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.

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.
