Re "Obama's approval rating hits 62%" Mr. President, Do you want to be more popular? Why stop at a $9 minimum wage? Make it $18 an hour, and you'll be twice as popular.
While we're at it, why not increase food stamps and welfare rates to match the increase in the minimum wage. Free stuff is always popular when you don't have to pay for it. The Candy Man is always loved the most by the children.
Taxpayers are the bad guys in President Barack Obama's scenarios. They're the ones asking serious questions about how we're going to pay for everything.
