I’m amazed at how easy it is for Democrats to spend other people’s money.

By her advocacy for raising the minimum wage, I’ll assume that Rep. Lynn Woolsey is a liberal redistributionist.

In her Sun article Sept. 30, “Working poor shouldn’t be forced to live on $15,000 per year,” she said, “The very least we can do, at a time when so many Americans are struggling, is to give minimum-wage earners a raise.” Who are the “we” she’s talking about? She clearly makes my point regarding spending other people’s money.

She should have no authority to grant a raise to anyone who she has not hired. But as usual, these types of politicians feel the need to insert themselves into the affairs of business.
