Naturally, the results were typical of a president who cares about voters solely on Election Day.
During a Google Hangout session on Friday, fry cook Darnell Summers told President Obama that his hours were cut due to the Affordable Care Act. “We were broken down to part time to avoid paying health insurance,” he said. Summers explained that he makes $7.25 an hour and has been on strike four times seeking a wage increase. “We can’t survive, it’s not livin’,” he said.
The president responded by urging states to increase the minimum wage. “I am working to encourage states, governors, mayors, state legislators to raise their own minimum wage,” Obama said.
The president did not address Summers’s comments about the healthcare law.
Of course he didn’t, because 1) he could not defend his ridiculous healthcare law, and 2) he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about Mr. Summers’ problem. Worse still, the “president” throws out a ludicrous argument about raising the minimum wage, which would cause businesses to lay off more workers, and make Mr. Summers’ problems worse.
