People Vs. The Powerful

The Republicans in the senate are threatening to obstruct the minimum wage hike unless we add more sweetheart tax breaks for business. As pointed out here, matching up these two things is dishonest. From a practical point of view, I hope the minimum wage hike passes, but from a political one it just adds another quiver to the arrow of 2008 Democratic House & Senate candidates, not to mention the Democratic presidential candidate who could start of his or her term by signing this into law first.
