Accusation: "Todd Opposes the Minimum Wage"
Claire McCaskill and her liberal allies are claiming that Todd Akin opposes the minimum wage. As usual, this is a distortion of Todd's position.
Todd believes that everyone should be paid fairly. Honest work deserves honest wages. However, Todd does not believe that big government policies are the best way to ensure fair pay. Todd believes that states should be free to set their own minimum wages, rather than establishing a national minimum wage. Why should the minimum wage in Alabama be the same as it is in California or New York? Why can't Missouri set our own minimum wage? Todd Akin believes that Missouri common sense beats Washington, DC big government solutions any day.
