It must be an election year

Why else would Republicans be pushing so hard for a raise in the minimum wage? It is disturbing that politics and riders could prevent this from being passed. I bet Republicans would love to attach a repeal of the estate tax or a roll back of minimum health benefits required for employees of small businesses. That way, either they get these passed or they get to say it was the Democrats that voted down the minimum wage increase.

Dear Congress:
Do something right for once. Pass the minimum wage increase and do not try and attach unessesary politically motivated riders. Give a reason to believe that not everything you do is politically motivated and self serving.

Very Best,
