Job's Bill. How to pay for it: Obama has proposed: •A limit on itemized deductions and exemptions for individuals who earn over $200,000 and families earning over $250,000, a tax increase that would raise about $400 billion over 10 years, according to Lew. •A provision to treat carried interest -- the interest earned by investment fund managers -- as ordinary income, rather than taxing it at the capital gains rate. That would raise $18 billion, Lew said. •Scrapping various oil and gas tax provisions which raise $40 billion. All three ideas or versions of them were part of the budget plan Obama proposed in early 2009. A reporter reminded spokesman Lew that a Democratic-controlled House and Senate had chosen to not pass these measures in 2009 and 2010. “You had a Democratic House and a Democratic Senate and it went nowhere. So how are you going to get it done now with a Republican House?” he asked? Great question.

How about not having any wages at all for many more soon-to-be former employees? I understand this is starting in California McDonalds now.

If I pushed the buttons correctly on my calculator, you would need about 76 hours a week at that magic number $15 dollars on hour to get to $58,900.

So two people working fulltime at $15/hour would be good to go.

Employers are afraid to hire because they do not trust the president. They have no assurance he will not come up with some business wrecking scheme/tax/tariff like Obamacare.. He has stated over and over again he has no support for big business. The EPA is running rampant.. Small businesses didn't earn what they have. and on and on and on !!

OWO...you do bring up a great point about the cost of education. to me it is simply another way of financing ones future in much the same way you would finance anything else. simple return on investment. it really boils down to that. too many young people make bad decisions from the get-go with higher education preparation in both the educational and financial areas. one thing that i think is important for someone who decides to advance, irrespective of degree, is to have a marketable skill and be willing to relocate to an area of demand. soemtimes you have to go get IT as IT doesn't always go get you.

Well Absolem after an indoctrination in liberal arts university, they come out little lefties unwilling to work for less than they think they worth. No need to pay ones dues and work your way up through effort, they want the ceo job day one.

OWO...good point...abolish colleges and universities. lack of motivation can be taught real cheap.

Well lets see there are jobs out there but very few pay a living wage so if you're coming out of college owing 100,000$ and the jobs available only pay you 30,000$ a year (if your lucky) wheres the motivation ?
