    Not only is raising the minimum wage just the right thing to do, it lowers entitlement spending (less food stamps, etc etc) and it improves business function.

    Dems in congressional races should push this point on their opponents who claim that lowering the deficit is so important.  Call their bluff: if they believe in smaller government, then increasing the minimum wage is a great way to do this!
