  •  In another sense it was the "Real Obama" as well-- (6+ / 0-)

    Looking at it from a political strategy:

    By explicitly calling for an increase in the minimum wage and the indexing it to inflation, you have national Republicans coming out on national TV now saying that "minimum wage laws don't work"

    The last being an actual quote from "Republican Savior" Marco Rubio on CBS This Morning.

    So Democrats have the opportunity to hang the "Republicans want to repeal minimum wage" anchor around the necks of Republicans during an election cycle.

    Using wedge issues against Republicans the way they have used then against us.
