"Senator, will you please state very plainly that this bill in no way, shape, or form would harm America in any way and thus assuage his fears so that we can move on and stop wasting the tax dollars of the American people because he wants to be a showoff?"

Production of solar and other renewable energies will create sufficient revenues to maintain the funding of public systems, in addition to creating potentially millions of jobs."

House Majority Leader Ryan Gaines
Democrat from Oregon

Mr Speaker, I am proud to introduce the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2007. The bill would increase the federal minimum wage from $5.15 an hour, first to $5.85, and then $6.55 one year later, and $7.25 one year after that. The bill also makes separate provisions for the Northern Mariana Islands and American Samoa.

The American worker is crying out for a wage increase. The minimum wage has not increased in a decade: it was set at its current $5.15 mark in 1997. In the decade that America’s lowest paid workers’ pay has not increased one cent, CEO pay has increased by over a million dollars per year.

Because of our failings, all our failings, as legislators, to take further action, the minimum wage now stands at a 50 year low in purchasing power. A full time minimum wage worker earns a little over $10,000 a year, or barely two-thirds of the poverty line. We are not even paying poverty wages but sub-poverty wages.

Health care costs are rising, gas prices are rising, college tuition costs are rising. And yet, in the richest nation on Earth, the wages of those most in need of a pay increase are not rising. This isn’t an issue of abstract policy: this wage increase will pay out $4,400 a year per worker. That pays for more than a year of groceries, or two years of health care coverage.

An increase in the minimum wage will benefit 5 and a half million American workers directly and a further 7 and a half million indirectly. The minimum wage is a women’s issue: nearly 8 million of those workers are women. It is a family values issue: almost 4 million minimum wage workers are parents, over 6 million children would see their parents’ wages rise. It is a racial issue: nearly 5 million are people of color. It is an American issue.

Jack rose from his seat.

“Mr Speaker,” he began, “The Republican majority in the House passed a minimum wage bill in the last Congress. It had the exact same increase in schedule as this bill, and President Cush indicated he would sign it. The only reason that workers have not received a minimum wage increase is because the Democrats held up that bill for purely partisan reasons.

“The difference in the two bills is that the Republican version made allowance for small businesses. Yes, our lowest paid workers deserve a pay increase – there are many of us on both sides of the aisle who support that. But gains for our most vulnerable workers cannot come at the expense of our most vulnerable businesses. Just about every member of this Congress has at one time or another stood up and given a speech about how ‘small businesses are the lifeblood of the American economy’. Perhaps it’s time we demonstrated that in law.

“By stripping out pro-business provisions and pushing a minimum wage hike with no accommodations for small businesses, the Democrats are guaranteeing that it is exactly those small businesses who will be hit by the wage hike. A low paid worker benefits from an increase in the minimum wage – but their situation is drastically worsened if they lose their job altogether, and that’s what’ll happen to millions of Americans if this bill goes through without taking into account the concerns of small business owners who simply will not be able to pay their workers at these rates and will be forced to downsize or be run out of business altogether.

“Mr Speaker, I move to recommit the bill so that Ways and Means can properly deliberate on its impact and consider measures to assist small businesses with its compliance.”

Jack took his seat again.

Jack rose again.

“Naturally, Mr Speaker, I object.

“House Democrats giddy with the high of their newfound majority should remember that they do not enjoy a cloture-proof majority in the Senate, nor a veto-proof majority in either chamber. Attempts to ram through partisan fiats will end up with their legislation failing to advance even if it does pass the House, and I have no doubt that the Minority Leader in the Senate will not allow this bill to advance if it doesn’t take into account the legitimate concerns of the minority, and nor would President Cush sign such a bill without adequate provision for small businesses.

“I move to amend the bill:

    SECTION 5. SMALL BUSINESS TAX RELIEF.
      Increases the maximum taxable income at the 15% corporate income tax rate to $100,000.

      Creates a new 33% corporate income tax rate on maximum taxable income up to $1,000,000.

      Extends by 1 year the increased expensing allowance for small businesses.

      Extends by 1 year accelerated depreciation of qualified leasehold and restaurant improvement property. Eliminates the requirement that improvements to restaurant property must be placed in service more than three years after the original building is placed in service.

      Allows accelerated depreciation for qualified retail improvement property. Defines “qualified retail improvement property” as improvements to the interior portion of a nonresidential building used as a retail trade or business serving the general public. Excludes as an improvement the enlargement of the building, any elevator or escalator, common area structures, or the internal structural framework of the building.

      Increases the limit on annual gross receipts for small businesses from the requirement of using the accrual method of accounting to $10 million. Indexes such gross receipts amount for inflation after 2008. Exempts such small businesses eligible to use a cash accounting method from the requirement to use inventories.
    SECTION 6. SMALL BUSINESS CORPORATION CAPITAL GAINS TAX REFORM.
      Excludes gain from the sale or exchange of stock or securities as an item of passive investment income for the purposes of S corporation revocation rules.

      Excludes restricted bank director stock from treatment as S corporation stock.
“Mr Speaker, these amendments would create powerful tax incentives for small businesses, helping them to weather the impact of the increase in the minimum wage. I further move to amend:

    SECTION 7. WORK OPPORTUNITY TAX CREDIT.
      Extends by 5 years the combined work opportunity and welfare-to-work tax credit.

      Establishes as a new targeted group under such credit designated community residents. Requires such residents to be between the ages of 18 and 40 and have a principal place of abode in an empowerment zone, enterprise community, or renewal community.

      Expands the eligibility of veterans for such credit to include veterans with service-connected disabilities incurred after September 10, 2001. Increases from $6,000 to $12,000 the amount of disabled veteran wages eligible for such credit.
“The combined work opportunity and welfare-to-work tax credit is our best means of making sure work pays more than welfare. Extending and expanding this credit will encourage businesses to hire despite having to pay more in wage costs.”

      Excludes gain from the sale or exchange of stock or securities as an item of passive investment income for the purposes of S corporation revocation rules.

      Excludes restricted bank director stock from treatment as S corporation stock.
“Mr Speaker, these amendments would create powerful tax incentives for small businesses, helping them to weather the impact of the increase in the minimum wage. I further move to amend:

    SECTION 7. WORK OPPORTUNITY TAX CREDIT.
      Extends by 5 years the combined work opportunity and welfare-to-work tax credit.

      Establishes as a new targeted group under such credit designated community residents. Requires such residents to be between the ages of 18 and 40 and have a principal place of abode in an empowerment zone, enterprise community, or renewal community.

      Expands the eligibility of veterans for such credit to include veterans with service-connected disabilities incurred after September 10, 2001. Increases from $6,000 to $12,000 the amount of disabled veteran wages eligible for such credit.
“The combined work opportunity and welfare-to-work tax credit is our best means of making sure work pays more than welfare. Extending and expanding this credit will encourage businesses to hire despite having to pay more in wage costs.”

"Mr. Speaker, I object. Republicans are attempting to prevent the American people from prospering due to the lobbyists slipping money into their pockets."
News: Richard Martin, the independent governor of Meretica's Lunar Colony, has announced a presidential bid. A centrist running on a populist platform, Martin is gaining traction on both sides of the aisle. || President Maria Flores now holds a net approval rating of -28 points as the Meretican economy has begun to collapse. After Treasury Secretary Amanda Dayton was honest about the inability of the Flores Admin to properly handle the crisis, she was fired, leaving the Treasury Department without a leader.
