Republican Candidate: “I Do Not Support A Livable Wage” (VIDEO)


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Jon Ossoff's challenger in Georgia's 6th congressional area stated she does not sustain a livable wage. John Iadarola, Ana Kasparian, and Amberia Allen, the hosts of The Young Turks, damage down her solution. Tell us what you assume in the remark area below.

" Throughout Tuesday night's dispute for an open UNITED STATE House seat in Georgia, Republican candidate Karen Handel stated that she does not sustain a "comfortable wage."

" This is an instance of the basic distinction in between a liberal and also a conservative: I do not support a livable wage," she stated on Atlanta's WSB-TV in feedback to a viewer concern concerning increasing the base pay. "What I sustain is ensuring that we have an economy that is robust with reduced taxes as well as less guideline."

Handel claimed that increasing the minimum wage could "significantly" injured local business.

Handel's opponent, Democrat Jon Ossoff, stated that "the base pay needs to be a living wage." He kept in mind that he supports raising the base pay progressively to ensure that services could gradually adapt to the increase."

    I am pro-life as long as it is not livable.

      To answer your question, $1200 a month is an impossible rate to find housing, food and transportation let alone replacing clothing that gets worn out or ANY sort of deviation from a necessarily strict budget. I know because my family wasn’t always as well off as we are now.

      snowbaordguru yeah, I have to keep on buying food, buying clothes, buying water, paying my cable/internet bill (which should be considered a utility under Congress NOT from a half assed FCC vote), Paying for transportation like uber, gas, regular taxi, buses, etc. im lucky to pay only $250 for rent to my parents, but the prices ive seen for an apartment or house are RIDICULOUSLY high even in the suburbs.

      No worries. Which comment was the issue for you. I thought I made all of my points clearly.

      *”To answer your question, $1200 a month is an impossible rate to find housing, “*

      According to, the average price for a single bedroom apartment in the US is $1029 a month.

      It is obvious the Republicans like the woman in the video know that $171 dollars is enough to pay the rest of any person’s monthly expenses.

      They are a bunch of morons out of touch with reality or they simply do not care. How Christian of them since 99% of them are religious.

    Finally a Republican that tells the truth about Republican ideals not supporting livable wages….
    They don’t care about the poor/middle class, they only care about the wealthy…

      UNC GRAD – You’re right – they don’t care about small business owners, either. They just use them as political pawns in their service of big corporations, wealthy investors, and themselves. Small business owners typically don’t send them 6 and 7 figure campaign contributions. If they cared about small businesses, they would support more incentives specifically for small businesses and they would make it more difficult for big corporations to keep small businesses and startups out of the market.

      But unfortunately, a lot of people fall for this BS, including a lot of small business owners

      Chukwu – You know that Rand Paul is in the minority of Republicans on a lot of issues. That’s a big reason why he hasn’t sniffed being Republican presidential nominee.

      Canaan – Most Democrats aren’t just as bad. But most are pretty damn bad. They play the role of being helpless and incompetent, while Republicans enact the things that their big donors want.

    Capitalism is fascism.

    • Posted by Michael Felix, at Reply

      John I believe what you are trying to identify is corporatism, to which I would largely agree.

      Tiny Hands Donald while I agree that politics and economics are intrinsically linked, I don’t believe that automatically means capitalism = fascism. At best you could say capitalism largely leads to fascism. Which is still blatantly false.

      Chrony Capitalism, which we have in this country, is very much like Fascism. The merger of state and corporate powers by definition is fascism. Prime example of that? Obamacare, forcing people to buy corporate private health care insurance or get hit with a tax penalty.

    Republicans want to grow the economy to create more jobs that don’t pay a livable wage. Pay wages you can’t live on and then oppose government assistance to low wage earners that keep them from starving or having to live in a car? Selfish @$$holes!

    • Posted by D. San, at Reply

      Tom Tunafish it’s simple. their concern the economy itself and the country doing well even if the people are unhappy and there’s a divide of rich and poor that’s wide.

      and they think people who want it different don’t want to compete and want to drag the country down.

      they’d rather have an imbalance where there’s a higher top than a balance.

      but their theories haven’t really been shown as better anyway. I know very smart people made them and some parts are true.

      but the same can be said by other theories by smart people like sigmund frued and lemarc

    Whats really killing small businesses is putting corporations ahead of everything by giving them huge tax breaks, subsidies, and massive deregulation.
