Yeah TopGun; she knows what she'll say too when the food prices and everything else goes up because of her bill; she'll do just like a good little liberal and "blame it on the businesses!" That's all they do; blame someone else for their own bad decisions/bad bills.

With all due respect Delegate Campbell, you are dead wrong about the minimum wage increase. It is a proven fact that every time the minimum wage goes up, everything on the store shelves go up with it. Business owners have to compensate for the higher wages, and they do it through price increases passed on to the consumer. Raising the minimum wage is nothing more than a band aid on a gaping wound. It may slow the bleeding down a bit, but it won't stop it. The same applies to raising the minimum wage. It only helps for s short time until the prices catch up with the increase and then, the minimum wage workers are no better off than they were.

What we need is price controls, not a temporary fix designed to make the politicians feel good so they can sleep better at night. Have you ever heard the old saying, "Politicians get the poor to vote for them, and the rich to give them money, and at the same time they are telling each of them they are protecting one from the other?"
