Obozo was in my state yesterday stumping for money and more blue adulation to stoke his massive ego, and one of the things he praised the state for, in his speech, was the minimum wage hike the donkey controlled political machine foisted on an already abused private sector. The reality on the ground in “The People’s Republic of Connecticut” is that decades of democrat control have devastated the economy. That article is from early 2013, and things have gotten worse: much worse.
Businesses and skilled labor have been leaving the state at frightening numbers. The productive sector has been shrinking due the constant state of assault it is under by the “Tax and spend” vote buying party. If the dismal economic conditions that stupid collectivist, class warfare based, wealth redistribution scams driven, political opportunism driven have caused Connecticut were only here, one could make the argument that this comparison was unfair, but the fact of the matter is that the pattern persists throughout the major blue states that have been owned lock, stock, and barrel by the democratic party. The deeper the entrenched blue stupidity, the worse off, in practically every single aspect that matters, the place is.
The “Raise the minimum wage to help the downtrodden” cry has replaced the “It’s for the children and if you block it you hate children” bullshit the left used a while back to force people to go along with their stupid shit. It’s nothing but red meat to the envious and negative in its impact on anyone but the democrat politicians and the union bosses that would stand to profit from the automatic raise in wages, and thus union fees, tied to their minimum wage based contract. But these fucking class warriors can keep pretending that they are doing this shit because they care for the poor. What a lie.
