Minimum Wage Shows the Clearest Difference Between Dems and GOP

It's the clearest distinction between the two parties.
One party would pass enormous tax cuts for the richest 1% of the country when the division of wealth is greater than at any other time in American History, and at the same time, would starve social programs, such as the education system, that can help the middle class open up the same doors of opportunity that are wide open for the wealthy.  People on the minimum wage don't get capital gains tax cuts, they don't get dividends tax cuts.

If we want to celebrate work, we need to pay for work.  If Republicans want to get people off of welfare, then get them a job to enable them to afford a roof over their head, healthcare for their children.
