    The answer is simple. The democrats that care so much about human rights except when is costs them and their investments. Pelosi's husband has 17 million in a stock that has major fishery in Samoa so their minimum wage remains at 2.00 an hour.

    How is the MINORITY leader blocking an increase? Can you cite the piece of legislation Congress is working on to raise the minimum?

    Such bullshit. This lie has been debunked about 1000 times since it first came out in 2007.

    Dude, at least get some new lies and make this a bit more interesting.

    Just because the media did not continue to report on it does not make it untrue.

    Is he paying a living wage or the minimum wage is the proper question.

    10 years ago?!?! What's happening NOW to hold it up? That's got to be on Ryan, NOT Pelosi.

    There is no bill to raise the minimum wage. That might bring about a change, but the fact remains why it was allowed by Democrats in the first place!

    Can you say "conflict of interest" by the Speaker of the House at the time?
