    Congress has raised the minimum wage in the past, they are certainly capable of it.

    Its just that they have chosen not to.

    I went to a MLK "Marade" back in Denver in 1992. And a bunch of white skinheads also marching (no connection to the parade) were almost murdered by MLK marchers... in the spirit of peace, acceptance and brotherhood, not to mention nonviolence...I had an epiphany then.
