You are, increasingly, more and more dead-wrong. Working hard, getting an education....no longer means squat. Even, "eventually," depending on the career or industry you choose--you can still be destined for an income/salary that will STILL qualify you for food stamps.

And then the really stupid dumb-ass bitches will rag your ass about needing food stamps too...all the while, they complain from the country club, or their bridge-club and society-organizations they play at, while their more accomplished spouses "work" business trips on lavish cruises with Carnival Cruises, heh....

If on the other hand, she actually believes she is making some profound point about a real disparity between cost of living and the minimum wage, she is gravely mistaken--at least according to a CPI plus inflation calculator.

Minimum wage in 1960 was $1.00; today it is $7.25. The 1960 value of $1.00 would translate into $7.84....far from Warren's attempt to portray a startling disparity.

Simply put....either she is being intentionally disengenuous; or she's stupid. Since she's pretty clearly not stupid, she's simply being a typical politician.
I agree with you, How odd LOL
