Paul Ryan whiffs on WI winimum wage

Millionaire and fancy-wine connoisseur, Paul Ryan

could not tell the NY Times what is the minimum wage in Wisconsin.

For the record, the answer is a rock bottom $7.25/hr., frozen there by Ryan right-wing GOP pal Gov. Scott Walker who has also called the minimum wage concept  "lame," but also believes $7.25 is living wage.

Easy to say when the public is paying you more than $12,000 a month, providing the Governor's mansion, airplanes, cars, drivers, expenses, etc.

More about Walker's minimum wage 'beliefs,' here, and his further attacks on the poor, here.

But back to know-nothing Ryan, a/k/a Speaker of the House of Representatives:

At the New York Times TimesTalk with , he wasn't able to answer a very simple question: "What's the minimum wage in Wisconsin?"
