  •  If it is so hard . . . then raise minimum wage. (0+ / 0-)

    Maybe they need to be fighting to raise the minimum wage to make sure that everyone can make enough money to make it easy to get by.

    Let's see, two worker family at 60 hrs/wk each needs to make at least $300,000 so as to be not "just barely scraping by" . . . works out to $41.21/hr.  Oh, you say we should only work 40 hours a week and one parent should be home with the kid (the whole family values thing) that would be $144.23/hr

    So, I will accept their whining when they decide to actually make a change and support every family with a stay at home parent to live at a reasonable standard of living by raising the minimum wage to $144.23/hr.
