Barry Goldwater Spins In His Graveby Doug Mataconis
President Bush has officially abandoned the idea that the Republican Party believes in economic freedom:
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President George W. Bush said on Wednesday that he supports a Democratic proposal to increase the U.S. minimum wage but said it should be coupled with tax and regulatory relief for small businesses.
“I believe we should do it in a way that does not punish the millions of small businesses that are creating most of the new jobs in our country,” Bush told a news conference. “So, I support pairing it with targeted tax and regulatory relief to help these small businesses stay competitive and to help keep our economy growing.”
How about just leaving business alone to begin with ?
