5 good questions

Got this from another message board:

Have the GOP explained how attacking unions will raise the wages of the middle class?
How do tax cuts for the 1% raise middle class wages?
Does outsourcing raise middle class wages?
When has corporate deregulation raised middle class wages?
Why is it that the GOP only seems to be concerned with the deficit and debt when they aren't in the White House?

2. They dont WANT middle class wages to rise!

They claim higher wages will lead to inflation. So they think its great that Walmart employees make only $9 an hour and have to be on food stamps that we the tax payers pay for.

3. they try to convince us higher wages lead to the job creators being forced to cut jobs

They have never even pretended to care about wages.
