Charles Taylor Votes Against the Poor

This release from the NCDemocratic Party pairs two important news items into a telling narrative (heavily excerpted, because, while telling, the release sounds too canned for my tastes. No link available yet.):

"Rep. Charles Taylor is the wealthiest lawmaker from North Carolina and one of the richest members of Congress, with an estimated worth of at least $50 million.[...] During a vote to increase the minimum wage in the Appropriations Committee last week, Taylor followed his trend of voting against raising the minimum wage. The proposed amendment would have raised the national minimum wage $2.10 over the next 24 months, and would have impacted over 16 million American workers.

"Charles Taylor has denied North Carolinians and the American people a minimum wage increase four times, while his personal bank account has ballooned to a gargantuan number"
"Taylor, a banker and vast-land owner, reported "over $50,000,000" in stock alone at Financial Guaranty Corp. in Asheville. His stake in a Russian bank is worth $1 million to $5 million. Farmland in Transylvania County is valued at as much $5 million. “Taylor is worth at least $77 million and probably more.”
"In 1996, Taylor twice voted against proposals to increase the minimum wage from $4.25 per hour to $5.15 per hour. In 2000, Taylor twice voted against increasing the federal minimum wage by $1 over two years."


"vast-land owner"?

I hope to one day own a vast-land. Tell me, if Taylor loses his land, will that be a vast-ectomy? Deomcratic grammar is sub-par!

my millionaire pie recipe is different

my copy of the recipe actually calls for draining the 8 oz. can of pineapple and replacing the liquid with the tears of the family members of the teller and two customers that were killed in the blue ridge savings bank robbery in greer in 2003...
