“No, we shouldn't start tipping anyone who makes minimum wage or higher. "Tipped worker" minimum wage is actually much lower per hour. Something like $3.80 an hour. If tipping fast food employees becomes the norm, you can bet that their wages will be slashed because the business owners can justify it.”
“It would be amazing if everyone paid their fair share, and in a city like Philadelphia where half of the population doesn't pay anything into the system I'm sure it would make a huge difference.”

“Yes I believe that all thinking people agree with you that if the top 1% just paid their fair share along with the corporations who pay less than 12% taxes on average these problems could be avoided.”

“......"half of the population doesn't pay anything into the system"...... really???? Since when residents don't have to pay property tax and you can keep their property?
What Corbett should have done is NOT allowed gas companies to not pay tax on fracking in PA. He is a worst governor Pa ever had.”

“In Philadelphia, every person who works pays a wage tax.”
“The teachers unions are bankrupting the districts. And the suburbs and rural areas are tired of paying for the city's schools. The state gets its money from its taxpayers. People who spend their entire lives without ever holding a job are not taxpayers. People who choose to have families they cannot even begin to afford are feeling the consequences of their choices.”

“Obviously you have not studied the issue. Maybe you should before making yourself look foolish with your incorrect statements.
You are a typical right winger and the majority of us are glad to read your whining but relieved to know your party is not in power.
If you are so upset go tell the Tpublican Governor to release the money.”

“You are singing the same note there, Sally. Stop whining about it and do something if it makes such a difference to you.”
“"Letting her die". Death is not something we forbid nor allow. Death is something we hope to postpone...Everyone should be entitled to die if natural causes. Allowing a child to die from cancer is not neglectful in the same way as allowing a child to die of untreated injuries.”

“Since it can be treated the parents refusal amounts to hastening her death..that is killing her sure as putting a pillow over her head...they are unfit and need to go to prison or the basement of the hospital”
“I appreciate that he is so moved by charitable causes. :) How nice that in his last few months he can enjoy knowing he did well and that he did good. I've worked for non profits all my life. I will never have the financial successes nor cultural impact of this man. But I I like to think about what he said, he did it because it makes him feel good. I do what I can to support causes close to my own heart, because it DOES feel good!!!”
“Nice to see OCNJ on the list at No. 3.
Ike's Clam Bar, Brown's Donuts and Shriver's Salt Water Taffy are not to be missed. But the best pizza isn't on the boardwalk. You'll have to head to Piccini's for that.”
