NOT ONE EXPERT ON RAISING THE MINIMUM WAGE HAS TOLD YOU THAT THE GOVERNMENT GETS A RAISE TOO. YOU TAXES. IF YOU ARE GOING TO HELP THE POOR AND THE MILITARY POOR DON'T TAX THE INCREASE ON ANYBODY. IT IS THE BUSINESS MAN WHO PAYS THE INCREASE PLUS SOCIAL SECURITY. THE COMMUNIST PRESIDENT GETS CREDIT AND PAYS NOTHING. ONLY CRUPES THE NEW TAXES. WHY WOULDN'T HE RAISE THE MIN WAGE? HE GETS VA TAX JUNKIES WINDFALL.
