BRAT = PURE ESTABLISHMENT WALL STREET AND ANDERSON CONSULTING AS THEY GET!
David Brat = MILTON FRIEDMAN FREE MARKET WALL STREET FRAUDSTER DOING GOD’S WORK!
GOP = FREE-MARKETS + LIBERTY = FREEDOM + LIBERTY FOR MULTINATIONAL BILLIONAIRES TO ROB 99+% OF AMERICANS WITH ZERO PERSECUTION!
ODD THING IS BRAT IS MORE WALL STREET AND ENRON THAN CANTOR! “DOING GOD’S WORK?” LIKE AYN RAND!
HE WORKER FOR ANDERSON CONSULTING!
GOP POLLING = MASSIVE FAILURES = LIKE ROVE!
Dave Brat: ‘I Don’t Have A Well-Crafted Response’ On Minimum Wage = “…we were just going to chat today about the celebratory aspects…I love all the policy questions, I’m happy to do more, but I just wanted to talk about the victory…”
Despite his background in economics, Brat = NO answer on federal minimum wage
BRAT: “I’m a free market guy….distorted from too many regulations….$2 trillion of regulatory problems…distortion after distortion…our labor markets are broken.”
BRAT: “…take the long-run graph over 200 years of the wage rate, it cannot differ from your nation’s productivity….you can’t assert (raise min wage) unless you raise their productivity..” US PRODUCTIVITY AT RECORD HIGHS BUT MIN WAGE STAGNATES FOR A DECADE!
BRAT: “…According to the Center for Economic and Policy Research, the federal minimum wage in the United States should actually be almost $22 an hour if it had kept up with increases in worker productivity.”
Cantor = Widespread backing of the WALLL STREET establishment
Brat = LOVES WALL STREET’S “GOD’S WORK” = AYN RAND STYLE COLD HEARTED GREED!
GOP House = Stunned! Do mad dash for Cantor’s position as majority leader. = McCarthy (R-CA) + Rodgers (R-WA) says NO + Sessions (R-TX) + Hensarling (R-TX)
DAVID BRAT = Virginia Bankers Association + Virginia Association of Community Banks + “God and Advanced Mammon – Can Theological Types Handle Usury and Capitalism?” + “An Analysis of the Moral Foundations in Ayn Rand” + “Economics and the Oil Crisis” + “Adam Smith’s God and the End of Economics” + “GDP Growth and Stock Market Valuation Limits…” + “Milton Friedman’s Methodology of Positive Economics…” + Central Bank Independence And Economic Growth
Dave Brat = cast Cantor as a Washington insider who isn’t conservative enough. = Used endorsements from conservative talk radio + tea party activists angry at Cantor. = Brat said Cantor spends too much time in Washington and lost touch with his conservative base back home. = “The job title is representative. It’s hard to represent people when you haven’t met them.” = Much of the campaign has centered on immigration = Brat accused Cantor of being a top cheerleader for “amnesty” for immigrants in the U.S. illegally.
