Democrats are the party of no solutions.
All they have are empty promises—which always end in disaster.
For example, remember the train-wreck that was Obamacare?
Democrats tried to create government-funded healthcare, and it resulted in millions without insurance options.
Now Democrats, who can’t even reopen the government, want to force another terrible idea onto our economy.
And the insane part is that this idea has failed EVERYWHERE it has been implemented.
From Washington Examiner:
“Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va., the new chairman of the Education and the Workforce Committee, said Wednesday…
…that he would introduce legislation to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour, more than double its current rate of $7.25.
The legislation is set to be officially unveiled later Wednesday.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has previously said she backs a $15 rate and will make passing legislation on it a priority.“
If this passes, welcome to misery.
Over the last two years, Trump’s policies have resulted in more jobs and increased wages.
How did he do it? By forcing companies to pay more? No.
He did it by cutting regulation, slashing taxes, and reducing illegal immigration.
Those policies resulted in a booming economy, one where companies hire Americans and increase wages to keep them happy.
And on the flip side, what do the Democrats want to do?
Force through a policy that will cripple employment, eliminate jobs, and shut down businesses.
And they know that’s exactly what will happen, too.
States that pushed for $15/hour saw companies fleeing at a record pace; businesses cut staff, and many just went out of business.
But Democrats push this to score political points among their mindless supporters.
And, when all the jobs are gone, they can force more Americans to go on welfare.
Then we have more needy Americans than ever, and that’s what Democrats want:
Because needy people foolishly vote for leftists, who just create more need.
THIS is the dirty little secret of the Blue party!
