letter to the editor:

Bullying the 99 percent

The GOP does not want to raise the minimum wage; they seem to want to let people work for $.50 an hour.

Well, the House of Representatives does nothing for $175,000 a year. They even said that this year they would do nothing. All they do is raise money to stay in office.

The GOP even has to arrange their districts to get elected. And, then to ensure their election, they restrict the voting, shorten polling hours, demand ID cards and the like. They can’t run on what they will do for people. They run on lies.

Question: Would any of the 1 percent keep any of their employees if that employee said, “I am not going to do anything for the next year”?
