Minimum Wedge

Compromising language.

Raising the minimum wage is a key Democrat election issue this year, and they’re waging class warfare around the nation. They seek to raise the minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 – a 40% hike that could kill 500,000 jobs. Democrats are subtly signaling, however, that they’d be willing to settle for a smaller increase just to pass one. They need all the help they can get this election year, after all. So naturally, Barack Obama stepped in to add his conciliatory message. “You would think this would be a no-brainer,” the president said of raising it. But “Republicans in Congress don’t want to vote to raise it at all. In fact, some just want to scrap the minimum wage.” That’s right, because it destroys jobs. “Next thing you know,” he jabbed, “they’ll say, ‘Get off my lawn.’” And next thing we know, he’ll be quoting taunts from Monty Python.
