4. Sounds to me like
1) Repubs get the tax cut
2) Repubs screw tip earners
3) Repubs claim credit for a miniscule min wage hike, to woo the unthinking.

This going down the tubes is a good thing.

1) Repubs do not get their tax cut
2) Tip earners are protected in those states which have mi wage + tips
3) Repubs get credit for jack shit.

We can live with the 'Dems shot down the minimum wage' if we can explain the truth of it.

3. Sleazy repuke attempt to repeal estate tax by hijacking minimum wage hike
or as I've been calling it, the "Leave No Millionaire Behind Act of 2006".

Buh-bye! Don't let the doorknob hit ya where the good Lord split ya! :bounce:
