Who could possibly think raising the minimum wage ANY percent is a constructive policy? Someone without CLUE NUMBER ONE about economics, that's who--and that means ANYONE who is a Democrat-Progressive-Liberal-Leftist or parasite who sits home waiting for the monthly government check. THAT's who.

Remember, the Democrats took control of Congress in 2006. In 2007, the recession started. Coincidence? Ummm......maybe not so much.

By far the best line from this week's dueling State of the Union messages came from Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. Nice and simple, and right to the point:

"Presidents in both parties -- from John F. Kennedy to Ronald Reagan -- have known that our free-enterprise economy is the source of our middle-class prosperity."

That's a brilliant summary of pro-growth policies, on the supply-side and in a free-market context.

Kennedy slashed tax rates and held down the budget. So did Ronald Reagan, who borrowed Kennedy's ideas: smaller government, lower tax-rate incentives and a thriving middle class, where the economic pie grows ever larger....
