DENIAL: Pelosi Says Democrats ‘Will Persist with the Minimum Wage’ After Measure Died in the Senate

posted by Hannity Staff - 3.12.21

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi doubled-down on the Democratic Party’s push for a $15 national minimum wage Thursday; saying they will “persist” despite the measure being defeated in the Senate by a wide margin.

“We will persist with the minimum wage,” Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters.

“We’re not giving up on that,” Pelosi said.

Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders’ push to double the minimum wage to $15 an hour hit a major roadblock last Friday when seven Democrats and one Independent voted with the Republicans to block the measure.

“Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), Chris Coons (D-Del.) Tom Carper (D-Del.) and Angus King (I-Maine.) voted to sustain a procedural objection — a budget point of order — against the wage increase,” reports The Hill.

“If any Senator believes this is the last time they will cast a vote on whether or not to give a raise to 32 million Americans, they are sorely mistaken. We’re going to keep bringing it up, and we’re going to get it done because it is what the American people demand and need,” posted Sanders on social media.

 

“The Senate voted 58 to 42 against an attempt to waive a procedural objection against adding the wage provision to the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill,” adds the website.

ADD IT TO THE LIST! Bernie Vows to Cut ‘Childhood Poverty in Half’ by ‘Increasing Tax Credits’

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.16.21

Senator Bernie Sanders vowed to crackdown on “childhood poverty” this week; promising to slash the figure by 50% through the use of “child tax credits” and increasing the minimum wage.

“We’re going to cut childhood poverty in half because we’re going to significantly increase the child tax credit,” said Sanders.

“We are going to make sure that cities and states have the resources they need so they don’t have to lay off teachers and other employees. This is a comprehensive bill to address crises faced by working families in this country,” he added. “Working families today are living in more desperation than any time since the Great Depression.”
