    How do jobs bills and minimum wage increases create jobs?

    Wrong. When those programs were created we had 12% in poverty, we now have 15% in poverty. The federal gov't now spends more money than it dare ask for via direct taxation. Only 3% of the workforce gets minimum wage, strive to join the 97%.

    Not everyone in the country should vote. Only the LEGAL CITIZENS !!
    The question is more important than the answer!

    No one is suggesting that non-citizens should get a vote.

    Should? The SC says we can't do anything to prevent it, though. Supreme Court Rules: States Cannot Prevent Illegal Aliens from Voting in U.S. Elections | Independent Journal Review

    I guess, according to some, rights should depend upon your possessions. I don't really know how anyone can be seriously considering this. We ALL pay taxes in one form or another.

    That's an interesting concept, and not without merit in light of the Modern Left's apparent position that responsibility should depend upon one's possessions.

    Whatever, we are all supposed to be equal in this country. Our government does not get to dole out rights to those who they think are "deserving." Its preposterous.

    Well... they do sometimes. They dole out the right to build a business with taxpayer funding, they dole out the right to opt out of healthcare. It's not without precedent.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
