Getting political for a sec

Why is it that when something is proposed for the country that is good and will help millions of people be self sufficient, someone has to tack on stupid provisions that will only benefit a select few that really don't need help?

What am I talking about?

The Federal minimum wage - it hasn't been raised in 9 years.

Tell me, who can live on 5.15 an hour??

I haven't made 5.15 an hour since I was 15 years old. How can they expect an adult to be able to survive on that?

In order to raise it the republicans want to add in provisions that state that they can ease the estate tax.

we want to raise the minimum wage so it's something that you can begin to, at least, live on, why is this a problem??

And I thought the New Zealand minimum wage was bad at $7-8/hour!
