This obvious disregard for anyone not in the elite political class comes from a looting bureaucrat who has NEVER HELD A PRODUCTIVE JOB IN HIS LIFE and has no idea how to run any business.

"Rep. Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) said Sunday that, while he’s “all for” small businesses, those that can’t afford to pay their employees $15 an hour are essentially undesirable.

Khanna made the remarks in an interview on CNN’s “Inside Politics,” in response to a question about how hard it might be for many small businesses to afford increased labor costs, if the federal minimum wage is raised to $15 an hour.

“Businesses like Amazon and McDonald’s, for example, can and perhaps should, pay more, but I’m wondering, what is your plan for smaller businesses?” CNN’s Abby Phillip asked. “How does this, in your view, affect mom and pop businesses who are just struggling to keep their doors open, keep workers on the payroll right now?”

“Well, they shouldn’t be doing it by paying people low wages,” Khanna replied. “We don’t want low-wage businesses. Most successful small businesses can pay a fair wage.”"

Rep. Ro Khanna is a looting, meddling statist scumbag. The world would be a better place if he dropped into a chasm in the next earthquake.

    I never met a Congressman that was a really successful businessman. Why do we let them pass these stupid laws? We can vote them out of office, providing we have legal elections ever again.

    Who in hell made him the wage czar? Mandates on any wage is destructive to business and a sure way to increase inflation...which is also destructive to business.
