Before the Buena Vista Labor Day parade started, I was standing on a corner wearing a Democratic t-shirt and holding this sign when the union-hating Congressman Cline walked past.
Me: “Hey, Ben, this is what it’s all about!”
Cline: “How about getting your party to support a work ethic?”
The implication being, I suppose, that Democrats are lazy welfare cheats always looking for ways to live off government handouts. (In fact it’s low-wage employers like Walmart and McDonald’s that are subsidized by the government.)
Unfortunately Cline was gone before it occurred to me to respond: “How about getting your party to support a living wage?”
So for the record, that’s my response, Congressman.
