    Mississippi Republicans Would Prohibit Towns From Establishing A Minimum Wage

    ----------------snip-----------------

    The bill claims that such a law is “necessary to ensure an economic climate conducive to new business development and job growth in the State of Mississippi.” While it notes that any debate on such matters “should be assigned to the Mississippi Legislature,” it also specifically states that the majority is “not suggesting a state minimum wage or minimum benefit package.” The bill passed the House earlier this month and now awaits action in the Senate’s Accountability, Efficiency, Transparency Committee.

      Though perhaps "whiz" (as in 'take a whiz') and "dump" (as in 'take a dump') might be appropriate as they 'trickle down' on the working poor.

      What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.
