Scott Sargis commented on Scott Sargis's blog post 'CBO: $10 Minimum Wage A Mixed Bag'
"Thanks Sandra. That's the real issue. In an ideal world it would be perfect to raise people's wages, but the key question is, "who is going to pay for this?" By further burdening employers, as the CBO rightly predicts, employers…"

Sandra McCartt commented on Scott Sargis's blog post 'CBO: $10 Minimum Wage A Mixed Bag'
"There is one little problem with this minimum wage increase being touted as raising the uneducated out of poverty. With almost half the country on food stamps, child care assistance, chip, and multiple other assistance programs those thinking that…"

"Keith, I didn't call you any names. Instead, I accurately judged your far left leanings, which you confirmed (i.e. Keith “Proud Liberal” Halperin). Also, as I stated previously, the key to any statistics are their source.…"

"Scott, I did allude to your point about STEM training and education (my end-of-comment Point 3). While I agree that this is a good idea and would help a number of people in the future, it would not help anyone NOW, as would be the case with…"

"Keith, If you read and digested my whole article, you would have read that I do not want people to live at the poverty level. Instead, there should be a greater effort to upgrade the skills of ALL American workers especially…"

"Thanks, Scott. Appreciate your use of a citation. Here's my refutation of your citation (I' 've heard a lot about the CBo report): http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/02/19/cbo-report-disputed_n_4816854.html Even if one assumes that…"

"Keith, as always I appreciate your comments. However, we can agree to disagree. History shows that the government always does a very poor job in either creating jobs or augmenting wages. This is another example. If you read the nonpartisan report by…"

Keith D. Halperin commented on Scott Sargis's blog post 'CBO: $10 Minimum Wage A Mixed Bag'
"Thanks, Scott. I think it should be increased, and the usual "job killing" arguments are disproven: Furthermore, I think those opposed to raising it should be required to support themselves and their families for 30 days solely…"
