Congressman Brags About Sabotaged Minimum Wage Bill: ‘You Have Seen Us Really Outfox You’

These guys are amazing. They use a long overdue minimum wage bill for political leverage, and then brag about it. That's repulsive to use poor, hardworking individuals as political pawns, but they think it's clever politics.

Republicans voted down a very reasonable and modest increase in the minimum wage, and then introduced their own version with this gift to Paris Hilton, et al, attached to it. They know it won't pass, they'll make their business lobbyists very happy so they will hand them more cash. Of course this is all related to the fact that elections are only 99 days away, they WILL use it to say Democrats opposed the minimum wage.

I don't know what else to say. They're going to have to stop leaving me speechless. It's adversely affecting my blogging.
