As two major pieces of legislation make their way through the Louisiana legislature, the question begs to be asked: How can some lawmakers, on one hand, be in favor of increasing the state's minimum wage, but, at the same time, vote for a 17 cent a gallon increase in the gas tax? Aren't these lawmakers - the vast majority of whom are Democrats - voting to take money away from the same people they claim to by trying to help?

101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty - using New Orleans Dem Troy Carter as an example - ask...where's the logic (or morality) in government making employers give workers more money, then that same government taking it away from them?
