The country as a whole is onto you, finally. ____________ What does the amount an executive gets paid have to do with raising the minimum wage puppy? If the minimum wage goes up then CostOfLiving goes up, income taxes then go up because the person is making more money & so they are left with ___LESS__ money in their pockets in the end. This means more people end up not being able to make ends meet & therefore end up in the "safety nets". However this is what you progressives want so more people are dependent on government largess. You know it, we know it. Just admit it. You can you know.

In an op-ed for USA Today, Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) says that a $9 per hour minimum wage is not enough. He says, “While I was heartened to hear President Obama make the minimum wage a centerpiece of his State of the Union Address, I believe that his proposal of $9 per hour does not go far enough to ensure that working families can make ends meet.”

But might I ask you Mr. Harkin how the small business owners that employ these minimum wage workers will afford more than $9 an hour? What now small business owners aren’t suffering in...
