@76Ytown,Thought I try to get a bit more info about the day-report program.
In some other jurisdictions, the "inmates" not only are assigned community service projects but also attend classes to develop life skills.

@76Ytown,I'm no expert on the county jail, but I'm under the impression that 'day-reports' are NOT provided room and board. IOW, they are not housed at the jail.
If that is so, then your "contribute to their room and board" is misguided.

You can "feel" whatever you like, but the practicality is that the House is still working on a "repeal and replace" legislation for Obamacare.
On the Senate side you will have to flip 6 Democrats and keep all the Republicans in line to get a simple majority.That's a pretty heavy lift to ask the Senate to revert to Pre-ObamaCare days.
On the Minimum wage issue, there are already enough House Republicans that are "soft" on the TEA party line that would vote an increase in the minimum wage.
True, that until the votes are cast, it's not locked up. But the current indications are that the House is more likely to pass Min wage than the Senate would kill Obamacare.

Get real, Reid knew it wouldn't pass. Just not the votes to pass, so why waste the time.
On the other hand, the public seems to be supportive of a minimum wage proposal, many republicans have spoken in favor of a minimum wage proposal,.
The chance that a minimum wage deal would be adopted by the House is very real. That's what you and boehner are afraid of.
the most effective way to avoid passage is to prevent bringing it to a vote, which is your plea.

Tax breaks... that's what I though originally
However : "The marriage penalty in the United States refers to the higher taxes required from some married couples filing that would not be required by two otherwise identical single people with exactly the same income, as well as the higher taxes that one partner to a marriage may pay on marriage, while the other partner receives a "marriage bonus" or lower taxes. Multiple factors are involved, but in general, in the current U.S. system, the earner in a single-income couple usually benefits greatly from filing as a married couple, while the nonearner in a single-income couple and both earners in dual-income couples receive "marriage penalties" whether filing jointly or separately. The percentage of couples affected has varied over the years, depending on shifts in tax rates." - wikipedia
