Aren't there some good ideas implemented by the Left?

- Bill Clinton's FMLA bill, aka the Family Medical Leave Act.
- Maternity leave.
- Organized labor to increase workers comp, stability, and benefits. (Not government mandated dues or sanctions.)

And if wages are raised, why should the consumer have to pay in higher prices and not the CEO who has a million dollar mansion? Obviously he has extra costs for expansion, investment, and maintenance but it's not as if they are penny-pinching personally.

And shouldn't seniors and the disabled get government assistance whether they pay into a program or not?

We can't tell them to go compete in the free market to survive nor is family always reliable to provide sufficient assistance.

Because it's the very basic of all Economic Laws. Inflation. When everyone has more money, everything gets more expansive. Companies aren't responsible for it. When inflation hits, Governments outbalance the loss in PPP revenue with higher taxes, depleting any extra earning while not ending the inflation. Besides, not every CEO is wealthy.

The CEO's goal is to keep the profits even or growing, or the companies fires him. Companies have to raise prices or risk losing stock value and leaving an even worse scar on the economy.

Obviously he has extra costs for expansion, investment, and maintenance but it's not as if they are penny-pinching personally.

You do know the Company budget and the CEO net worth are different, right? That money is the CEO's earnings, not the Companies's back pocket.

They do get assistance.
