There is plenty of good to go around. Corporations have it too nice, they don't pay enough taxes as is, so they should pay atleast $50/h for wage.
Once again the right offers not anything sensible but idiocy for the discussion.
Unable to understand why a *minimum wage* that has some balance makes sense, they throw out sarcastic calls - why not makke it a billion fo everyone?
Since $8 or $10/hour and a billlion for everyone are equally sensible? Nice contribution to the discussion.
Actually, it reflects the utter lack of any sensible view, an ignorance of the massive research done into what makes sense and is practical.
It's basically like a brain-damaged guy with a beer in his armchair yellling inocherent nonsense, not a discussin.
But it probably makes him feel better as he thinks he just 'proved' that since $50/hour isn't practical, he won the argument against the minimum wage.
It really raises the question what you do about voters who are so incompetetent as citizns, lacking values, information, and a variety of other attributes as citizens.
Why would you waste the time with a real response to such a person, who is the equivalent of someone who says 'you want a 55 mph speed limit? Fine make it a 1 MPH speed limit!'
You could sit there all day discussing the issues of 55 versus 65 versus 70 and the fuel consumption, safety issue, time lost and other facts, but you're talking to a loudmouth.
