Take it to the bank: Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants to raise minimum wage to $22 per hour

“If we started in 1960, and we said [that] as productivity goes up … then the minimum wage was going to go up the same … if that were the case, the minimum wage today would be about $22 an hour,” the senator said, at a recent Education, Labor and Pensions Committee hearing on “Keeping up with a Changing Economy: Indexing the Minimum Wage.”

The current minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. Ms. Warren wondered, in a YouTube video of the hearing posted by her staff: “What happened to the other $14.75?”

She answered her own question: “It sure didn’t go to the worker.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren: U.S. success due to government regulation

The government not only has a right to regulate the American people, but regulation is really the key to the country’s success, Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren said on Thursday.

“It’s thanks to federal agencies that no one has to worry that those white pills are baking soda instead of antibiotics or that the paint on the baby’s crib is laced with lead,” she said, in prepared remarks reported in Politico.

Absolutely, if I’m running a company making drugs or baby cribs I want to kill my customers and the only thing stopping me from doing that is the Federal Government.  Because, God Knows, there wouldn’t be any negative consequences from the marketplace or local courts. And unemployment for beginning (new worker) or high schoolers is 50-60% Now!  Raise the minimum wage 300% and who would hire anyone not already in possession of extensive (job) experience and skills.

This Loon is the best and brightest that Massachusetts can find to send to Washington D.C. in these tough times?

I’m done voting in this state, it’s worse than pissing in the ocean. It makes me feel dirty.
