Income Issues Reveal Democrat Hypocrisy

Democrats’ relentless efforts to tell Americans what to do might be a few microns less annoying if they obeyed the rules and exhortations that they inflict on everyone else. Alas, hypocrisy has become a core Democrat principle.

Consider one pot that they pound loudly: raising the minimum wage.

“We owe it to workers across the country to make sure our minimum wage is set to a level that works for them and their families,” Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., insisted last month, as she introduced the Raise the Wage Act. It would boost the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $12.00 per hour by 2020 — a 66 percent hike.

Added House co-sponsor Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va.: “We can’t build a strong economy on the backs of impoverished workers.” Thirty-two senators have co-sponsored this bill as have 165 House members.

Amazingly, the Employment Policies Institute reports that 94 percent of these 197 Democrats pay their interns zero. Sen. Murray pays her interns bupkis, as does Congressmen Scott.

According to EPI (minimumwage.com), such minimum-wage-hike cheerleaders as Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., House Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi of California, and Democrat National Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida also pay their interns nothing.

But wait, House Democrat Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland responds, “Interns will gain practical experience.”

True. But interns could do this and make more than $0.00 per hour if their liberal bosses did not subject them to what Karl Marx denounced as “the alienation of labor.”

Of course, if private employers tried to offer interns real-life know-how, marketable skills, and, say, $5.00 per hour, they would be prosecuted.

The Gang of 197 should explain why it’s OK for them to pay interns $0.00 per hour, yet it’s a federal crime for others to pay them up to $7.24, even if they want to make some money, rather than none. Any private payment would be less exploitive than the “wages” of these “defenders of the downtrodden.”

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton banged a related skillet in South Carolina. “Too many women earn less than men on the job,” she said Wednesday. “When a woman is short-changed, the entire family is short-changed.”

Too bad Clinton short-changed her female staffers.

Although Clinton complains that “women who work full-time, year round, earn just 77 cents for every dollar that a man makes,” she paid her female Senate employees just 72 cents for every dollar their male colleagues saw.

The Washington Free Beacon’s analysis of Clinton’s Senate expenditures demonstrated that her women earned median annual salaries of $40,791.55; men pocketed $56,499.93. Thus, Hillary Clinton’s $15,708.38 gender pay gap favored men over women.

Obama also plays the equal-pay cowbell.

“Ensuring equal pay for women is a no-brainer,” Obama declared last month. He failed this test.

“The average male White House employee currently earns about $88,600, while the average female White House employee earns about $78,400,” The Washington Post’s Zachary Goldfarb reported last July. “That is a gap of 13 percent.”

Citing White House data, the Post added, “In 2009, male employees made an average of about $82,000, compared to an average of $72,700 earned by female employees — also a 13 percent wage gap.”

So, after five years of pay-gap chest beating, Obama’s “change” equals zero. Literally.

Obama this month bellyached that “those who are doing better and better . . . are withdrawing from sort of the commons.” He further moaned: “Kids start going to private schools. Kids start working out at private clubs instead of the public parks.”

Huh?

Obama’s kids entered Sidwell Friends, Washington’s poshest private school, early in his reign. As for those evil private clubs, Farm Neck, Reflection Bay, and Royal Hawaiian are just three privately owned clubs where Obama has golfed as president. Surely some kids work out at those places.

Democrats, including Hillary Clinton, should stop making fools of themselves by following her advice: “Our credibility depends on practicing what we preach.”

National Review: Elizabeth Warren Made Over $240K Flipping Foreclosed Homes

A new report claims Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and her husband made thousands of dollars by buying and selling foreclosed homes.

According to National Review, Warren and her husband took in at least $240,500 by flipping houses between 1993 and 1998. And she allegedly did so before stitching together her political career by standing up for everyday Americans — particularly in the face of bigger fish trying to make money off the lower class.

Warren, a Democrat, has also campaigned for consumer protection and helped spearhead the creation of the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. And she’s talked about the economy and helping Americans improve their financial situations.

The National Review story claims Warren and her husband flipped at least five houses in Oklahoma City for profit, including a home built in 1924 that they sold for $115,000 more than they paid for it.

"I don’t think it’s right, but I don’t really know much about it. … You flip houses to make a profit, so I can’t really fault [Warren] much," the granddaughter of the previous owner of the home built in 1924 told National Review. "I think my grandmother made a mistake by selling it for so cheap. … She had worked hard all her life and was a self-made woman."

Warren has said she voted Republican before moving left in the mid-1990s.

Another report, meanwhile, claimed Warren was paid $90,000 to serve as a witness in a 2000 investor-state dispute settlement case prompted by the North American Free Trade Agreement. Warren and other Democrats have stood against President Barack Obama’s recent trade moves as he brokers a deal for the U.S. to enter a trade agreement with Pacific-rim nations.

An attorney who worked on the 2000 case criticized Warren, saying she "did not appear to have any qualms about participating in this process that she now finds appalling."

Warren, who was voted into the Senate by defeating incumbent Scott Brown in the 2012 election, is also making a push for the government to regulate how car dealers provide auto loans to consumers.

Warren has resisted several calls to join the 2016 presidential race.

GOOD !

Bernie Sanders: A 90 Percent Tax Rate Isn’t Too High

By Jason Devaney

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Democratic candidate for president, thinks a 90 percent tax rate on the wealthiest Americans might not be too high.

Sanders made the remark during an interview with CNBC…

Sanders, a self-described socialist, served in the House from 1991-2007 before becoming a U.S senator. He is a registered independent but is running for president as a Democrat…

Sanders kicked off his presidential bid Tuesday with a speech along the shore of Lake Champlain in Burlington, Vermont.

BAD !!
