Obama´s minimum wage hike will cost
500,000 JOBS by the end of 2016,
claims bombshell official report

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/8/2014 12:50:41 PM

The White House may have to scrap its plans to aggressively promote a 40 percent national minimum wage hike now that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office found that the move would likely cost the U.S. 500,000 jobs by the second half of 2016. [Snip] The White House didn´t answer questions about whether that trade-off is acceptable to President Obama, but Senate Democrats have pushed hard for legislation that would implement his goal of driving the minimum wage far above its current $7.25 level. But it quickly scheduled an afternoon conference call for reporters with Council of Economic Advisers Chairman Jason Furman, and

Who didn´t already know this? It happens every time the left hikes the minimum wage. Does anyone doubt that zippy already knew? Does anyone think he cares?

And you know who bears the brunt of this. Minority teenagers. You might as well re-label any talk of hiking the minimum wages as the War on Black Teenagers.

It may cost 500,000 existing jobs. But it will clearly stop 2 or 3 times that many new jobs from being created.

And the people who will be hurt the most are the teenagers, low-education workers, and minorities, who tend to hold most of those minimum wage jobs.

Yet, those are the same voters who gave us 8 years of the Øvomit reign of terror. So it´s hard to feel all that sorry for the Demon-rat´s victims in this. They got exactly what they voted for!!!

Sometimes I wonder why the Obammunist has not yet flown a drone into the CBO offices. Sometimes they tell the truth, and the dictator can´t have that coming from inside his regime.

Old story.
The assumption that only teens get min. wage is false Fact is the majority of min. wage earners average age is 35.
States that have increased min. wage have shown an increase of employment, not a decrease. Just what do those higher income peeps do with that extra cash? They SPEND it of course, which creates more profit, and yes, jobs.

That said, have it your way. If raising min. wage is such a job killer, then it stands to reason the lowering same would create jobs.

Nice try #8, you must get your facts from the Dept of Labor. A good percentage of the minimum wage jobs are women over 20 who are usually working part time. They aren´t the sole source of income in their families and they don´t live in poverty. But a good percentage are teens. It´s a first job. Raising the wage creates no new jobs because to put the extra money into the minimum wage earner´s hands you have to take it from the customer. That customer would have spent that money too. Raising the minimum wage is a wealth transfer that has no net positive effect on the economy. It´s sole effect is to prevent teens from getting jobs.

This will affect the people currently making more than the current $7.50 (or whatever) and the new minimum. Their employers will be asking themselves if they really need these people of can they get by without them.
Last month we lost 500,000 full time jobs and created 790,000 part time jobs - hence the 290,000 "new" jobs. Hiking the minimum wage will do the same thing.

#12
The plague we have of part-time creation has been in existence long before the dream of ACA was even an idea.

The food industry lobby, which has the most part time jobs and is fighting this legislation won´t change on hours worked.

Those making $10hr now? Heck, they need a raise too. Wages have not kept up with inflation or the cost of living for the last 15 years. And the fears of the $10 burger or exobornate inflation due to increased labor costs is unfounded.

In the 13 States that have increased min. wage also show more, not less employment numbers.

But go ahead and believe the Food lobby BS to suppress wages. CEOs need a bigger bonus.

Ebola outbreak: UK urges decisive
action at London forum
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 10/2/2014 3:39:37 PM     Post Reply
The UK has called for urgent decisive action from the international community to deal with the growing Ebola epidemic in West Africa. Speaking at a conference in London co-hosted with Sierra Leone, UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond called for more financial aid, doctors and nurses. British nurse William Pooley, who contracted Ebola in Sierra Leone, made an emotional appeal for more action. Leading charity Save the Children earlier warned that Ebola was spreading at a "terrifying rate", with the number of new recorded cases doubling every few weeks. It said that a rate of five new Ebola cases an hour

A doctor checked in at Atlanta airport in protective goggles, gloves, boots and overalls in a bitter protest at the CDC for ´sugar-coating´ the true scale of Ebola in the US. Gil Mobley said he was left horrified yesterday when he was allowed to fly from Guatemala to Atlanta with no interrogation or checks on his equipment. Enraged, the microbiologist and emergency trauma physician boarded his next flight from Atlanta International Airport - minutes from the center´s headquarters - wearing a protective white jumpsuit branded with the words ´CDC is lying!´ It comes two days after a man in Texas

