CT Gov. Malloy Takes Michael Steele To School Over Minimum Wage

Gov. Dan Malloy knocks down every one of Michael Steele's talking points while debating the need to raise the minimum wage on this Tuesday's Hardball.

Hardball host Chris Matthews was hoping for round two between Connecticut Gov. Dannel Mallow and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, but apparently Jindal didn't want to appear on the show, so Gov. Malloy got stuck debating the need to raise the minimum wage with right-wing hack and former RNC chair, Michael Steele instead.

All I can say is that if you're a Democrat, and you find yourself debating someone like Steele in order for a producer to allow you to appear on their network, this is how you do it. He shut down Steele's talking points on the CBO report. He whacked the Republicans for having absolutely no alternatives to offer to raising the minimum wage and just saying no at every turn. And he made a compelling case for the fact that standing up for making a living wage is standing up for the working class, and you either care about lifting people out of poverty, or you don't. It's as simple as that.
