Seven Days of Paid Sick Days

Obama favors requiring employers to allow for a minimum of seven paid sick days. There are so many things wrong - where to even being? First of all, under what explanation of the Federal government does it have the right to mandate such a thing (theoretically, practically, logically)? Does Obama look at the European/socialist model and say, "I like that, let's emulate it"? It boggles the mind.

Yes, of course, it's great in theory. Most economic notions on the left have a kind-hearted rationale. But it simply doesn't work. Why not 10 paid sick days, and 30 paid vacation days? Why not 20 and 50? In fact, why not free health care for all? Oh wait, he thinks he can deliver that too.
