GOP Senate Candidate Wants to Abolish Federal Minimum Wage

Photo Courtesy - ABC News(WASHINGTON) -- Alaska GOP Senate candidate Joe Miller now has the solid support of the Republican establishment, but in an exclusive interview with ABC News, he makes it clear he's determined to shake up Washington and the Republican party in a big way.

"We aren't going there to play ball, we're going to make sure things get done," Miller said in a wide-ranging interview with Politico's Mike Allen and ABC's Jonathan Karl. Miller wants to roll back the power and size of the federal government to a degree not seen for 70 years or more.

When asked if there should be a federally mandated minimum wage, something that has existed since Congress passed the Fair Labor Standards Act in 1938, Miller said, "That is clearly up to the states.  The state of Alaska has a minimum wage which is higher than the federal level because our state leaders have made that determination. The minimum level again should be the state's decision."

Furthermore, in response to whether or not there should be a federal minimum wage, Miller said, "There should not be.  That is not within the scope of the powers that are given to the federal government."
