So Now They Want to Eliminate the Minimum Wage?

Yes sir, the Tea Party is full of ideas as to how to improve life around here:

In Virginia, dissatisfaction on the right with former Sen. George Allen (R-VA) is causing many GOP activists to consider alternatives in the 2012 Republican Senate primary. The likely beneficiary of this discontent is Tea Party leader Jamie Radtke, who is positioning herself as the über-conservative alternative to Allen.

ThinkProgress sat down with Radtke this past weekend at The Awakening 2011, a gathering of social conservatives held at Liberty University. During the conversation, we discussed the role of the minimum wage in America. Radtke argued that “government setting price controls rather than letting the free market set it I think is a bad policy.” Radtke went on to contend that the “time has come and gone” when women were underpaid, employers were “taking advantage of employees,” and concern about factory conditions was justified. As a result, Radtke agreed that the minimum wage has outlived its usefulness.
