The Democrats using the war supplemental to push the minimum wage bill and, in the process, exempt American Samoa from the minimum wage.
So, as this thing drags out, maybe Delmonte should be held responsible for our troops running out of funding. It seems, yet again, the Speaker is trying to exempt American Samoa from the minimum wage to benefit Delmonte's Starkist subsidiary.
What in the name of God Almight does the minimum wage in American Samoa have to do with funding our troops?
