A mom of four works full time for $8 an hour. She makes about $15,000 a year. Her poor income forces her to apply and use government assistance. Her estimated income tax return is more than $5,000. Wouldn't it make sense to raise the minimum wage, allow her to get off of welfare, get a smaller tax return (in some cases not get a refund, rather pay a tax)? This would cost the government less AND allow for more paid taxes to come in, raising the budget.

Maybe, but the portrayed single mother story, does that make sense? Wouldn't raising her wage allow her to get less tax return or maybe even owe taxes?
Whow.... Sir, I never specified her history or job occupation. What if she is a widow? What if the husband was sick? What if he just up and left? This is the problem with conservative thinking...
It doesn't change my answer, and labeling me is not an answer.
The problem here is that you didn't really read my comment past the first line.
wow, you leaped to a bad conclusion about conservative, I am neither conservative nor liberal.
Sorry, you certainly sounded like a conservative.
If you read my hubs you would have found that I have problems with both parties.
