Liddy Dole: Too Bad, Minimum Wage Earners.

Looks like our favorite Senator from NC just sent a big fat message to American workers during today's Senate session.

Liddy's message:

If you work for minimum wage, I don't care about you.

Apparently, Liddy and our new Republican Minority don't believe in the upperdownvote. The Party of Greed (as our friend Anglico loves to call them) has filibustered the Minimum Wage vote because it does not include an accompanying tax break.

I'll leave it to Senator Kennedy to ask the obvious:

Why can't we do just one thing for minimum wage workers, no strings attached, no giveaways for the powerful?

Well, Liddy? Liddy....?

This is SO going to come back to haunt Dull and Brrrrr

and if there ever was a case to be made for the Party of Greed moniker (thank you), two filthy rich, white Senators filibustering an increase in the minimum wage is it. How they can look in the mirror is beyond me.

well that answers that

I was curious who her constiuents were. She has answered it. The top 1% of the country, and companies that are able to give 100 million dollar bonuses to failed CEOs.
