We can do MUCH better

I'm surprised, in way, that the minimum wage hike hasn't gone farther than it has. Wherever a minimum wage initiative was on the ballot, it passed overwhelmingly. Looks like our representative would see the writing on the wall. This issue has also been identified by progressive groups as a potential “wedge issue” (to wedge people up off the couch) to counter anti-gay marriage initiatives etc. If this Congress doesn't move on raising the minimum wage, I bet there'll be more ballot measures placed before the voters. Yet another issue where the people are ahead of most leaders.

I hope Edwards keeps on his populist track, some candidate needs to be talking about these things. Geez, is it 2008 yet?
