Kennedy Slams Republicans Who Consistently Vote Against Wage Increases
No difference between Democrats and Republicans? Every low-income American in this country who doesn't vote should watch this speech from Senator Edward Kennedy:
Do you have such disdain for hard-working Americans that you want to pile all your amendments on this? Why don’t you just hold your amendments until other pieces of legislation? Why this volume of amendments on just the issue to try and raise the minimum wage? What is it about it that drives you Republicans crazy? What is it? Something. Something! What is the price that the workers have to pay to get an increase? What is it about working men and women that you find so offensive?"
