I must have Stockholm Syndrome. It doesn’t make me mad anymore when Democrats in California’s legislature pass something boneheaded that will no doubt be signed by our zombie Governor.
The California legislature approved an increase in the minimum wage from $8 to $10 an hour late last week. The hike will be phased in over the next three years adding $1 in 2014 and another in 2016, according to Raw Story.
See, I understand. When your entire career is paid for by unions and your voter base is losers, you have to do things to pay off the unions and flatter the losers. It isn’t much different from the Obama Administration.
This will be a disaster for everyone in the long run, just like every other policy pushed by Democrats and their lobbyists, but the reality is that the politicians are sent to Sacramento to carry out the will of the people, and the will of the people of California means bad ideas that never work as intended.
Enjoy the new cost of a Big Mac folks. The people get the government that they deserve.
Update: Looks like everyone is on Twitter these days. Thanks Mr. President.
