Tell it, Ted Kennedy!
did you hear him talking to his colleagues? Yelling at them. He is so disgusted that the 'Publicans can't even raise the minimum wage in a simple law. They've piled on 90 amendments.
I guess they figure that we want it badly enough that they can attach anything and get it thru.
We have the highest rate of children in poverty of any industrial nation. This would get millions of children out of poverty he said (not far out, I said).
congress has raised its own wages. It's lowered taxes for the rich. Why can't they give a little to the poor?
When does the greed stop?
