House Makes Wage Hike Talks Possible With Tax Cuts

   So, in order for the hourly workers in this country to get a federal wage increase, the House had to approve some small business tax cuts in the amount of $1.8 billion over a ten year period. The vote was 360-45.

   Now all that those low wage earners have to wait for is for the Senate and the House to finish their bickering over the tax cuts which in the Senate version come to $8.3 billion.

   Some Senate Republican officials are predicting that the final version will be closer to the Congress version when all is said and done.

    It will still be another two to three weeks before the bullshit is done.
