    Minimum wage like you said, which I didn't disagree with, is a state issue. However, when wages become stagnant and the state government sits on their hands while their citizens suffer is a time for federal intervention.

    As I said earlier, I'm not a partisan and I put my fellow Americans before ANY labeling political ideology. Why can't you?
    No, what you do is think with your heart and not your brain. This country was founded on the basis of a small central govt. If your state govt is sitting on its hands aren't you closer to that govt. than the Federal Govt in D.C.? I would have thought 8 years of Democrat rule would have solved the problems in your state but as usual it didn't. I am sorry but we have local, state, and federal governments, figure out what they do or should be doing and stop trying to get a one size fits all federal program for the 50 independent states

    And no president created a single job. Not one. At least not outside of growing the government and government jobs.
    It isn't the wars that created the 17.5 trillion dollar debt it is Federal involvement in micromanagement of social issue. Defense is the responsibility of the Federal Govt. not social welfare. We were attacked in 9/11. Like far too many you have no understanding as to the federal govt. roles and responsibilities. The war in Iraq was authorized by Congress but again that is for another thread, not diversion from the Obama economic record.

    General rule of thumb when the government tells you something isn't going so well....

    It's either worse than they say, or better than they say, depending on what kind of response they want you to have.

    Occasionally they slip up and give out accurate information. But it is then almost invariably skewed or distorted in some way by the "news" media, so the chances of getting accurate information are virtually nonexistent.


    tl;dr it doesn't matter what the news says, believe what you will, since it's probably closer to the truth yet still too far away to even see it.

    goddamn I'm cynical tonight.

    Not supported by independent facts. Sorry.

    So you're more than willing to throw money down a rat hole. Wars. Nation building. But never for am American citizen.

    Didn't get it from. Just recognized that he's correct.
