Your means and methods have zero chance of producing a floor like that.  Zero.
I don't have a problem with inequality of outcomes as long as there is an outcome floor.  No one, regardless of circumstance, should go without food, shelter, safety or healthcare.
I'd go for that.  Universal healthcare, the pursuit of knowledge through scientific reasoning, and a distinct lack of a ruling class to siphon away all the gains in worker productivity.  I'll take it.
I see the tactics of divide & conquer have worked quite well on you, SDW.  Hate on the unions and get angry at the union members' benefits.  You fall right into the elite's trap.  The obscenely wealthy take the vast majority of the cookies and then point at the union or minority worker and shout, "He's taking more than his fair share!"   Scott Walker admitted that divide & conquer is the Republican strategy.  Sadly, it worked in Wisconsin just as it has worked on...
I present to you folks SDW, the unwitting train passenger.  It's not a laughable notion whatsoever.  The fact that you would just dismiss it as laughable is telling.   http://www.npr.org/blogs/itsallpolitics/2012/04/10/150349438/gops-rightward-shift-higher-polarization-fills-political-scientist-with-dread      
Yeah, how dare the workers not get fucked!?
You are having a perspective issue.  A person on a stationary train observes a stationary car as unmoving.  However, when that train begins to move rapidly to the right, the car appears to move to the left, despite that it actually has also begun to move at a medium pace to the right.  If the train's passenger lacks the cognitive ability to recognize that it is he who is in fact in a rapidly rightward moving train, the passenger will mistake the car's slower right...
I think it's very important that everyone has access to healthcare.  I view it as a universal human right--any society that deems itself civilized must respect that.  Mitt Romney went a long way to help that cause when he was governor of Massachusetts.  I wish it cut out the insurance middlemen, but it was an excellent step in the right direction.   I urge everyone in this thread to remain sincere and leave the snark at the door.  I invite SDW, particularly, to come...
Way to misinterpret.  Only those who feel that making Obama a 1 term president is the highest priority are the morons, jackasses, and/or the hoodwinked.  The conservatives who didn't vote for Obama but still wished for some bipartisanship and supported the president are not counted among those.
Millions of morons, jackasses, and the hoodwinked.  Those who would compromise their own ideals to do so--vote against their own policies--don't have the health and welfare of the nation at heart.  Fact is, Obama is center-right.  He's also black and has the letter "D" next to his name.  Finally, although he is pretty corporate friendly (just look at the lack of prosecutions against those who put us in this mess), he's also not willing to sign over America's deed to the...
