The below piece was first published on Rampart Media back in February of 2013. Apparently, the President is reaching back into his emotional, fact-less rhetoric in order to stir wage envy for the 2014 elections. Here is what I wrote then:
We know our economy’s stronger when we reward an honest day’s work with honest wages. But today, a full-time worker making the minimum wage earns $14,500 a year. Even with the tax relief we’ve put in place, a family with two kids that earns the minimum wage still lives below the poverty line. That’s wrong. Tonight, let’s declare that, in the wealthiest nation on Earth, no one who works full time should have to live in poverty — and raise the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour.”
Oh! The horror! The horror I say! Barack Obama's demagoguery knows no bounds. This is just the latest example of emotional rhetoric from the Campaigner in Chief. Let's look at some Obama kryptonite, i.e. data.
