Starring Mary Fallin as Obama? 

Last week, Gov. Mary Fallin signed a bill into law that prohibits cities across the state from
setting their own minimum wages. The legislation came after a group in
Oklahoma City had been collecting signatures on a petition to ask the
city to increase the minimum wage.

“Mandating
a minimum wage increase at the local level would drive businesses to
other communities and states and would raise prices for consumers,”
Fallin said in a statement.

This
is the same person who constantly criticizes the federal government and
the Obama administration for making decisions in Washington, D.C., that
should be left up to states. Apparently, Fallin believes that Oklahoma
knows better than D.C. She just doesn’t think Oklahoma City knows better
than her.
