Alexander (R-TN) Votes to End the Federal Minimum Wage

Yeah, you read that right. Senator Lamar Alexander (R) is not content with blocking the minimum wage increase.

The Tennessee Republican Senator, famed for donning a plaid shirt and posing as a common man, voted to completely abolish the federal minimum wage! (See that link for the list of guilty senators.)

Twenty-eight Republican Senators were involved in the dirty scheme before it was killed.

Lamar Alexander will be running for re-election in 2008.

Wish the common man good luck via email at his website.
