Democrats go to bat for working people.

Democrats ratcheted up their election-year push for an increase in the federal minimum wage Tuesday by promising to block a congressional pay hike unless some of the lowest-paid hourly workers get their first raise in nearly a decade.

“Congress is going to have earn its raise by putting American workers first: A raise for workers before a raise for Congress,” said Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada.

Yes, it is true. We Dems stand up for big chunks of the population who are unlikely to vote. Foolish? Perhaps, if staying in power is the only reason to seek office. Believe it or not, some politicians are in it for the people. They don’t do it for the votes, they do it because it’s the right damned thing to do.

And isn’t that what America is supposed to be about?
