Obama sotu

It is likely that Pres. Obama may make raising the minimum wage a top priority since it would have a direct impact on aiding those with the lowest incomes (and reducing the cost to the government and taxpayers for subsidizing those low wages of greedy corporations) and make for a better economy.

If you think the thinking and policies of the GOP are worse today than ever, imagine what bills Republicans in Congress might come up with in five or ten years.
