    • On May 01, 2014, by mkail666 - I urge you to view this data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics before supporting this bill. This increase will affect almost no one and of those that are affected it will in no way make them self-sufficient. This is a "feel good" bill that will do nothing but harm our economy.
