Is Mitt Romney a Liberal?
By: Larry Walker, Jr.
As Economist Thomas Sowell relays, in his piece entitled, A Defining Moment, "Mitt Romney has come out in support of indexing the minimum wage law, to have it rise automatically to keep pace with inflation."
But according to Dr. Sowell,
"We have gotten so used to seeing unemployment rates of 30 or 40 percent for black teenage males that it might come as a shock to many people to learn that the unemployment rate for sixteen- and seventeen-year-old black males was just under 10 percent back in 1948. Moreover, it was slightly lower than the unemployment rate for white males of the same age."

So what happened? Liberals imposed a series of minimum wage laws, virtually assuring today's devastating rates of black teenage unemployment. So is Mitt Romney a Liberal? I can't say for sure, but he's most definitely not a conservative.
Thats right, lie to us Mitt. For we must defeat Obama at all costs even if that means deceiving and destroying the Conservative movement, in the process. Will a real conservative please stand up and challenge this walking disaster before its too late?
Will Mitt Romney Repeal Obamacare?

Washington State indexed by union backed initiative about 7 years ago. It is based on cost of living in Seattle, the highest in the state. $ 9.04 / hour is the 2012 minimum wage, up $0.30 from last year. It destroys small businesses. The unions pushed this POS because they get an unnegotiated raise as their wages are based on a rate above the minimum wage.
