    It isn't. Guaranteeing a "living wage" (whatever that means) for work that isn't worth a living wage is a welfare scheme. The money to artificially boost wages for low-value work has to come from somewhere. If a person whose labor is worth $8/hr is getting paid $20 because of some government program, that's essentially a welfare scheme. A government intrusion into the marketplace for the purposes of raising everyone's welfare. Sounds great, as long as you ignore the cost.

    People have only 3 choices for survival:

    *Working for a living

    *Taxpayer supported Welfare assistance

    *Crime

    Which do you prefer?
    I personally prefer working for a living, but that doesn't mean any work that anyone does is necessarily worth some minimum wage that you have in your mind.

    So when is Harry Reid going to bring that budget up for a vote?

    We spend more on the military than at any time in our past, almost as much of the rest of the world combined, and have been doing so for the last decade.
    Romney has stated he wants to spend more than Obama on the military.
    Obama just published a budget and it was presented to the Senate Finance Committee yesterday.

    So much for your "facts", and your "alternative" to Obama.

    You really believe the obama rhetoric don't you? Now are you going to demand that Harry Reid bring the budget up for a vote?

    NO ONE IS SUGGESTING $20 AN HOUR.

    We are talking about a a couple more bucks an hour for the full time manual labor jobs that exist so that a person can have subsistence to survive without taxpayer assistance.

    The only other options are welfare or crime. I prefer someone working for a living, but that's just me........................

    Again you avoid the facts I stated, and, you assume I would vote for Romney.

    LOL,, ok, let me know when it is introduced to the Senate. What is going to happen when it is proven that all in that budget does nothing but increase the debt more and does nothing to reign in the deficit?
