    Well....ummmmm...whatever it is, its too HIGH

    Michael Steele's minimum-wage blunder - The Week

    In a discussion about the constitutionality of a federal minimum-wage policy on MSNBC's "The Last Word," Steele was asked to specify the amount, and laughed, saying it isn't "relevant" to the unemployed whether the minimum wage is $7 or $10. Host Lawrence O'Donnell said, "It's okay to say you don't know," eliciting more laughter from Steele.
    The reaction: Michael Steele has put his foot in it before, says Evan McMorris-Santoro at Talking Points Memo, but "confessing ignorance about the federal minimum wage in the midst of a campaign where Republicans are shouting 'Jobs! Jobs! Jobs!' from every rooftop" is as bad as it gets. GOP leaders who want ordinary Americans to think you care, jot this down — the federal minimum wage is $7.25 an hour.

    A minimum wage is the single most stupid thing you can do to a free market.

    I couldn't agree more. It is not a coincidence that the more the government does the more corruption occurs. Take away the federal governments power and you take away the ability of corporations and special interests to rig the game.

    I read this 3 times, took a drink of water rubbed my eyes and read it twice more.

    And it's confirmed.

    This is not just the dumbest thing I have ever heard, it's the dumbest thing ever heard.:clap2:
