CBO Confirms: $15 Minimum Wage Spike Would Cost Nearly 1.5 Million American Jobs

Who could’ve seen this coming!?

Democrats are proud to remain ignorant on politics, economics and history. That’s a deadly combination, considering the radical left controls the White House and both chambers of Congress.

The whole “raising the minimum wage” argument is simple: if wages go up, businesses will be forced to raise prices on customers to make ends meet, while also cutting workers’ hours or stop hiring altogether.

Who wins in that scenario, Dems?

In a report released Monday, the Congressional Budget Office said that hiking the minimum wage to $15 might reduce poverty, but at the cost of 1.4 million jobs and by adding billions to the federal deficit.

President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) have both pledged to back legislation raising the federal minimum wage to $15 — what both the president and the socialist Senator call a “living wage.” Initially, both Biden and Sanders wanted to include the minimum wage hike in an upcoming COVID-19 economic relief package, but with Democrats intent on passing that bill through “reconciliation,” it may have to be offered separately.

[…]

The jump would “cut employment by 1.4 million workers and increase the federal deficit by $54 billion over a decade,” the outlet notes. And while federal spending on things like supplemental food aid programs might decrease, “spending on Medicaid and unemployment benefits would increase because of higher enrollment by those who lose their jobs.” Prices on goods and services would also rise, The Wall Street Journal adds.

It could not be easier to defeat a liberal argument. All you have to do is use their own words against them.

For example, Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was upset that she had to pay $7 for a croissant – as anyone would be.

But how is it so hard for AOC to see why she’s paying $7?

A basic lesson in economics should have Ocasio-Cortez understanding that when minimum wages rise, so do the costs of goods.

Hasn’t she ever heard of supply and demand?

AOC then fired off another tweet after being resoundingly mocked, as per usual…

Didn’t Orwell write in “1984” about people being forced to wear masks so everybody would be deemed equal, meaning nobody could be called good looking or ugly? Has anybody made this comparison yet? Food for thought. Anyway, another Republican governor is finally doing the right thing. From Breitbart: Alabama will become one of the next states to eliminate a government-imposed mandate that requires people wear masks in public, sources close to the matter told Breitbart News. A source familiar with state deliberations confirmed that as soon as Friday but definitely in the coming days. Alabama will join several other states nationwide in removing its mandate requiring masks in response to the coronavirus pandemic. https://twitter.com/willainsworthAL/status/1367214634231619584?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367214634231619584%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2021%2F03%2F03%2Fexclusive-sources-alabama-to-join-texas-mississippi-florida-others-in-eliminating-mask-mandates-this-week%2F Check out Biden’s response… https://twitter.com/NBCNews/status/1367192228762963971?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367192228762963971%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-biden-calls-texas-mississippi-governors-of-neanderthals-for-ending-mask-mandate%2F The governor of Mississippi fired back… https://twitter.com/tatereeves/status/1367204994458521616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367204994458521616%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftexas-mississippi-respond-to-biden-neanderthal-remark-about-their-decision-to-reopen And so did Texas Governor Abbott… https://twitter.com/GregAbbott_TX/status/1367243450140086274?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367243450140086274%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftexas-mississippi-respond-to-biden-neanderthal-remark-about-their-decision-to-reopen As you’d expect, Democrats aren’t pleased.

Don’t let Joe speak! Even Biden’s handlers know he isn’t quick on his feet – or in public, in general. We’re talking about a guy who hasn’t held a single solo press conference since becoming POTUS. Check this out, via Daily Wire: Pressure is mounting on President Joe Biden to hold a solo press conference after he has set a modern-day record of 42 days without holding one. Even left-wing publications like CNN are calling out Biden for his lack of transparency, with host Jake Tapper tweeting: [CNN reporter Kevin Liptak] notes that an analysis of the past 100 years shows President Biden’s 15 most recent predecessors all held a formal solo press conference within 33 days of taking office. Biden has not and it’s day 42.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/AZachParkinson/status/1367171678036451333?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367171678036451333%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fquestions-mount-after-biden-sets-modern-record-with-no-solo-press-conferences And here’s the clip from Wednesday where the White House feed cuts out after Biden says he’d be happy to answer questions… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1367303322697400322
