I recall the perky Katie Couric asking the ceo of Ford about reducing the disparity in damage between big SUVs and, say, the SmartCar. He said that Ford had no plans to change the laws of physics. Well, Senator Harkin the ceo's of small businesses, including moms and pops, have no plans to change the laws of economics. You, sir, are dumber than a box of rocks.

Senator Harkin and his peers are a compelling argument for the repeal of the 17th Amendment.

People of Iowa: I know you are not that dumb! What Gives?

In an op-ed for USA Today, Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) says that a $9 per hour minimum wage is not enough. He says, “While I was heartened to hear President Obama make the minimum wage a centerpiece of his State of the Union Address, I believe that his proposal of $9 per hour does not go far enough to ensure that working families can make ends meet.”

But might I ask you Mr. Harkin how the small business owners that employ these minimum wage workers will afford more than $9 an hour? What now small business owners aren’t suffering in...
