Countdown to Cuts, Climate Change, Media Madness and Drones

  As you can see from the picture above, the GOP has taken to calling the cuts mandated by the Sequester "Obamaquester".  But this slide from a John Boehner-delivered Power Point presentation appears to show that it was the Speaker who wanted it! At the Daily Beast, John Avlon reports  I happened to come across an old email that throws cold water on House Republicans’ attempts to call this “Obama’s Sequester.” It’s a PowerPoint presentation that Boehner’s office developed with the Republican Policy Committee and sent out to the Capitol Hill GOP on July 31, 2011.

Minimum wage certainly doesn't cut it.  Since 2009, the federal minimum wage has stood at $7.25 an hour - though some states pay less and a few paid more.   But if you were paid the federal minimum and were lucky enough to get 40 hours of work a week, you'd gross a whopping $290 for that week's work... and if you never took a day off, you'd gross an annual income of $15,080.
