Will the House Leadership please stand up?
Time and time again they have suggested things such as defunding ObamaCare and never fulfill what they sought out to do. It makes them appear weak and misguided. Tonight Obama is reportedly going to sign an executive order increasing the minimum wage for new federal contracts from the current wage of $7.25 to $10.10.
Earlier on The Five today, Bob Beckel suggested it should be $20. This is a point at which it is possible for the House Leadership to strike. If $10.10 or $20 is adequate, why not $30 or even $50? I’ve enjoyed having this debate with statists who are cornered when you try to pin down an amount that would be “fair”. Their bluster and pride are quickly defeated and they are quickly neutered.
