Allard, Salazar vote down minimum wage hike
http://9news.com/acm_news.aspx?OSGNAME=KUSA&IKOBJECTID=...

Short article so I won't post it. The f-ing headline says it all..


Next time, I'm voting for a Democrat instead of Salazar. I could've just as well voted for Pete Coors.

1. did he vote
for the Kennedy version. It seems that version had some bad stuff for workers too with the loss of overtime. I'd like to hear the explanation.

2. OK, maybe I jumped the gun.
If this was the Republican version and included other crap which hurt workers, then the vote makes more sense.

I haven't heard how he voted on Kennedy's bill, only this one. If he voted for Kennedy's, it's a whole different story.

3. I don't know the answer
I'd be surprised if he voted no both times. He got a lot of labor support.

5. that makes sense

6. Coors is a right wing polluter
who's father was involved in the start of the right wing pro pollution "heritage foundation". Peter Coors would be terrible for our country....AT ALL cOSTS he msut be kept out of office.

Even though Salazar is a weak democrat, the alternative is scary bad!

7. Salazar
voted against the sham Republican minimum wage increase. He voted the Democratic version, which was a real minimum wage increase.
