U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy asking his Republican colleagues (when can we end the "My friend across the aisle" formality that insults voters' intelligence?) to end their 5-day filibuster of a minimum wage increase of $2.10 over two years.
This small request followed votes that gave tax cuts worth $240 Billion to corporations and gave tax cuts worth $36 Billion to Millionaires and Billionaires.
This unrepentant Democrat asked his colleagues the pertinent questions:
"What is the price that you want from these working men and women?"
"How much more do we have to give to private sector businesses?
This is a Democratic United States Senator fighting for his constituents, fighting for the Middle Class, fighting for the common decency of our lowest paid workers not to have to turn to food stamps and Medicaid even after working a full-time job.
