Three House Republicans voted with Democrats to raise the federal minimum wage to $15. This move will ensure that low-skilled workers remain unemployed and compel many companies to embrace automation much faster if this bill is passed into law.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed that the passage of this bill is “about workers, it’s about their economic and financial security, and today is a bright day because it affects so many people in our country.”
The three Republicans who voted for the minimum wage hike were:
Florida Rep. Francis Rooney
Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick
New Jersey Rep. Chris Smith
Curiously, Brian Fitzpatrick and Chris Smith voted for H.R. 8, the universal gun registration bill, earlier in February. This bill represents the largest expansion of gun control at the federal level since the Brady Act was passed in the 1990s.
But it doesn’t stop there.
Fitzpatrick and Smith voted for The American Dream and Promise Act, a mass amnesty bill that would shield illegal immigrants from deportation and give millions a pathway to permanent citizenship.
These votes show that there are still Republicans in Congress that will betray their conservative constituents by voting for leftist legislation. Grassroots activists should remember these names during primary season. Bad political behavior should never be rewarded and should always be met with grassroots pushback.
These Republican districts deserve conservative alternatives that will help President Donald Trump advance his America First agenda.
Rapper Lil Wayne Breaks the Silence on George Floyd’s Death
On May 29, 2020, Lil Wayne commented on the death of George Floyd.
The controversial death involved Minneapolis Police Department officer Derek Chauvin placing his knee on Floyd’s neck as he was handcuffed on the ground.
“I think when we see these situations, I think we also have to understand that we have to get very specific. … And what I mean by that is we have to stop viewing it with such a broad view, meaning we have to stop placing the blame on the whole force and the whole everybody or a certain race or everybody with a badge,” Wayne remarked during an IG Live chat with rapper Fat Joe.
Wayne added: “We have to actually get into who that person is. And if we want to place the blame on anybody, it should be ourselves for not doing more than what we think we’re doing.”
On top of that, the New Orleans rapper explained why he doesn’t always go public on these political issues.
“What else am I gonna do after that?” Wayne said to Fat Joe. “Some people put a tweet out and they think they did something. Some people wear a shirt and they think they did something. What you gonna do after that? Did you actually help the person? Did you actually help the family? Did you actually go out there and do something? So, if I ain’t about to do all that, then I ain’t about to do nothing. I’ll pray for ya.”
Wayne shared more of his thoughts regarding how people should process information during times of controversy.
“It’s actually learning about it,” Wayne commented. “What we need to do is we need to learn about it more. If we wanna scream about something, know what we’re screaming about. If we wanna protest about something, know what we’re protesting about. Because if we wanna get into it, there’s a bunch of facts that we think we know that we don’t know. … We scream about things that, sometimes, they really ain’t true.”
Wayne and Joe’s full discussion can be viewed below:
Riots have spread to other cities across the U.S., which included Minneapolis, where Floyd was killed. On May 29, Derek Chauvin received charges of murder and manslaughter in the killing of Floyd.
