I'm at a loss as to why senate democrats feel they need to allow for any republican input on a modest hike to the minimum wage. It's not like the bill is controversial or unpopular. They're not trying to keep a terminally braindead patient on life support, for example.

Well, those are the boobs that make our laws. That's the democratic process.
Seems to me that Republican Senators have already successfully filibustered more bills than the democrats were able to in the entire six years they were the minority party. First the ethics bill and now the minimum wage hike.
