Plus My Golf Membership Is Going Up

OK, here's some quick ironicus for your maximus:

The Senate voted to defeat a bill that would have raised the minimum wage for the first time in almost 10 years. The final vote was 52-46, eight short of the 60 votes needed to pass the legislation. 43 Democrats, eight Republicans and one Independent voted in favor of the legislation. All 46 votes against it were cast by Republicans.

Republicans to little people: Hey, macaroni and cheese three times a day isn't bad.

Democrats promised to block a Republican sponsored congressional pay hike unless some of the lowest-paid hourly workers get their first raise in nearly a decade.

Republicans to themselves: Look, we're losing a lot of income due to these ethics investigations. We got bills, you know?

Lawyer bills. We know.
