A Vietnam veteran in Wisconsin will have to wait until next year to find out if Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) supports raising the minimum wage, after the Tea Party Congressman shut his door and drove away from the question.

Yesterday, in video flagged by CREDO SuperPAC, a constituent approached Duffy outside a meeting in Wausau and attempted to ask him a question about the minimum wage. Duffy told the man he’s already held his single yearly town hall, got in his car, shut his door, and drove away, leaving the veteran tried to shout his question through the car’s rolled up window.

Ms. Woods’s current job has not been meeting her needs. When she began driving a passenger van last year, she earned $9 an hour and worked 40 hours a week. Then her wage was cut to $8 an hour, and her hours were drastically scaled back. Last month she earned just $233. So Ms. Woods, who said that she had been threatened with eviction for missing rent payments and had been postponing an appointment with the eye doctor because she lacks insurance, has been looking for another, better job. It has not been easy.
‘I’m looking for something else, anything else,’ she said. ‘More hours. Better pay. Actual benefits.’

Remember Dave Cote? The CEO of Honeywell who thinks the corporate tax rate should be 0%?

Apparently he likes reporters about as much as he likes taxes…Not only does one of Cote’s henchmen accost reporter Mike Elk (of In These Times) to get the microphone away, but Elk also claims he was barricaded in a room.

If it was true that lower taxes for the rich and more wealth for the wealthy led to job creation, today we would be drowning in jobs.
