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:

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!

Biden’s Brother’s Firm Received $1.5 Billion In Government Contracts, Had Zero Experience

Seems like that could be a big problem…

A recently released book details how multiple members of the Biden family became rich thanks to Joe Biden’s position as vice president of the United States. In other words, Joe apparently leveraged his public position as one of the most powerful men in the world to his advantage, which in turn benefitted his relatives. Yeah, that’s kind of a problem. Here’s what’s up, via Breitbart: A firm employing James Biden, the younger brother of former Vice President Joe Biden, received more than $1.5 billion in government-backed contracts during the Obama administration. The dovetailing of James Biden’s professional life with his brother’s political influence are extensively detailed in Peter Schweizer’s new book—Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite. CONTINUED: In 2010, shortly after a disastrous attempt at running a hedge fund with his nephew Hunter, James Biden entered the construction and international development industry. Even though he lacked background in either, James secured a position as executive vice president at the newly formed HillStone International, LLC. The firm, which was a subsidiary of the long struggling Hill International, was unique for a multitude of reasons. What more do Democrats need to know about Biden? Are there any gaffes, racial or just plain ignorant, that he has yet to make? Has he ever done anything to benefit the United States during his decades in public service? Come on, people. When is enough enough? Get over the hatred of Trump so America can finally move forward. WATCH: Woah. Watch Joe Biden attack Barack Obama’s foreign policy credentials. https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1204047480809279488?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1204047480809279488&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F Reactions: And yet the man had no idea his son was using his connection to get big paying Burisma job. The more I see of Joe the less I like him. And yet the man had no idea his son was using…

Undercover Video Shows Bernie Staffer Wants to Kill the Rich, Put Republicans In Camps

Any other requests?

Bernie Sanders’ campaign is filled with men and women who not only hate America, but with people who want to see certain Americans imprisoned for thinking differently than they do. That would be called fascism, folks. The saddest part is that the left won’t acknowledge this nonsense from team Bernie. Instead, they’ll continue to prop him up as the greatest presidential candidate the country has seen since Lincoln. Go figure. Check this out, Daily Wire: James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released new bombshell undercover footage on Tuesday that appeared to show another paid member of 2020 Democratic Party presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ campaign promoting violence against political opponents and against successful people. The undercover video produced by Project Veritas allegedly shows Martin Weissgerber, South Carolina field organizer for the campaign, talking about wanting to kill wealthy people and wanting to throw Republicans into camps. VIDEO: https://twitter.com/JamesOKeefeIII/status/1219620664505593856?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1219620664505593856&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fanother-bernie-staffer-allegedly-promotes-violence-kill-the-rich-put-republicans-in-camps Like everyone else running for president opposite Donald Trump, Bernie has no clue about what he speaks. It’s really that simple. From Daily Wire: Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders announced a new timeline to avoid climate change disaster during MSNBC’s presidential debate on Wednesday night, saying that there are only “eight or nine years” left. Sanders’ claim comes as socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has repeatedly claimed over the last year that there are only 12 years left to implement radical climate change policies before irreversible climate changes take place. Bernie Sanders just hit the fast-forward button on Ocasio-Cortez’s doomsday clock, now says that we only have “8 or 9 years” left before cities go under water and hundreds of millions of climate refugees destabilize national security https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1197353566593146880?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1197353566593146880&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbernie-sanders-announces-new-timeline-to-avoid-climate-change-catastrophe During a recent interview with a left-wing outlet, Sanders made it clear to those who weren’t yet aware: he is not a capitalist. Funny enough, though, Bernie…
