LETTER: Hypocrisy of liberal thinkingI have always had the believe that to be a good liberal, progressive or Democrat you have to suspend commonsense and be immune to claims of hypocrisy.
I have always had the believe that to be a good liberal, progressive or Democrat you have to suspend commonsense and be immune to claims of hypocrisy.
The latest examples of this are the attempts of these people to pass legislation that would require employers to pay their employees a “living wage” — whatever that is.
At the same time liberals like our own Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Rep. Gwenn Moore blindly support a law requiring employers to lay off people or cut their hours to comply with Obamacare. What good is a living wage to these people with only a part-time job or no job at all?
When I asked them to explain this, I received a letter explaining how beneficial the Affordable Care Act will be to Americans. This further proves the hypocrisy of liberals. They claim how this law will benefit us all while at the same time they are receiving an exemption from this same law. Are we to believe that these faithful public servants are willing to sacrifice these great benefits that they have forced on the rest of us?
