Sparky, the deficit problem and in particular the revenue problem is an issue that comes from more than 12 years ago.

And if you were to make that argument you should have just said from 2000-2008, because that is the real issue. The current administration has been among the most frugal in spending in modern history and is still trying to find new ways to cut spending and future growth even more.

Obama has been more conservative than any Republican leadership in recent memory. Conservatives should be putting this guy on their shoulders and championing him, but they live in the Fox News, Drudge Report, Rush bubble so they think he has been spending out of control.

If anything we should be raising taxes more than making deep cuts to spending right now.

Yeah, yeah, yeah. MSNBC is on, run along, so you will know what to say tomorrow.

I rarely if ever watch any 24 hour news. MSNBC or otherwise. That data comes from the CBO and OMB. Not MSNBC.

The one thing that can be inferred from most if the posts in this thread.....

Either most of you did not take Economics or you failed it.

Supply and Demand dictates wages. Gov't intervention only makes it worse.

Yes, if only the government would get out of the picture we could go back to the good old days of the late 1800s, when times were great for the average worker

You just can't pay unskilled labor like skilled labor, it just won't work.

Say a person has worked his way up to $22 an hour at their job, and the new guy starts getting $22 an hour the next day, does the first persons pay go up?

If not, and both pays stay $22 an hour, that's really close to communism, no?

It's wage warfare....

My question is how come wages have not increased at a time of record profits and record salaries at the top?

no one is actually going to address this

here is the article i was referring too.

http://www.slate.com/blogs/moneybox/2013/03/08/left_s_big_mistake_about_real_wages_and_the_economy.html

To raise real wages across the economy rather than for some favored group of insiders, what you need to do is make things cheaper. And that generally entails an accumulated series of events that make selected groups of people's nominal incomes lower.
