Minimum Wage Hike Passesby Kevin Boyd
The minimum wage increase passed as expected today. My fellow contributors Jason, Stephen, and any other contributors I have missed have done an excellent in discussing how bad of an idea this increase, but the purpose of this post is to praise the three Republicans who voted against the bill, since they are the only ones with any thing resembling economic sense.
Senator Tom Coburn (R-Oklahoma)
Senator Joh Kyl (R-Arizona)
Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina)
Unfortunately, they’re the only ones in the Senate who still believe in limited government.
