Would you be in favor of -

A - Raising the minimum wage to $15.00

Or

B - Tax prebate of $1240 a month for those that make $60,000 or less if single filer's or $120,000 if file jointly (Individual must not be on SSI to receive the prebate, must be 18 or older, must not be a dependent, and must have an SS Card if they do not pay income taxes)

Which would you prefer???

Do you prefer that your mugger shoot or stab you?
No taxes, no wage laws.

Interesting a lot of people are against B.

Now the minimum wage is definitely going to go up that's inevitable.

I think a prebate is a great alternative to avoid raising the minimum wage.

You do not get it. NOTHING for those with no or lower abilities. If they die, they die. Sheesh, where is T310 when I need him?

Think tax returns should be done away with and tax code reformed.

Example being a -

15% to 20% VAT Tax

15% to 20% Income Tax exempting $15,000 to $20,000 of income for everyone and exempting $15 Million to $20 Million for every $150 Million to $200 Million.

15% to 20% Corporate Tax with tax exemption of $150,000 to $200,000 of gross profit.

VAT and Corp taxes are just figured into the final price paid by the consumer. 10% income tax with NO EXCEPTIONS. None. You make $10 this year and you owe the feds $1.


The federal government should follow Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution and only perform 18 necessary functions. The 10% tax will more than pay for it. Everything else is left to the state, county and city governments to handle.
