Democrats Respond to CBO: Nuh-uhhhh!

by Jim Geraghty

Here’s one approach a Democrat can take in response to the CBO finding that raising the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour could eliminate 500,000 or even a million jobs: Ignore it entirely.

From the Alison Lundergan Grimes campaign:

As Kentuckians know, raising the minimum wage would create thousands of good-paying jobs in Kentucky and increase the spending power for tens of thousands of the Commonwealth’s hardworking families. The people of Kentucky are ready to vote out a Washington politician, worth over $25 million, who is asking them to believe that giving 255,000 women a raise will somehow hurt the economy.

Democrats continue to insist that their proposals are all upside and no downside. It’s like arguing with a child. “Nuh-uhhhh!”
