Warning on minimum wage

The Congressional Budget Office estimates that gradually raising the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour would reduce total employment by about 500,000 workers.

But Republicans and Democrats reacted with lightning speed and polarizing conclusions to the report. Which side is right?

In the Crossfire tonight, Former Democratic Party Chair Howard Dean and former Maryland Governor Bob Erlich join Van Jones and S.E. Cupp to debate.

We want you to weigh in on Today's Fireback question: Do you think raising the minimum wage would cost jobs?
