George Allen and John Warner Hate Working Americans
From Skippy I found this story about the Senate voting down an increase in the minimum wage. And how did the two Senators from the Commonwealth of Virginia vote? They both voted against increasing the minimum wage from $5.15 to $6.25 an hour. Why do George Allen and John Warner hate working Americans? It was a lousy $1.10 an hour. That's a $2288 a year raise for the working poor. It's not that much of a raise for the senators who make $162,000 a year, but to someone who makes $10,712 a year it means being able pay rent and buy food. The minimum wage has not increased since 1997. I guess Wal-Mart can trust Allen and Warner to do its bidding.
George Allen is up for re-election next year and is alledgely a front runner for president in 2008. Virginia cannot afford to have George Allen as its Senator and America cannot afford to George Allen as its President.
