4. Not that important...

Perhaps that's why I'm not a Bernie supporter.

We need new business start-ups. In some ways raising the minimum wage too high is a greater benefit to large companies. A smaller company may have to cut the number of hours that their few employees work, or eliminate positions. The McDonalds and WalMarts in this country will just raise their prices. It'll run out even more mom and pop shops.

We need a new technology revolution (like alternative energies) worse than a bump in minimum wage right now.

On health insurance, we will eventually get there. I don't imagine Bernie will get us there any quicker than Hillary.
