The markets always seem to like gridlock in Washington. But has Democratic control of Congress actually been good for business?
Three experts discussed the minimum wage hike, prescription drug costs, and tax breaks for big oil from different ends of the spectrum on "Power Lunch."
Daniel Mitchell of the CATO Institute feels that gridlock is good because the Democrats, had they been able to fulfill their agenda, would have caused higher taxes and more business regulation.
"Thank god for gridlock. Let's hope they fight all year long and don't pass any legislation," Mitchell said.
