When President Obama proposed tax increases, free community college and other pipe dreams, Libertarians shifted in their seats, maybe even turned off the speech altogether.

Arvin Vohra, vice chair, Libertarian National Committee composed and presented the Libertarian Party reaction, posting it to the party’s YouTube.

“Mr. President, in your State of the Union address, you propose to make Big Government even bigger,” he said.

“Mr. President, your attempts to raise the minimum wage will destroy one of the most important forms of education in this country. Many young people develop responsibility and marketable skills in entry-level, minimum-wage jobs. Those skills make workers more attractive to future employers,” he added.

In an interview with Joshua Cook for BenSwann.com, Vohra explained that the Republican Party is not in favor of raising the federal minimum wage, but it’s a show: “The Republicans are making a big show fighting the federal minimum wage, but in states that they control where there is a Republican governor and Republican legislature, those states still have a minimum wage,” he said. The minimum wage, he explained, takes opportunity from students, from the poorest people who are trying to get a foothold in the job market, recent felons who are trying to get their lives back together.

“If you think that minimum wage damages opportunity, you should get rid of the minimum wage. And Republicans haven’t tried to do that at all,” he said.

He said that Libertarians would also fight the mandatory sick leave requirement for employers. “That kind of micro regulation is what is going to kill jobs,” he added.

He said the Libertarian Party and its candidates is key. “We have so many Libertarian candidates in so many states that are working to get rid of these regulations and taxes that are getting in the way of jobs,” Vohra said.

Libertarian-leaning conservatives who continue voting Republican need to make their real voices heard: But when you cast a vote for a Libertarian, you’re telling them very clearly that you have neither my permission nor my approval to grow or sustain big government. Shrink it now.

And that right there is the message that people need to be sending,” he said.

And that’s exactly the message Vohra sent to the President with his speech.
