Republicans 2016 – ‘Jeb Bush Wants To Fight Inequality But Also Eliminate The Minimum Wage’

minimum wage7

The myth that it’s only teenagers and high school drop outs that get paid minimum wage.

‘At an event in South Carolina on Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush was asked whether he thinks the country should raise the minimum wage or whether the wage should be left up to private companies’.

We need to leave it to the private sector,” he responded. “I think state minimum wages are fine. The federal government shouldn’t be doing this.” He went on, “The federal government doing this will make it harder and harder for the first rung of the ladder to be reached, particularly for young people, particularly for people that have less education.”

How Republicans Will Govern – ‘The House’s Newest Immigration Plan Is Comprehensive Mass Deportation’

self deportation

 

‘The House Judiciary Committee is taking up a bill this week that would make felons out of the vast majority of undocumented immigrants overnight’.

  • The bill would repeal the president’s November 20 immigration directives, which would give 5 million parents and DREAMers temporary legal protection and work authorization’.

‘Whereas the comprehensive reform plan passed by the Senate in 2013 would have put the 11 million unauthorized immigrants living in the country on a pathway to citizenship while making strategic investments in our border security and fixing our legal immigration system, this bill would, among other provisions’:

Turn the civil penalty of being in the country without authorization into a criminal one, making felons out of the vast majority of the undocumented population overnight. (Secs. 315 and 316)’.

Republicans Doing The People’s Work – ‘House GOP budget again repeals ObamaCare’

repeal obamacare1

‘The House budget unveiled Tuesday again includes a full repeal of ObamaCare’.

‘The 43-page proposal offered by House Budget Committee Chairman Tom Price (R-Ga.) would eliminate all mandates, taxes, regulations and subsidies under the healthcare law, which the committee says would save $2 trillion’.

“It is imperative that the president’s health care law be repealed so that we can start over and make targeted, common sense reforms,” the committee wrote in the budget proposal’.

WTF2

  • So you’ve had almost 6 years to think about common sense reforms………what are they?

‘Like Ryan’s budget, this year’s proposal does not lay out specific ways to replace ObamaCare, though the committee writes that its budget “calls for starting over with a patient-centered approach to health care reform.”

‘Details of those reforms are minimal in the document, though it does promise to increase competition and transparency’.

“All it takes is one good guy with a gun……” – ‘Whoops: Responsible Gun Owner ‘Accidentally’ Kills Wife While Cleaning Gun In The Kitchen’

A gun is manufactured for one reason and one reason only….to kill.

So why would anyone pick up a gun and NOT check to see if it is loaded?

‘A 67-year-old Washington man was arrested for negligent homicide on March 6, 2015’.

‘According to KOMO News, Gary Crandell called 911 at around 5 pm on Monday, telling dispatchers that he had been cleaning his gun in the kitchen, when it “accidentally discharged.” The bullet struck his wife in the chest, killing her’.

‘The minute you bring a gun into your home, risk of death goes up by an alarmingly high percentage’.

‘In fact, if you own a gun, the odds that someone in your home will die by its hand from suicide, homicide, or accidental injury is 22 times higher than for someone living in a home without guns’.

‘Study after study has shown that it does not matter what type of gun you own, how the gun is stored, or how “responsible” you believe you are’.

‘A man who smokes cigarettes is 22 times more likely to die from lung cancer as a man who does not smoke’.

‘Most people would not give their loved their ones cigarettes. Yet, far too many allow their children and family members to live in a home with guns, in spite of the evidence that doing so puts them at a much greater risk of death’.

The Day In Republican Land – ‘Son of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore arrested for drug possession, blames the media’

blame1

It’s interesting that the party of ‘personal responsibility’ alwaysd blames someone else……

Once Is Chance, Twice is Coincidence, Third Time Is A Pattern

‘This is Caleb Moore’s third arrest on drug charges’.

‘The 24-year-old son of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore was arrested on drug possession charges on Sunday, but according to the younger Moore, the charges are just a political scheme to further attack his father over gay marriage’.

“This is nothing more than a prime example of how media and crooked police officers and critics of my dad try to not only destroy his career for what he stands for but will go as far as trying to destroy his family,” Caleb Moore wrote on Facebook’.
