On Wednesday's edition of "Washington Watch with Tony Perkins" FRC's Senior Fellow for Family Empowerment and former Mayor of Cincinnati, Ken Blackwell, joins Tony to talk about the President's commitment in his state of the Union address last night to raise the minimum wage for federal workers above 10 dollars and the affect it could have on the economy. Also, Rep. Scott Garrett (R-N.J.) will be on to give his reaction to the President's address and his comment that he will act, even without Congressional approval.  Also, FRC filed an amicus brief in the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood cases earlier today in opposition to HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. The attorney who wrote the brief for FRC, Erik Jaffe, will join Tony.
