The minimum wage has become a victim of the minimum morality of the Republican Party. Every one of those GOP Congressmen deserves some special punishment before they die. I think working in a fast food joint for 20 years or until death would be just. How long do they think they can keep screwing the workers before they are overthrown? And I just hope it isn't only at the ballot box. And the American corporate elite, who fund them to do this, will need to pay too. Comments are welcome on cruel and unusual punishment they deserve.
