    with the corpoate media. Norah slow-down-L on MSNBC was just complaining to her guest about the "ripple effect" if the dems increase the minimum wage. She cites higher prices at restaurants and hotels for the rest of us if this happens. OMG, she is just pathetic. Norah, go out to your high priced steak house and stew over your $45.00 fillet instead of your $44.95 fillet. Laughable, sad. Is this what passes for journalism now?

      The price of something is not determined by its cost, but rather by how much someone will pay. Granted, with all those extra dollars entering the economy from minimum-wage workers, the balance is tipped a little, in that demand goes up, but that's just tough for us "rich folks"; the balance is way too far in our favor right now anyway.
