Yes,   The wealthier 53% of America pays for the other half.

I thought everyone knew that.   

   A flat tax would have been cool.

At the point when the percentages flip ....America is done.

So the key to solving the problem is to raise the wages of the 47% so that they make enough money to OWE Federal Income taxes, and by doing so, the number of people qualifying for social welfare programs will decrease dramatically, as will the cost of these social welfare programs.  A win win for the whole country!

Where are those dollars (wage increase) coming from ?   Are you going to confiscate them from the people that worked hard and saved up a bunch ?

There is only so many dollars in the world.  If you print up a bunch of dollars and hand them out to that 47%,  all dollars are worth less.

it would just raise the national debt, not a great answer ...IMO.

The price of labor(wages) is primarily determined by supply and demand, so if we decrease the supply of labor, or at least slow down the increase, wages will rise on their own as they have been doing, albeit slowly, for the last few years, so some of these companies with all this cash on hand, will be forced to pay some of that money for increased wages.  Before we left Iowa for the winter, I saw a McDonalds advertising starting wages as high as $13.50 per hour.  That is a start.

but now I can't afford to buy a Big Mac as often as I used to ??

L.A. passed a new minimum wage law,   that McDonald's will get $15 an hour, 

 They say a person working at a fast food restaurant can not properly raise a family on the present min wage of $10.25   .......Duh ?

Why not?  I saw a study from a couple of years ago that showed that if McDonalds raised their starting wage to $10.10 per hour from $7.75, it would only add $.04 to the cost of a Big Mac.

So if every company raises their prices by the same percentage we could give everyone a pay raise ??

and in the end where are we ?  They call it 'inflation' I think.

Every night there are 100's of new laborers coming into America.

 Yes we should slow that down.

 :)) 

It would slow down naturally if for everyone of the people who come here every night and are then hired by a business, the business is fined $10,000 as provided by Federal Law.  Wouldnt be long and businesses would no longer hire the people who come here every night, and they would stop coming here.

as long as our economy is better than their's ...they will continue to come to America and melt into that 47%.

If it wasn't so cold,  I'd think about sneaking into Canada.  I hear everything up there is free... ;)
