    Congress doesn't want to deal with problems that need to be dealt with.

    I lived during times when rates were much, much higher than they are now and the market was still the place to put your money.

    Thank you. People who haven't had to use health coverage have no idea what it costs. After a routine visit to the Dr an anomaly was found in my EKG. The subsequent test cost me $1200 out of pocket and would have cost me $8000 without my company insurance. Of course, my test results were normal, so $1200 down the drain, but hate to find out what subsequent tests would cost.

    Agreed - they didn't have to unveil their secret non-existent plan.

    My wife has an acquaintance whose husband is an independent contractor. They are building a 3000+ square foot house and go on at least two cruises a year. An independent contractor reprogramed a piece of equipment at work. He told me he was independent by choice, he liked taking a month or two off every year. Some people like being independent.

    See your point - but I don't think raising the minimum wage will translate to over consumption that will translate to commodity inflation. Numbers have been pointing to a more stingy American consumer.

    I think there would have to be wage inflation - we may be a ways off from that.

    IBM has been doing that for a long time. My brother-in-law works for the company and has been worried about his job for the last 20 years.
