Default Raising minimum wage to $15 answer to obesity.

Raising the minimum wage to $15 would make President Obama happy which would make him and Hilary happy by guaranteeing the popular vote in the 2014 elections but most important the price of hamburgers would go to $3 which would reduce demand and would reduce obesity this would make Obama's wife happy because she advocates good eating habits. Of course the increased wages will make it possible increase tax revenues, which Obama can offset with Federal tax credits just as he did with the Affordable Health Law.

Gosh, I hope you've forwarded this to John Boehner. He needs some talking points!

Of course you're right. We're far better off leaving the minimum wage where it is, so that people can work their tails off at two or three part-time minimum wage jobs that still don't pull their families above the poverty line. Meanwhile, the GOP can continue to claim that people who do this are nothing more than lazy freeloaders at the public teat as they stand in line for greatly reduced food stamp benefits.

Things are perfect the way they are, aren't they? In fact, maybe we can cut food stamps back even more.
