How Strange: Never Heard a Democrat Admit That Raising the Minimum Wage Would Make Goods and Services Cost More Before...

Part of the new Covid relief bill that Congress is trying to pass has the 15 dollar an hour minimum wage increase by 2025.

Since they forced themselves into an impossible situation where they're never going to get a bill passed in time without leaving tens of millions of unemployed without any income, they should probably shelve that idea for now.

Nothing strange about that, but I thought this was strange at the bottom of a USA Today article...

Quote:

Under a provision known as the Byrd Rule, a senator can raise objections to “extraneous” provisions in legislation being passed under reconciliation, and if the objection is ruled in order, then the provision will be stripped from the bill. Provisions are considered “extraneous” if they do not have a substantial effect on the federal budget.

Proponents of the minimum wage increase such as Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., have argued that the wage increase could survive scrutiny under the Byrd Rule. He pointed to a recent study by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office that found an increase in the federal minimum wage would increase the budget deficit by driving up the price for goods and services used by the federal government. But if the provision remains in the final Senate legislation, it is unclear if Democrats like Sinema and Manchin would support it, leaving its future in jeopardy



So... in an effort to keep the minimum wage increase in the bill and argue that it WOULD have an impact on the Federal Budget so it can't be stripped from the bill with the Byrd Rule, Bernie Sanders himself has just admitted that raising the minimum wage would increase the costs of goods and services? Substantially enough to have an effect on the entire 2021 US federal budget even?

That's the first time I've ever heard a Democrat admit that.

Odd.



What's not odd though is that USA Today buried that part at the bottom of their article where nobody is going to read it.

But good on them for at least fekkin reporting it. I'd venture a guess that most Lefty "news" outlets won't even mention that part.

Explain yourself Roomba.

Or at least show that you're capable of having an opinion on your own.

I changed the thread title since the only reply this got today was from the Roomba.

This thread is merely another announcement that you are nothing but a pill-popping racist hate-monger illiterate and hypocrite.

This is the same topic discussed in several segments of the past week on The Rush Limbaugh Show. Partly the underlying facts about destroying the economy, but largely about how Democrats have never before admitted it.

Those discussions have more depth and gravitas than you would be able to provide here, plus they didn't have riffraff dropping turds in the middle of the discussion.

And yet I was able to come up with this idea all on my own without some dude making tens of millions of dollars enlightening me while speaking to his followers.

The facts here are blatantly obvious. Only a fact-challenged idiot would not understand it.

We're talking about a guy who still thinks the election was stolen.

The election was stolen.

And the facts here are still lost on you, little boy.

Did you check your IP address yet?

This post yet another announcement that you are nothing but a pill-popping racist hate-monger devisive hypocrite, and incessant illiterate.

While vast swathes of millions of Americans have these same thoughts, "all on their own" and separately, independently, across the fruited plain, without some Libtard blowhard spoon-feeding them what they are supposed to think, who are the exact definition of Dittoheads, and then hear what they are thinking discussed on the Rush Limbaugh Show, you are doing exactly the same, like you just proved.

But you are so INCREDIBLY ILLITERATE that you cannot comprehend that you are also a Dittohead.

What a complete hypocrite.

The Democrat party is now the party of big business, big business wants a $15 minimum wage so they can put the smaller mom and pop stores out of business. How many small business did Walmart put out of business when they built a store near these small towns? How many dead malls are there now because of Amazon? By the way, who stayed open during the shut down last year? During the shut down I couldn't go into my favorite watering hole (family owned since 1947) for a few beers and lunch (corner dinner was closed also) BUT, Berger Kings drive thru was open. The mall a few miles from my house was closed which is filled with small shops, but the Walmart and Amazon were wide open...and are big Democrat donors.
