Oh, dear. Sen. Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren (D-Mass.) posed that question during a senate hearing last week. Wonder where she got that idea?

“If we started in 1960, and we said that, as productivity goes up — that is, as workers are producing more — then the minimum wage is going to go up the same. And, if that were the case, the minimum wage today would be about $22 an hour. So, my question, Mr. Dube, is what happened to the other $14.75?”

That Twitter user had no words, but others sure do! Take it away, Twitter.

Can you imagine how much a meal at McDonalds would cost if the minimum wage were $22/hour? http://t.co/1DVdhl7miK

Why does Elizabeth Warren want to ban everybody whose marginal productivity is below $22/hr from having a job? http://t.co/rN8AQoG5nh

Elizabeth Warren thinks the federal minimum wage should be $22/hr. If you still think she's sane, there is something wrong with you.

Our sides would be aching, if it wasn’t so depressing.
