Useless Minimum Wage Hikes

Alright, pretty much everything makes me mad about liberals.  It kinda starts with the lying and then goes downhill from there.

So, let’s just focus on one aspect of liberal propaganda that is driving me nuts right now.

Liberals say that Republicans aren’t for working people because no Republican votes for minimum wage hikes and stupid, meaningless “income equality” bills.

Nothing could be farther from the truth.  No Republican votes for those things, because we understand that they all hurt workers.  And, Republicans understand that the government shouldn’t be sticking its unusually large nose into decision-making for businesses.

Minimum wage hikes hurt workers.  They make those jobs less plentiful because the businesses can’t pay the higher wages or they will go out of business. When businesses go out of business, don’t liberals understand that everyone loses their jobs?

Or, do they just not care?

Btw, who wants to associate with a party who is fighting for you to get the minimum wage?  What snobs liberals are to look down on people and say that they are only worth the minimum.

I am a conservative Republican, I want to talk to people about the maximum wage.  How about some of that, huh?

Republicans, talk about working hard, getting a good education and earning the maximum wage.

Or, at least, annunciate it better for heaven’s sakes.

We aren’t for minimum wage hikes because they don’t help people.    And, we are for helping people, not hurting them.

We are for the free market, which dictates how high wages can go.  We are against government, which can only force a minimum.

“Free enterprise has done more to reduce poverty than all the government programs dreamed up by Democrats.”  Ronald Reagan
