David Novstrup is always good for a laugh. The latest knee-slapper from the Senator I will replace comes from David’s appearance on last night’s Inside KELOLand, where he makes this statement about Referred Law 20, his effort to cut the minimum wage for workers under 18 from $8.55 to $7.50 an hour:
It’s really not about paying youth less [Sen. David Novstrup, Inside KELOLand, 2016.10.30, timestamp 9:35].
Referred Law 20 pays youth less. Its prime sponsor says Referred Law 20 isn’t about paying youth less.
Hmm… if a law isn’t about the thing it actually does, then what is it about?
Poor David seems as detached from reality on the practical effect of his own law as he is about the affront to voters his proposal commits by undoing a voter initiative. Unlike David, I won’t shout Liar! I’ll just shake my head and say poor David is very, very confused. I am pleased to have the opportunity to replace him in the Senate and relieve him of all this pressure to explain things he votes for.
