While Republicans love to falsely claim that tax cuts for the wealthy pay for themselves through increased economic activity, in the case of increasing the minimum wage, it’s actually true.
If Democrats want to save democracy and work toward unity, they must remove the obstacle of the filibuster.
After Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed legislation giving 12 weeks of paid family leave and increasing the minimum wage throughout New York,
President Barack Obama commended Gov. Cuomo and the state of New York for supporting working families and then made sure to reiterate his call on Congress to raise the minimum wage.
As long as the wealthy continue benefitting from the President's economic recovery, Republicans will stay the austerity course that continues retarding growth despite one 4th quarter report that GDP ticked up to 3 percent.
Do you hear it? I do, it's the shrieks of horror by the House GOP, Boehner and Cantor! How dare the Democrats raise the pay of our lowest paid workers!
