On Paul Cook, some interesting tidbits @ http://votethemout2014.net/Voted.html. The site shows that:
(1) Cook voted to oppose increasing the minimum
wage to $10.16 per hour by 2016 (while he gets his automatic pay
increase as a result of a bill cosponsored by his mentor and campaign
advisor, Jerry Lewis),
(2) Cook voted to give Monsanto protection so they
can dominate the market and charge unreasonable fees for their products
without fear of liability suits, and
(3) Cook voted to increase the
interest rate on student loans to 3.4%... so in this snippet on one
site, he protects profiteering by Monsanto, screws the production
workers working semi-skilled and unskilled jobs while increasing the
cost of getting an education for people trying to climb out of the
minimum wage trap jobs--what an elitist hypocrite!
Bob's view? Student loan interest rates should not be hiked at all, minimum wage (which most college students earn while earning a degree, if they are able to get a job) should be increased, especially since the loan costs are going up. Monsanto is using the government to secure market control and immunity to being held accountable. Sad man who apparently hates our young men and women just trying to survive while getting ahead, but collects his raise despite getting little done (except for large corporations).
