I'm probably on Obama's naughty list because I'm an R.

So that's slavery? No wonder you think it wasn't that big of a deal.

Who determines the livable wage? While I agree there are many shady ceos sticking it to people how does higher taxes cause them to adjust wages so someone makes more?
It seems the wage thing is in the eye of the beholder as well as cost of living.
The main reason jobs in CA pay more is the costs/taxes to live there are crazy.
Its a tough pickle no doubt aout it.
Higher taxes want make them adjust wages. It will bring in more money for the gov so they stop printing so much. Only way we will see increased wages is with production and with a global market place we have little chance of that happening. As a small business owner I know with higher production comes more jobs and better wages. When those numbers fall off cuts have to be made. With Obama Care Big business is going to do what my business has done for years. Shift to more workers but use them only on a part time bases. The gov decided to make business owners foot the bill on Obama care and they will adjust even if the Gov can't.

lots of this current stuff reminds me of the AMT(i was not around when it came out btw). the goal, then, was tax the higher earners. sound familar?
look at the unintended consequences. year after year, middle income people get hit with it and every year congress puts a patch on it instead of totally fixing or abolishing it.
need more workers guys. not taxes.
