Minimum Wage? Please take the survey and share with others. I know the media is currently consumed with the tragic and scary events in the Ukraine, but there is a big debate in Congress going on right now over raising the federal minimum wage to $10.10. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has estimated that an increase to $10.10 would pull 900,000 Americans out of poverty and increase the net income of 16.5 million low-wage workers. CBO also estimates that it could reduce employment by 500,000 jobs. I'd like everyone to take the survey below and tell me what you think. Is it better to raise incomes and pull nearly a million people out of poverty at the expense of half a million jobs that currently pay $7.25. Or is it better to keep the status quo? Please take the survey and share with others. http://wakefieldforkansas.com/your-thoughts

Can you feel the momentum? In just the past month we've nearly doubled the number of people following this page. It's exciting to know that every day more and more people are tuning in to our conversation. This tells me there is growing dissatisfaction with Lynn Jenkins and the dysfunction in Washington. Please help me grow our fan base even more. Please share this video with all of your FB friends, ask them to like our page and invite them to join our conversation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAj7ssD8m-A

We hit a nerve! Ask Lynn about Wind The Koch Brothers don't like wind energy. That we knew. Last week I had the audacity to post some facts about how the wind industry in Kansas has and will in the future significantly benefit our state economy. As a member of Congress I will champion the wind industry and work feverishly to bring more wind energy jobs to the 2nd district of Kansas. Within days of that post, the Koch Brothers swung into action. Last Friday an op-ed appeared in the Wichita Eagle written by Thomas Pyle, a Washington lobbyist for the oil and gas industry and a recent employee of Koch Industries. It was filled with distortions and misinformation as you might guess. The Koch Brothers political organization, Americans for Prosperity, now has a television ad running critical of wind energy. More misinformation. More distortions. Here is an editorial in Hutchinson News that exposes them: http://m.hutchnews.com/opinion/editorials/article_e6d05d6f-573e-5a09-8424-5fb44d0937de.html?mode=jqm The Koch's know the potential for wind energy and that Kansas is at the center for distributing this clean electricity around the country. They also understand it will cost them billions in revenue. Since going to Washington Lynn Jenkins has voted the Koch's way on every energy related bill that has come to a vote. Since going to Washington Lynn Jenkins has received over $350,000 from the oil and gas industry, much of it directly from Koch Industries. I don't think I need to connect the dots for you. Do me a favor. Go on Lynn Jenkins FB page and ask her if she supports the wind energy industry in Kansas and let me know what she says, if she says anything at all. And be sure to share this post with your FB friends so they can join the conversation

We had a great swing of SE visiting with great folks in Parsons, Pittsburgh, Frontenac and St. Paul over the last couple of days. Let me tell you, anyone who thinks there's no potential for wind energy in Kansas wasn't down here today. Wooosh! Here's a photo of Krysten from team Wakefield fighting the wind. If you have equally embarrassing wind photo please share it with me.
