LOWER MINIMUM WAGE. Michele Bachmann gave a "speech" today about how she thinks that the minimum wage of $7.25 an hour is too HIGH. IS SHE HIGH? She wants to lure back corporations, which have outsourced to foreign countries because they figured out that they can pay slave wages for lower quality work. Thus, Bachmann wants to turn American people into MORE of a slave country to the corporations, than it ALREADY IS. Also, by lowering minimum wages, it also minimizes the effectiveness of a college degree, in fact, a HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA with then be worthless.
From the WSJ:
Federal regulators will propose removing the “Fairness Doctrine,” a controversial, if little used, regulation on political speech from the books this week, the Federal Communications Commission said Monday.
The Fairness Doctrine, which has been around since 1949, required licensed broadcasters to give equal time to differing political views. The rule was introduced during an era in which there were far fewer media outlets and regulators wanted to ensure that listeners had access to both sides of political debate.
The FCC abandoned the policy in 1987 during the Reagan administration, saying it violated broadcasters’ free speech rights, but the regulation remained on the books.
