Elitist Tim Pawlenty Vetoes Minimum Wage

No surprise here: Gov. Tim Pawlenty vetoed today a wage increase for the state's lowest-earning workers.

At a time of rising energy, materials, and food costs, at a time when health care and other necessities are out of reach for many, our esteemed governor has refused to help those who work for a living. Only the good governor would back a presidential candidate who wants to suspend the gas tax (little or no help to working families) while rejecting a measure to help working families afford gas! (And food, and rent, and health care...)

Pawlenty, of course, makes over $120,000 a year. His would-be running mate, along with his wife, is worth tens of millions of dollars.
