Contemptuous and Disgraceful Greed

The Republican House of Representatives has, once again, rejected increasing the minimum wage. In the last nine years, Congress has given itself a total $15 per hour raise (amounting to over $31,000), but it has refused to support Democratic attempts to raise the minimum wage for poor working Americans from $5.15 an hour to $7.25 an hour.

The Republicans call the New York Times "disgraceful" for revealing the Bush monitoring of SWIFT bank account money transfers. Who is more disgraceful?

You'd think we could get the Congress' pay indexed to the minimum wage. The time has come, I think.

It's more trickle down economics from the rich GOPer's. "Piss on you!"

Between SWIFT boating and SWIFT economics the Repugs don't look too swift do they?
