Following the Current Administration for the Official 4 year Term of 1,461 days and focusing on the use of Executive Orders, Presidential Memorandum and Executive Direction by the sitting President of the United States.
In the Weekly Republican Address for March 8th 2014 - Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio outlines a Senate Republican Jobs for America plan designed to bring back opportunity, spark an economic recovery and make it possible again for every citizen to have a shot at the American Dream. President Obama and congressional Democrats have tried to tax, spend and regulate American prosperity, says Portman, but those ideas haven't worked. "We know we can do better, and it starts by putting our trust back in the American people," says Portman, who calls for reforming the corporate tax code, ratifying free trade agreements and approving construction of the Keystone pipeline, among other ideas.
President Obama used this weeks internet address to attempt to increase the momentum across the country to push Congress to increase the minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10. President Obama has already signed Executive Order 13658, raising the minimum wage for people working under new federal contracts to $10.10. Governors across the country are falling in line and working to raise their states’ minimum wages.
If you look at the bigger picture, the minimum wage increasing to $10.10 will cause small and large business to increase the rates at which merchandise and goods are sold. Gas will move well above $5 a gallon leaving the $3.50 per gallon mark far behind. Other commodity goods will increase inline with the pay rate increase causing a deeper slide into poverty for the average American working class family.
Lets hear what you are thinking - is raising the minimum wage the right thing to do for American prosperity or is this a nail in the coffin of the middle class and Agenda 21 into reality
