    If the Republican filibuster or use other procedural tricks to prevent a vote on raising the minimum wage that shouldn't prevent the Democrats from calling that voting against it.

    In other words, rhetorically, the Democrats only need to put forward a minimum wage hike bill. Let the Republicans filibuster it (and here's the important bit) go on television and say they voted against it.

    Go on CNN and say "Mitch McConnell and every other Republican in the Senate voted against the minimum wage bill." With the full understanding that while that's not technically true, it's an honest description of what they're doing.

    Do this for every universally popular bill the Republicans are stalling and 2014 could turn out to be the end of the GoP.
