This is up there with with her promise of lower gas prices to below $2. The cake is a lie but there’s pie in the sky!

Actually expecting the wealthy to pay a fairly reasonable amount in taxes, no, lowering minimum wage, yes. Love it.

I could post facts and figures on the amount of people who are working right now and under the poverty line and are qualified for public assistance and food stamps. That is welfare. What this Queen of The 9th Dimension of Suspended Reality is suggesting is more welfare. But if they cut it, we also can expect to see…Just what? The only true thing said by her in this article posted is “I’m not married to anything”. I agree, she just revealed in a sentence a truth therapists should run with. She lives in her own world and it is not ours. If she makes it ours we are all F’d to midnight February 30th.

I’ve often thought that a global minimum wage would solve a lot of problems. But I always knew it would mean lowering the wages in the US by quite a bit, so I never took the idea seriously.

I have actually worked for minimum wage, starting when it was $1.93 an hour. The first time I ever got a raise, it was because the minimum wage was raised. I was going to get the raise anyway, because I had earned it, but when the minimum went up, that counted as the raise I had earned.

I wonder when or whether Mrs. Bachmann ever worked for minimum wage.

Because the way to help the American worker is to get them to accept a lower standard of living.

Ok….a president does not and cannot make changes to the minimum wage; this has to be passed by both houses of congress….then the president can sign the change into law. What makes Bachman think that she can just will this into being?

Well obviously because God told her so.

Sheesh, do I have to explain everything to you?? Please pay more attention from now on. //

Bachmann is an idiot.

That alone is reason enough no to vote for her.
