  •  When Republicans repeal child labor laws (0+ / 0-)

    and raise the retirement age,  just where do they think all jobs are going to come from? Maybe one of these Republicon assholes could suggest some realistic ideas to employ the millions already looking for work before adding millions more to the eligible workforce. Maybe if the current working class could earn a living wage and feel safe in the knowledge that their retirement safety nets will be their for them, their elderly parents and young children wouldn't have to seek out low paying jobs to help scrape by.

    The Grifter Gingrich may need reminding that the generation of hard working Americans he talks about grew up at a time in America when decent paying jobs were plentiful. We had a strong manufacturing base with strong union representation. Average Americans earned a wage that afforded them decent housing...with only ONE wage earner in the household. Those days are LONG gone in America. Thanks to Republicans decimation of our working class. The saddest thing is that many on the Right see Newticles as a "deep thinkers". What a pack of hyenas this year's Republicontenders are.
