Remember: New Reports Confirm $15 Minimum Wage Bill Will Cost Americans 1.3 Million Jobs

How do Democrats feel about this?

A $15 minimum wage for low-skilled workers sounds good in theory. If companies can afford it, then do it. But most businesses can’t afford it. That’s why there is such pushback.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that spiking wages will cause companies to cut back workers’ hours, stop hiring, raise prices, and potentially go out of business entirely. And yet, uninformed liberals keep fighting the fight just to hear their own voices.

From Daily Caller:

Trending: Ocasio-Cortez Upset That Non-Citizens Won’t Get $1200 Coronavirus Stimulus Checks

House Democrats’ proposal to raise the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour would most likely leave 1.3 million Americans jobless by 2025, according to a study released Monday by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO).

Noting a “considerable uncertainty” about the impact a $15 per hour minimum wage would have on employment, the CBO estimated that “there is about a two-thirds chance that the change in employment would lie between about zero and a reduction of 3.7 million workers” by 2025, with the median estimate being 1.3 million jobless Americans.

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 is 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?

Of course, raising the minimum wage also forces businesses to cut back workers’ hours and/or sttop hiring altogether, but, shhh! Alexandria doesn’t want to hear that!

And yet, AOC still calls for a $15 minimum wage.

Look:

Croissants at LaGuardia are going for SEVEN DOLLARS A PIECE ????

Yet some people think getting a whole hour of personal, dedicated human labor for $15 is too expensive??

Reactions:

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

GOP taking every tweet so earnestly, making my point for me. It’s not an argument against the price of a croissant – it’s about the value of human worth.

But I guess that idea is foreign to them since their policies treat people as disposable anyway ????????‍♀️

And the reaction that wins the day…

KILLSHOT!

Save conservative media!

Watch: 2020 Democrat Joe Biden Thinks COVID-19 Is Called the ‘Luhan’ Virus

It’s Wuhan, Joe. Wu-han.

More often than not, 2020 liberal frontrunner Joe Biden doesn’t know what he’s saying. If he does, he’s not doing a great job of communicating his thoughts with the American people. You’d think his campaign would keep him out of the spotlight, considering he has his party’s nomination all but secured. But nope. Joe is still doing interviews and saying silly things that prove he has no business within 500 feet of the White House.

From Breitbart: Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) is refusing to listen to the advice of the nation’s leading medical experts, continuing his opposition to travel bans in order to stop the spread of the coronavirus in the United States. President Donald Trump’s administration has implemented travel bans on China, Iran, and most of Europe to stop the outbreak of the coronavirus in the U.S. Leading medical experts said this week that 30 states now have coronavirus cases due to international travel with Europe, from where 70 percent of the world’s new cases are now originating.

Michael Rapaport will never win an award for being politically brilliant. Accordingly, the actor isn’t likely to be named the most handsome man on earth, either. Once again, Rapaport has decided to show the nation that he’s not only ugly on the outside, but on the inside, too. Check this out, via The Blaze: Far-left actor Michael Rapaport — who earlier this week called first lady Melania Trump a “dumb animal” — dropped a payload of F-bombs against President Donald Trump and most of his offspring Wednesday, including his teen son Barron, and wanted to see them all exposed to the coronavirus.
