    I thought anyone over 18 was a legal adult, for one?!



    Bill would cut minimum wage to $5.44

    That ain't right. I am not necessarily opposed to a lower min. wage for teens, but it should be 18; not 22. Another example of "arresting the development" of adult children.

    The government setting the minimum wage for any age is not right. The government setting the maximum compensation for any private sector job is not right. Congress giving its members a raise is not right. Many things that the government does are not right.

    If Obamacare is good enough for the people, it should be good enough for Congress and the President's family.

    There is no such thing as "Obamacare," if the bill passes it will create an elective public option to compete with private insurers. Everyone in the country would then choose their own provider. There would be no policy called "Obamacare," or anything else, that anyone will be forced into.

    No, but people will be forced to get insurance even if they don't want to under threat of a $5,000 fine for the uninsured. Sounds like force to me.
