Kohl, Feingold Vote Against the Underclass

Predictably, our Senators used the underclass as political footballs:

Wisconsin Sens. Herb Kohl and Russ Feingold, both Democrats, voted against legislation Thursday... [which would have raised the minimum wage to $7.25/hour.]

I'm proud of the Wisconsin delegation for handing Bill Frist's manipulating ass back to him. This cheap-jack ploy to tie a giveaway for the rich to relief for the lowest is shameful. Even the Republicans couldn't go through with a blatant steal like this and still look themselves in the mirror in the morning.

Uhhh--grumps--my post was sarcasm.

You captured the tone very well.

I happen to agree with you that Frist is a turkey--but for FAR different reasons.
