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?

From The Daily Wire:

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…

One ‘Armed Person’ Arrested During J6 Rally… Turns Out to be Undercover Cop

Police in riot gear surrounded and detained a man who was armed at the J6 rally on Saturday.

Police in riot gear surrounded and detained a man who was armed at the J6 rally on Saturday, but putting a fine point on the face, it turned out he was an undercover cop.

There were only a few arrests during the J6 rally. Indeed, there were thousands of police — both in riot gear and undercover — not to mention thousands of reporters, but very few “dangerous” J^ rally goers.

Not many turned out for the rally because most knew that the corrupt law enforcement services in Washington D.C. was looking to take down anyone, for anything, real or fictional. Few real J6 supporters wanted to be mistreated by a corrupt militarized police presence, so the stayed home.

In fact, President Trump even warned people not to go to this thing. Trump called the whole event a “set up.”

“On Saturday, that’s a setup,” Trump said. “If people don’t show up they’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s a lack of spirit.’ And if people do show up they’ll be harassed.”

And he was exactly right. To show what a farcical situation the whole thing was, cops in riot gear surrounded and detained a man because he looked to be armed. And “journalists” were there to lap it all up.

Reporter Ford Fischer recorded the confrontation on video:

But then it was discovered that this doofus was an undercover operative, and the riot cops blew his cover:

What a complete joke:

Major League Baseball Moves Bat Production to Red China

Major League Baseball has fired its U.S.-based bat makers and sent the contract to the Chinese.

Published

on

Major League Baseball is no longer America’s game. Apparently, it’s China’s, now that the league has fired its U.S.-based bat makers and sent the contract to the Chinese.

Bats for MLB have been made in America for the entirety of baseball’s existence… until today.

According to Yahoo News:

When Major League Baseball hosted its “Field of Dreams” game in Iowa in August, it was a celebration of small-town America. But less than 100 miles away, a small town is worrying that its local economy, that’s centered around baseball, is getting shut out. Kris Van Cleave traveled to Caledonia, Minnesota, where a factory partially owned by MLB is closing up shop and shipping jobs overseas.

So much for the “American pastime.” So much for the one game America is most famous for.

But this is where all pro sports are headed.

Soon all the Little Leaguers will be proudly swinging those bats that are stamped “Made In China.”

What an outrage.
