13. We aren't all looking for a pay raise...

I recognize that the minimum wage has been dropping (compared to prices) and it needs to be brought up steadily, indexed to inflation and basically fixed in the same way that it has been in the past.

Bernie isn't going to do it unilaterally, the only way it's going to happen is if we get a congress controlled by democrats. If Bernie weren't running a campaign that distracts from the senate and house races by beating up on the only democrat running for president, it would likely increase the talk on the trail about working class issues and how democrats are going to fix those problems.

He's actually doing more damage in the battle to raise the minimum wage.
