Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren during a hearing of the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions last week asked why the current federal minimum wage rate is only $7.25 and not $22 an hour.
The obvious effects of raising the minimum wage are increased unemployment, increased bankruptcy, higher prices, and inflation. Given that these are all apparent objectives of hard leftists like Warren and Obama, maybe they should really inflict some social justice and raise the minimum wage to $100 per hour.
Congratulations to Al Franken. He is no longer the most preposterous clown in the Senate.
