I Bet Grover Norquist Doesn't Like the Minimum Wage Either

Under the charming headline, "Die, Fair Share, Die," the New York Press's blog reports the comments of radical right-wing anti-government strategist Grover Norquist:
"When the government tells businesses what to do and how much to do it for, workers and consumers bear the brunt by losing jobs and facing higher prices. The 'Fair Share' bill is like prescribing leeches to cure a fever. [?!?] In removing the 'problem' of having some part-time jobs without health care, you also remove the 'problem' of having jobs, the lifeblood of economic growth," said ATR President Grover Norquist.
Yeah, don't you just hate it when government tells businesses that they have to keep safety equipment on hand, provide an honest day's pay for an honest day's work and begins to think about providing decent, affordable health benefits.

Poor Grover must really hate America.

Grover can't hear you. He's off drowning government in a bathtub.

Well, he's off drowning the parts of government that work for regular people--the parts that exist just to protect big business he's keeping.

No hugs for grover. What's he got against not dropping dead of a heart attack after an honest day's work?
