollar they have to spend is the one they take from some one......
Union in the private sector I do not condemn, fine. Gov't in the private sector I DO condemn. I believe as FDR, no union in the gov't, it's a disaster.
Gov't has no idea what a private company can pay. I like what my Father, a very strong union man, always on some committee, used to tell me, "If you don't like the company or what the company pays, quit and get another job".
To answer your question, I looked at an Impala and a Camero and I compared them to what I wanted. Neither of these satisfied my wants, MSRP plus addons- both were in excess of 10k of what I paid for my KIA. I have tried explaining this to another idiot that the buyer makes the comparison and buys what he wants. This #$%$ of advertising, engine size, 2 door, 5 door, mpg, sun roof etc has nothing to do with my comparison. My comparison is what counts and I decided a KIA was the best buy, looks, price and what I wanted
That idiot could not understand this.
I remember an associate of mine that was is the same situation: He told his wife, "You can't ride the furniture". He bought a convertible. The last I heard of him he relocated to FLA and supposedly won the lottery in FLA, 19 million about 25 years ago..
Justum, Where I come from only idiots go out and buy what someone else likes and buys. I compared the $54,990 Camaro, the $38k Impala and the $48k Caddy and I didn't like any of them, I even didn't like the Buick, it sounded like a tin can. From your price I saved $32k not 10K when I didn't buy the Camaro. You belong in another world, a real sucker for advertising.
I'm not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but I do have the ability to think a little.
Today the gov't uses the MW at $7.25/hr and family size to determine poverty and tomorrow the gov't raises the MW to $10.10, this will be the new poverty guide line. What this tells me is all of the people that were between the 7.25 and the new MW of 10.10 are now the new poor.
Now those people that were earning over the new MW of 10.10 are NOT going to get a raise so they are now going to be very close to poverty. This new MW will raise the cost of all goods and services and those on fixed incomes will be driven deeper into poverty..
Now, you think a little. The individual that had been making say 14/hr was way above poverty earning double the MW but Obama pushed him way back and he is now very close to poverty.
How the president and his advisors can believe screwing around with wages is good for the country is beyond me. MO.
The number of Americans on some kind of gov't dole is very near 50%. These people all follow the advice of an office manager I once had, he is now long dead, but his advice was always vote your pocket book.
For those of you that do not understand what he meant, "Vote for the politician that will give you more".
Think about it, people on the dole are not stupid. They do and always will vote for the politician that promises to increase their dole.
If you remember 5 years ago, this is what Obama did. "A shoe in". MO
OK. Lie never. I looked at the 2013 Impala and the Camaro, I bought an Optima. Both Chevrolets I looked at and considered cost more than 10k than the KIA. I compared them and I liked the KIA much better. You may like the Chevrolet better, that is your choice. To date I am 100% satisfied and I still believe I made a better deal. For you being uncouth you owe me an apology.
I do own a Monte Carlo and recently sold my Silverado if that makes you feel any better.
Think now. MW goes to $10.10/hour. At 7.25 you are poverty, eligible for welfare; raise MW to 10.10 this is the new point for poverty. Welfare determines eligibility based on MW and family size. At 10.10/hour and family size almost all of these people will be eligible for welfare. Welfare laws will be adjusted almost immediately to compensate for this change in income. Raising MW will CREATE MORE POOR PEOPLE.
Seniors on fixed income will be the biggest group hurt immediately by the rapid increase in the cost of all goods and services. Sorry 'Old Folks" , but I think these politicians want to get rid of you as fast as they can. I guess you know they are really screwing up your 'medicare advantage'. This ac will also help get rid of you faster. MO.
There is not and has never been any evidence that MW increases jobs. Using just a little common sense, when wages go up, the cost of all goods and services goes up and jobs are lost.
Look at service stations et al-higher wages has turned all stations into self service-much cheaper that attendants. GM-robots to paint, robots to weld; coal industry-mechanization and on and on and on.
Gov't just has you brain washed.
1935 even the Supreme Court judges said MW was legal but it is not smart. 80 years later and idiots still do not believe it. MO.
Last year GM said that it would cost about $1.50/day to keep the batteries recharged. This is $45/month.
He said that MW must go up to give low income people more money to spend. I can't believe this leader that claims to have gone to college and even received a Law degree would make such an uneducated statement. Every one knows when MW goes up, the cost of all goods and services goes up, ECON 101... More money to spend but you will buy less.
It usually takes about 6 to 9 months for all of the costs to go up to their new level after MW is raised.
More money to spend, yes, but you will buy less. MO.
