No surprises in the "No" column as our illustrous congressman continues his nonsupport of the working man and woman. He voted against the minimum wage increase as well using all the old, worn-out reasons.

I will never understand how, in good conscience, he has received a number of increases in his salary over nine years (to $168,000) and can't even find the courage to increase the minimum wage to $7.50 an hour. Oh wait, maybe it's that word "conscience."
