House passage is meaningless without the senate on board. McConnell won't even bring it to the floor.
15 an hour should start now, not at the end of 2025. 15 an hour in 2025 will be behind the time, people will need at least 20 an hour in 2025 to survive.
Tax breaks as incentives for corporate to hire new and allow higher wages for present workers is smoke and mirrors.
I would suggest lawmakers are out of touch with reality, when was the last time any of them pumped their own gas or grocery shopped?
The swamp has been replaced by slimeballs.

This is over the top. It's Trump's fault that this and other threats to lawmakers have been made. Of course, Trump would never accept responsibility if these threats were carried out.
What are the qualifications of any of the 20 plus?
Money, and lot's of it. The DNC thinks the only way to get a D nominee is that the candidate must have and raise $$$$$$$$$$. Forget the vetting. Either that, or acquiring someone who is 10 times as nasty as Trump.
Thanks for reminding me Dutch, I forgot all about the I don't care coat.
Look at it this way Guy, she's an easy piece of ass for don, and now that he's got her, all it took was waving $$$$$ under their noses, well..... I sort of knew about the trump female modeling stuff, for the rich and shameless, there's many like Jerry Epstein and Trump, that we may never find out about. We don't know if trump has ever played with underage girls, but if news broke that he did, it wouldn't surprise me a bit. He's about the creepiest man I've ever seen. Men who use women and abuse them should be castrated as punishment, that would be a deterrent to others who might think twice about using and abusing women.
Send Her Back! Send Her Back! Send Her Back! Send Her Back!
Okay, if you insist!
Melanija Knavs was born in Novo Mesto, and grew up in Sevnica, in the Yugoslav republic of Slovenia. She worked as a fashion model through agencies in Milan and Paris, later moving to New York City in 1996. Her modeling career was associated with Irene Marie Models and Trump Model Management.
In 2001, Knavs became a permanent resident of the United States. She married Donald Trump in 2005 and obtained U.S. citizenship in 2006. She is the second first lady (after Louisa Adams) born outside the United States, and the first one to be a naturalized citizen

The polls actually were exactly right, since they predicted that Hillary would win by roughly 2.5 %, which she did IN THE POPULAR VOTE.
The wild card, unfortunately, turned out to be the electoral college, where a roughly a total of 100,000 votes (out of a total of roughly 127 million) in 3 key states swung the outcome in the wrong direction.
Which is why we shouldn't believe any polls.
If you can believe in polls, which were dreadfully wrong leading up to the 2016 election.
Thank you Dutch for the kind words.
I think you're one of the members using this site who has a very accurate assessment of the direction this country is going. In old day terminology, we used to say things are going to hell in a handbag, and I believe that's true present day. Granted, there are some good people living in the USA, but things seemingly have gone from bad to worse in a matter of a couple of years.
I vividly recall the 60's and 70's when African Americans struggled trying to stay alive dealing with police departments, and IMO, we're flashing back to those days when cops did what they wanted to with minority groups of people, there seems to be an uptick in police shootings of blacks. More brutality towards citizens too. Like we're headed for a police state with Nazi like officials overseeing this more violent society and doing nothing about it. And now with trump being a racist dictator (acting president), it seems to have empowered white supremacists, which has emboldened them into supporting him even more. This is clearly going the wrong way.
Well Dutch, that's quite a lot to sort out, but I get the point.
I consider myself one of those who has never been out of this country, except, I have been to a couple of different places in Canada. I can say how I was treated as an American in a French Province, I believe it was Quebec. I wasn't greeted or treated warm and friendly while there. I never learned to speak French either, which probably was one of my problems. It was difficult for me to communicate with the people.
I can just imagine how people of the USA are treated abroad right now, which is probably much worse before Trump. Some Americans here treat foreigners like a piece of shit, which is wrong. I would like to think that America was once a place to come because people were more accepting. I just wonder how my father was treated while he was trying to assimilate here from Europe decades ago. I've heard of all the disparaging remarks and names foreigners were called years ago, and learned the meanings of those nasty names. Just as the racist labels are for blacks in America. People never seem to learn that these names and nasty remarks are hurtful and without consideration of where people came from.
None of us would be here now if it weren't for boats bringing our ancestors here to begin with.
