California Democratic congresswoman Barbara Lee expressed support for a $26 minimum wage in her state a move Republican congressman Andy Harris encouraged, assuming jobs would rapidly flee California to his state of Maryland.
Lee and Harris appeared Friday on CNNs Crossfire, hosted by former Obama advisor Van Jones and former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. The panel discussed the proposed increase in the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 per hour.
Let me ask you this question, youre a good advocate for this, Gingrich asked Lee. The mayor of Seattle is proposing that the minimum wage ought to go up to $15 an hour.

Newt is laughing at her
That will be $35 for your Big Mac combo, please.
I should run for office and propose $100 minimum wage.
If $26/hr makes sense to this idiot, why not $500/hr. Clearly, in her mind, the cost of labor has absolutely no impact on unemployment rates or prices, so...hell...go big, or go home...$1000/hr it is!
If I were her Republican opponent, I would do her one better and claim the minimum wage should be raised to $50/hour - so then all workers could be in the 1%.
Even idiot leftists would understand the joke.
The original post is satire, right?
If it doesn’t affect the economy, why not 1000 an hour?
$12,203,055,503,595,283,854,383,872,384,293,483,238,404,020 an hour or you are a racist.
How stingy is she not to agree to $52?
Lets make it $1 Hundred Zillion Billion an hour!!
Why stop at $26.00?
Once you uncouple the wage paid from the value of the work performed there is no reason to limit the wage.
Just boost it to $70,000 so everyone can work one hour and go home for the year.
Just think of the money the government would save on welfare!
For some bizzarre reason I just flashed back to the old Eddie Murphy comedy/fantasy routine when he was talking about him and his buddies getting drunk and jokingly voting for Jessie Jackson, then sobering up the next day to the horror that he’d won.
(what fools we have running the joint...only they're not the fools...we are)
What private sector business experience does Blah Blah Lee have?
Dems want milk to cost $30! A movie ticket is already $10...
In Europe, they are promoting a basic wage for everyone, whether they work or not.
What do you think the incentive will be for working or staying in school?
It would be the downfall of modern society. Productivity would be dismal or none existent.
Barbara “Commie” Lee
