    I prefer to think of it as tough love, but looter works I suppose.

    No it's a serious flaw. Look how little the right respects Biden for his frequent gaffs.

    Sorry the tape doesn't lie. You lose.

    If there is one thing that I am certain of, those rich conservatives are evolution-resistant bacteria

    I am not conservative so you may be right when it comes to the bible thumpers. but Progressives mainly try to justify their envy and excuse their failures by pretending their solutions are actually designed to help society rather than salve the butt hurt they experience

    I didn't say you were a conservative--personal attacks are against the rules.

    Mitt Romney, vowing a campaign to “end the scourge of poverty” if he runs for president a third time, has backed raising the minimum wage over the wishes of congressional leaders.

    Similarly, Jeb Bush’s new “super PAC,” announced with the fanfare of a presidential declaration, proclaimed, “While the last eight years have been pretty good ones for top earners, they’ve been a lost decade for the rest of America.”
    stupid. you want to attract voters come up with something better. give companies additional tax deductions for higher wage increases.
    give them a reason to pay people more and they will take it.

    it doesn't cost anything in fact it makes more money as people earn more they pay more tax.
    come up with something different and innovative rather than trying to copy the current meme.
