“Ford additionally does not want Kavanaugh in the room when she appears before the panel and she would prefer for the federal appeals court judge to testify first, according to reports.” In other words, deny the man the right to face his accuser, nor to answer her allegations.

Should that extra complication be necessary? Those with high incomes would do better to pay their people better through wages than through subsidies-via-taxes. That would mitigate both of the original issues raised.

A law campaigned on as a tool to lift people up actually shuts people out. The spirit of , however, is not so easily crushed. People will find ways and build tools to make ends meet and fulfill their desires.

laws makes low-value work illegal. You're not allowed to directly earn money for something worth less than the minimum wage, at least not that any employer could afford to pay. How does that help people who need to build up their skill levels?

“We have to house our workforce,” I once heard an Arlington politician say in a public debate. Why? The argument is the cost of housing is too high for low-wage workers, so they must tax those with high incomes to subsidize expenses of those with low incomes.

How is it that the same people who complain about “income inequality” also seek to provide “affordable housing” (subsidized housing) which accommodates the lifestyle of those with high incomes?
