How do we know it was the right thing?
Because it has the Liberals in a total meltdown over it.
They fear their a ability to commit voter fraud has now been either eliminated or greatly reduced.
People have to show ID's to buy tobacco/alcohol, to get passports, to get jobs, and all sorts of things. People should have to show ID when it comes to picking our elected officials that shows they have the right to vote and states should have the right to make them do so.
WELL DONE SCOTUS!!!
Oh, so that's what an activist court looks like.

Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) said Tuesday that he would prefer to see the minimum wage abolished.

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), the ranking Republican on the Senate's labor committee, said in a hearing Tuesday that he would prefer to see the minimum wage abolished.

Alexander's declaration came amid a back-and-forth between a witness from the conservative Heritage Foundation and Sens. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). The trio had been debating what kind of impact a higher minimum wage would have on a theoretical worker, and it seemed Sanders wanted to know whether the witness opposed raising the minimum wage or having a minimum wage at all.(The discussion can be seen here, starting at 2:14.)

"There are some conservatives who do not believe in the concept of the minimum wage," Sanders said to the witness, James Sherk, a labor policy analyst at the think tank.

"Let me jump in," Alexander then said. "I do not believe in it."

The policy debate had been lively, with interruptions all around, and Sanders grew excited at Alexander's interjection.

"So we have a ranking member," Sanders responded. "Alright! There we go!"

Sanders turned to Alexander.

"So you do not believe in the concept of the minimum wage?"

"That's correct," Alexander responded.

"You would abolish the minimum wage?"

"Correct."

"And if someone had to work for two bucks an hour," Sanders continued, "they would work for two bucks an hour?"

Alexander went on to compare a higher minimum wage to a form of welfare. Instead of boosting it, as Congress is now considering, he suggested a common conservative alternative to a federal wage floor -- a higher earned-income tax credit.

Lamar Alexander needs to pull his head out.

Slavery was abolished in the mid-1800's.

This man has lost his mind. Perhaps he should be made to give up his six figure salary and be paid two dollars an hour, then he will find out how ridiculous he sounds, particularly as he works so few hours per year

Lamar has the nerve to want to abolish the minimum wage for millions of lower class workers when HE has the power to vote himself a raise every year or get AUTOMATIC increases.

He is flat NO GOOD !

It's Lamar Alexander that needs to earn less than minimum wage.
And it still be more than he is worth.

Abolish minimum wage, roll back child labor laws, repeal workplace safety/ health/ environmental regulations, abolish overtime laws, destroy unions, defund public schools, etc. All of these and more are on the agenda of the current Republican party, and are being funded by the wealthy and multi-national corporations and the objective is to get rid of all the workplace protections that have been won over the past century, and turn America into a third-world country in order to better exploit our resources and labor.

Large sections of the US is already a third world nation. Surprisingly, most of the poorest states voted for Romney.

Check this out: 2011

Based on congressional financial disclosure forms and calculations made available by OpenSecrets.org - The Center for Responsive Politics, Alexander's net worth as of 2011 was estimated between -$6,198,948 and $31,029,996. That averages to $12,415,524, which is higher than the average net worth of Republican Senators in 2011 of $6,358,668. His average net worth decreased by 44.91% from 2010

And he has spent his life in "public service".

The REAL Truth about the GOP:

If there is no minimum wage then it is possible to have people work for nothing.

But isn't working for nothing the same as slavery?
