    He's running for reelection...very difficult to see him go against this bill even though he only wanted a $10 min wage

    •  Bingo. (1+ / 0-)

      Just what I was going to say. Funny how some politicians love helping folks when it's their own livelihood on the line.

      •  He is better than Fenty's acolytes. (2+ / 0-)

        Including the woman who will challenge Grey and also likely bring back people like Michelle Rhee.

        Gray needs to endorse the increase in minimum wage no question, but locally it is important to understand that we have some very nefarious politics in play here these days.

          Already have the DLC technocrat crowd. It's bad politics to go against the interests -- and the overwhelming preference -- of the voters in the neighborhoods that put him in the job. This is a winning issue.

          “Republicans...think American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it.” Harry S. Truman
