If You Notice That $9 Is More Than $7.25, Are You A Communist?

In Tuesday’s State of the Union address, President Obama pointed out that you can work for 40 hours a week at minimum wage and still live in squalid poverty, and suggested that we raise it from $7.25 to $9 per hour by 2015, and also index it to inflation.

Updated at bottom. Some particularly silly people have found a possible way around this upcoming debt-ceiling debacle, a solution that is almost as crazy as the fact that we have a routine that involves regular debt-ceiling debacles.

Long story short, the idea is that if the House Republicans won’t let the Treasury pay the bills we have already accrued, the secretary of the Treasury can use a legislative loophole to mint a platinum coin, say it’s worth a trillion bucks, and deposit it into the bank, for paying bills (and possibly hookers). And — surprise! — the concept completely eludes Fox News. Read more on Would Somebody Explain To Fox News How Money Works Please (UPDATE)…
