"When a voter went up to Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.) on Tuesday and asked him whether he supported raising the minimum wage, the congressman had a simple -- and irrelevant -- bit of advice for the young man: Get a job...".* Cenk Uygur, Michael Shure, and Brian Unger discuss on The Young Turks.

I hate TYT. He is right. They should get a job..A SKILLED job. Something is wrong with this country when people wanna make a living by flipping fucking burgers. Gimme a break. How many of these people looked for a 2nd job before they protested? My dad worked 3 jobs at one point in his 20's. Why? Because he had 3 kids. So, HE took care of them before demanding that someone else should. You liberals have no idea what you're supporting.

+Ryan Ferretti I haven't tried to learn a skill like the ones that are in demand because they require me to take on loans. Which I won't do under any circumstances. I would kill myself before going into 5-figure debt. The system can't get better until people are able to survive. Productivity has gone up but the wages haven't been adjusted. Not even for inflation over time.

What does anyone think a Lican would say?  I'm retired and disabled, the banks and Wall Street caused me to lose my LIFE'S SAVINGS, so all I have is my Social Security and that is one of the things that the Licans hate with a passion.  They want the one percent to have everything but the poor to have NOTHING.  Get a job, indeed.  Even when the man tells him he HAS  job... Lican's don't listen.  
+Beverly Margolis-Kurtin get a job

some congressmen are retarded.
Is he under the impression that the minimum wage is for people without jobs?
This is the same guy that catered to his own children! 
Rest in peace you horrible Douchebag.

Good God! 22 consecutive election wins? That's an amazing record. Who knows what had to take place over lo! those 43 years to make that possible, D'ya think he was on the inside somehow? A little back-room dealing? Nah! It was on the up-and-up. 'Cause America doesn't tolerate underhanded behavior from it's public servants. RIP Mr. Young. Who knows? Maybe if you had the fantastic health care plan the rest of us have, you might still be alive.

He just died. Good Riddance.

So glad this asshole is getting out of politics. Maybe we can vote someone better into office. I don't have high hopes for people where I live to do that though.
