But I am glad that you just made my point. It's rediculous to increase welfare.
And you are accusing me of being a progressive/socialist, yet it's mostly conservatives and libertarians who are arguing that wages should be low and that we should have lots of welfare to make low wage workers comfortable in their poverty, at the expense of those of us who make decent wages.
Id like to see us eliminate welfare AND the minimum wage. That would actually kick start the economy about as much as eliminating the corporate tax. Then people would actually have to try instead of breezing through life.
Name ONE conservative who said we should have "lots a welfare"?? Im certainly not saying that. What ****ing RIDICULOUS assertion by you.
I'd rather raise the minimum wage, and have employers foot the bill for higher wages, instead of laying at the feet of taxpayers and subsidize employer low-pay.

I was HAPPY AS **** to get that part time job paying $15 an hour....because I know if I worked my ass off I would benefit from it, and I have....its too bad these liberal sycophants cant take that same mindset and take their min. wage job and through hard work and effort turn it into a $15 an hour supervisor/management job...the people who actually DESERVE a raise.
