Opposition may be good business sense but is also step one on how to lose elections. Rock and hard place.

When Reid sets up the repubicans like this....why don’t they just not vote...

Then all the stand alone dem no votes would show up...

The vote was to debate the bill on the floor...

Have a debate....

The Democrats do not really want to raise the minimum wage. They are looking for a club with which to bash Republicans. It’s a Hail Mary play. Look for the MSM to lend a hand.

How exactly can the Republicans block anything in the Democrat majority Senate under the new rules?

Have they, except Corker, finally learned that allowing debate = voting aye?

“...This debate is not over.”

I like how Rats can unilaterally decide when debates are over. The last time Dingy said something wasn’t over he was issuing an overt threat to a cattle rancher in the state he represents. I wonder if he plans on using government agencies to kill the R’s and D’s who voted against this union pay increase.

Coming to a TV/Radio commercial near you:

“it’s no surprise that those greedy Republicans would rather give the Koch brothers and their other billionaire buddies tax-breaks than mandate a decent wage for working families.”

Oh, and with regards to Obmacare and the stagnant economy: “RACISM!!!”

emocratic bill to raise the federal minimum wage

I know ... it's a typo. It was supposed to be "democratic".

BUT ...

Let's roll with it. I think you've invented a useful new term! "Emocratic": rule by unbridled emotionalism rather than facts and logic. Rule by emotionally disturbed people.

This is just the marxists generating campaign propaganda for the next election.

As I recall, according to the government, there is no inflation.

A 35% increase in the minimum wage? Has anyone actually given that any thought. 39%!

Wouldn’t that mean that most unions get to raise their rates by about the same amount? I sure wish I could have the government pass a law that gave me a 39% raise. Life sure would be more comfortable for my family.

After the vote, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), tweeted, "Republicans just turned their backs on millions of hardworking Americans who deserve a fair shot. This debate is not over."

IF AMERICA IS SO STUPID TO BELIEVE THE LIES COMING OUR OF THE RAT PARTY, they deserve every bit of the disaster this party has perpetrated on America.

Why couldn't Reid even get this past cloture with his easy majority rule of the Senate (failed by a margin of 54-42)?

Why? For intelligent reasons or for political posturing? You decide, fair and balanced.

Very good. At least another drag on the economy has been avoided.
