I was listening to the Stephanie Miller show Friday Morning (March 7th, 2014) when I heard Stephanie regular (and Sexy Liberal) John Fugelsang say something a bit…odd.
That Democrats…when it comes to Get Out The Vote (GOTV)…have their clown shoes on.
Since I work at the United Democratic Headquarters, having seen our Volunteers at work. I, of course, took great exception to this notion:
President Obama will answer questions about his signature healthcare law and how it could impact Latino communities during a nationally broadcast town hall on Thursday.
You can watch a livestream of the event here beginning at 8:30 a.m. Pacific.
The town hall was organized as part of the “Get Covered America” campaign (“Asegúrate” in Spanish), an outreach and enrollment effort aimed at Latinos…
This Thursday, March 6, 2014, the President will be on Univision talking to Latino Voters about the Affordable Care Act at what looks to be 8:30am our time. Here are the details from the White House website:

What do you get when you put Bill Nye the Science Guy and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson in the same room at the White House with President Barack Obama?
Yesterday, President Obama launched a new effort aimed at empowering boys and young men of color, a segment of our society that too often faces disproportionate challenges and obstacles to success. It’s called “My Brother’s Keeper”, and the President’s speech garnered a lot of headlines:
Part of my…
Yeah, it’s happening. If you’re looking at this page, you’re getting a quick look at the new Website design.
Things are still going to be bumpy for a a day or two as your humble webmaster works out all the kinks. But what you’re seeing now is the idea going forward.
So be patient. More…though not quite as abrupt changes are coming.
Now…where did I put that Masthead graphic?
Samantha Bee talks to Peter Schiff, financial commentator and CEO of Euro Pacific Capital Inc.
Yeah. But if you raise the minimum wage, everything goes up. EVERYTHING. The price of a hamburger goes up to $5 just to meet the minimum wage requirements. It sucks.
That’s not necessarily true. Most analyst have predicted a price increase of anywhere from .68 cents to $1.50 max.
This article breaks down the numbers really well. Long story short:
" Would the price of fast food soar with a higher minimum wage? It’s not likely. Economists at UC Berkeley have estimated a $15 wage would cost consumers about 10 percent more. (Americans spent, on average, about $2,620 on eating out in 2011, according to the National Restaurant Association.) A separate 2006 study suggests menu prices would rise about 17 percent with a $15 minimum wage, according to the Employment Policies Institute.
Breaking down the McDonald’s 2012 annual report provides a little more clarity. At company-run stores, profit margins are above 10 percent, but payroll and employee benefits add up to about 25 percent of sales at these locations. That means, if compensation were to double and no other expenses lowered to offset that rise, prices would have to increase by about 25 percent, or $1 more per Big Mac, to make up the difference.”
So if consumers don’t want to pay that increase they should just cook for themselves and call it a day.
