Bustin' Our Trunks, To Save Yours
The Republican Party believes in a patient-centered health care system, which is based on cutting health care costs down. We believe that a health care system that is ran by the government will reduce both the efficiency and the standard of care, as well as compromise the patient-physician relationship, and increase waiting periods within the health care system. The Republican Party believes that the more freedom the people have in choosing their health care, and their own way of managing their health care costs, the more effectively the entire system will run.
The Republican Party believes that minimum wage being raised would be a good thing. But, many others seem to disagree. Our current minimum wage rate is $8.10. When you work a standard 40 hour work week, 52 weeks a year, there's an annual income of $15,080. Our country's current poverty line is set at $19,777. As you can see, while working a minimum wage job you are struggling in life. It may not be by choice either. Maybe it's the only job you could find, even with a college degree. Minimum wage should be raised so that people who are struggling can get some extra money to put back into the economy so that everything gets better. We believe that raising minimum wage will benefit more people and the economy.
