Discussion: Tim Pawlenty: Republicans Should Support A Minimum Wage Hike

Discussion for article #222215

“goes too far and too fast, Pawlenty said. I wish they would work with Republicans to find a reasonable compromise on this issue.”

Yes we wouldn’t want to get anyone an albino hair over the poverty line too soon now would we. And this guy is what passes for compassionate in that party.

Thanks for trying Tim. Remember supporting a raise is not the same as a rising star in the GOP. Exit right as soon as you can.

Timmy, Timmy;
Nobody on the right or left listened to you when you were MN Gov…
Nobody’s gonna listen to you now…especially when you’re traitorously proposing helping out the ‘takers’ which will alienate you from your right flank…and the left flank knows you’re a moron already.

Yeah, because the problem is that Democrats just won’t work out a minimum wage increase with the people who are wholly against the very existence of the minimum wage. That’s the real problem.

Obviously no one important goes on the scarborough wasted of time show.

Of course they should support a raise in the minimum wage even if their support is to simply remove an election year issue from the Democrats. Just like they should have allowed taxes to be raised in 2011 which would have eliminated the President’s entire economic agenda from the 2012 election cycle.

Of course we all know that as soon as the minimum wage is raised to $10.10 an hour, the democrats will be back claiming that a living wage is actually $15 dollars an hour.

Wow. Pawlenty with support for the minimum wage and Santorum with the “be nice to poor people” gambit (http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/rick-santorum-poor-gop-democrats). Guess who’s running for President!
