Congress is willing to raise the minimum wage for stupid ugly poor people only if they can ease the onerous tax burden on Paris Hilton:
Republican leaders are willing to allow the first minimum wage increase in a decade but only if it’s coupled with a cut in future inheritance taxes on multimillion-dollar estates, congressional aides said Friday.
”It’s political blackmail to say the only way that minimum wage workers can get a raise is to give a tax giveaway to the wealthiest Americans,” said Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass. ”Members of Congress raised their own pay — no strings attached. Surely, common decency suggests that minimum wage workers deserve the same respect.”
”It’s outrageous the Republican Congress can’t simply help poor people without doing something for their wealthy contributors,” said Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio.
House lawmakers were to discuss the package at an early afternoon session, while the Senate GOP aide professed confidence the bill could advance through the chamber next week.
The aide asked not to be identified publicly because of the ongoing closed strategy sessions on the bill.
”It’s the one chance for Democrats who want to get a minimum wage increase,” the aide said.
Now it’s not like there aren’t jobs out there paying good wages like the oneJeannemarie Devolites Davis’ landed which paid her “…$78,000 last year for working “10 to 20 hours a week,” primarily at home on her cellphone“, but those kind of jobs are few and far between. And besides, you have to sleep with a man who looks like this to make that kind of big bucks.
That’s why they call it work.
