http://washingtontimes.com/national/20070112-120720-2734r.htm The New minimum wage bill pushed by Democrats and House leader Nancy Pelosi (D) seemingly leaves her representative area out of the new hike in wages. This means business won't have to spend more money on common people, which is pretty hypocritical considering her alleged views on the matter. HAH! I'm not saying there's corruption going on, its just pretty suspicious!

If this is true it should be fixed. Having said that, this is not even a drop in the bucket compared to the billions of dollars in tax breaks being given to oil companies (with gas at $3 a gallon, why does the oil industry need tax breaks?), or the payments those same companies aren't paying on the leases they are legally required to make on their drilling operations in the Gulf of Mexico.

Unfortunately, no one cares about Politics unless it has to do with the war. I completely agree that there is something going on with this, and when our taxes are raised to pay for the increase in the price of good either because of higher wages or because of the cost of importing and the ensuing trade deficit, people will actually pay attention.

It's all a farce they donot care about the common man. Nancy Pelosi and the others only care about themselves.