While it may reject Israel’s existence, Hamas certainly agrees with Prime MInister Binyamin Netanyahu--and disagrees with the US State Department--that its “ultimate goal” is to establish an “Islamic state” (caliphate) over what it sees as the “occupied lands of Palestine.” In short, while the US disputes PM Netanyahu’s statement that “Hamas is ISIS, and ISIS is Hamas”--Hamas itself does not. China Weekly reported that, on Tuesday, senior Hamas leader Mahmoud al-Zahar said in a ceremony to honor police officers killed in the latest Gaza operation that "we don´t want to establish an Islamic emirate in Gaza; we want an Islamic state in

It appears an act of compassion led Thomas Eric Duncan to contract Ebola, and become the first patient diagnosed with the deadly disease on U.S. soil. Just four days before he boarded a plane bound for Dallas, Texas, Duncan helped carry his landlord´s convulsing pregnant daughter to a Liberian clinic to be treated for Ebola, the New York Times reports. The woman, named by The Times as 19-year-old Marthalene Williams died the next day, after being turned away from the overcrowded hospital that didn´t have room for her. The landlord´s son and three neighbors who came in contact with the

What do you suppose is the biggest item in the budget of a working household? The mortgage? The car? The utility bills? Nope. Far greater than any of these--greater, indeed, than all of them combined--is the tax bill. Because taxation is generally deducted at source, we often fail to realise how much we’re paying. For most people, the only time when they must, so to speak, write a cheque to the taxman is when they pay council tax--which duly elicits disproportionate resentment. Consider the figures above. They make a nonsense of Labour’s “cost of living” campaign, because the party plans to

The United States on Wednesday authorized a $1.75 billion arms deal for Saudi Arabia. The deal will allow the Saudis to upgrade their stock of Patriot air defense missiles, replacing them with PAC-3 missiles. The missiles will be supplied by Lockheed Martin and Raytheon, the State Department said. Congress has 30 days to block the sale, but a State Department spokesperson said that this was unlikely. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency, which is in charge of foreign weapons sales, said the deal would help the Saudis to better defend themselves, replacing earlier-stage Patriots which are now obsolete and suffer from

United Airlines is scrambling to alert the hundreds of passengers who shared twi planes with the first Ebola patient on U.S. soil. [Snip] U.S. officials had previously refused to provide details of his itinerary, claiming none of his fellow passengers were at risk because he was not showing symptoms at that time. Currently, patients are checked for fever - the first sign of a possible infection - before they are allowed to board flights leaving West African nations. However, once travelers gets past examiners in Liberia, Sierra Leon or Guinea, there are few barriers to them moving across the world.

Up to 18 people in America, including five children, may have been exposed to Ebola after coming into direct contact with the first patient to be diagnosed with the deadly disease on US soil. Thomas Eric Duncan, who arrived in Dallas, Texas, from Liberia on Sept 20, was infectious for up to eight days and health officials are already examining a second potential case in someone close to him. They said the children who encountered Mr Duncan and who went to four different schools in Dallas were “priority number one” and would be closely observed for any symptoms over the

Uncharacteristically, I´m almost lost for words--or at least for critical words. David Cameron said pretty much everything I wanted him to say in his belter of a conference speech. [Snip] What this amounted to in effect was a picture of a social morality based on rewards for hard work, personal responsibility, pride in your achievements, and true fairness (which is to say, getting "something for something" rather than something for nothing). And, most important, the idea that permitting people to live in permanent dependency was not just a waste of money, but a waste of life.

Pentagon officials are finding it difficult determining how effective US airstrikes against ISIS in Iraq and Syria are because of ´significant gaps in intelligence´. Senior current and former US officials have told the Associated Press that American aircraft are running under less restrictive rules than those governing drone strikes in Pakistan and Yemen. Despite this, they are having difficulties determining the effectiveness of the bombing missions targeting Al-Qaeda and ISIS due the lack of intelligence assets on the ground. These assets identify targets before an airstrike and conduct an after action battle damage assessment.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman.

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

HOUSTON, Texas -- Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was found not guilty today by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. This is the highest appellate court in Texas for criminal cases and thus brings DeLay’s political persecution to an end. The court upheld the ruling last year from the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals. That decision tossed out the convictions on money laundering and conspiracy charges. At that time Justice Melissa Goodwin wrote “The fundamental problem with the state´s case was its failure to prove proceeds of criminal activity,” according to a September 19th report on Breitbart News.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — About a month from the 2014 midterm elections House Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was already predicting a sweep for her party in the 2016 election. Referring to Republicans, Pelosi said, "Their days are numbered. I know that in two years there will be a Democratic Congress and a Democratic President." Pelosi has publicly urged former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to run for president and said if Clinton does decide to run she would win. While she was clearly looking ahead the top House Democrat was careful not to concede the election this November. Pressed about the prediction she made
