You will notice that NY isn't listed either but my bet is that you have a lot of people in your state making NY minimum wage. What percentage of your work force makes NY minimum wage? I understand how you could get confused because you get confused on so many issues. It is easy for the left to brainwash people like you. Let's see if you can figure out which is better:

    500,000 making a minimum wage of $7.25 which is less than 5% of the employment number in a low tax state like TX

    OR

    2 million making the California Minimum wage of $8 an hours which is over 10% of the employment number in a high tax, high cost of living state?

    Hmmm, wonder which state I would choose to live in and where the opportunities are the greatest.

    Now I will search for that apology. If I don't find it, I do apologize for responding to you.

    Tell how the things I mentioned were unsuccessful.

While they talk of 'negotiating' and 'compromise', they do not have a history of either.
    Thats pretty damn surprising. Glad they're paying some attention, this demographic is the one that gets screwed over the most by Obamacare.

    Claire Mccaskill, democratic senator from Missouri, won relection in 2012.

    harry reid, the democratic senate majority leader and arguably the most hated senator in washington, won reelction in navada during the 2010 wave election.

    need i go on?
    Tester isn't one that will be a concern this time. Tester represents a very heavy union based district and was re-elected by them BEFORE they found out the devastation Obamacare would have on their healthcare insurance. But they ain't happy now. And in this PPP poll taken in June of this year had Tester at 48% approval and 43% disapproved.

    48% of voters approving of him to 43%
    who disapprove. Max Baucus hasn't received any sort of post retirement boost in his poll
    numbers- he continues to be easily the least popular politician in the state with only 36%
    of voters approving of him to 52% who disapprove.
    Yes the author of Obamacare is not running for re-election because the people of his state have shun him for it. It will be interesting if Tester feels the heat from his constituents later on. But one thing for sure Baucus' seat is up for grabs. And what I find very surprising is in this poll it states that Rand Paul is the favorite Republican candidate. Imagine that.... a Tea Party favorite

    http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/p...ase_MT_628.pdf

    Claire McCaskill's re-election was a gift given her by the GOP candidate Aikens who made some comments about rape that not even the majority of pro-lifers agree with and after that the GOP withheld their support for him and scurried to find a write-in in his place. Up to that point McCaskill was trailing in the polls.

    Now Harry Reid may have been re-elected but it doesn't seem to appear his name recognition carries much weight. After two years of ole Harry shoving through Obamacare, and major feckless so called stimulus spending, in the 2010 Gubernatorial race in the Nevada general election, Sandoval (R) won 53%-41%, against Democrat Rory Reid, the Clark County Commissioner and son of U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. He won every county in the state, and all with a majority except Clark County which Mr. Sandoval won with a plurality. (49%-47%).
    It appears ole Harry is planning on running again in 2016, but this time his opponent will be Sandoval. Just three more years till the most despised Senator in all the land according to Gallup, will be sent packing.
    Senate Majority leader Harry Reid of Nevada says he will run for a sixth term in 2016. - latimes.com

    You see there are consequences when a political party doesn't listen to the people and when they hollered "we don't want Obamacare" the Democrat Elites said "Piss on you, we do".

    if you think 2014 will be a cake walk you are naive. the democratic party in montana found a candidate for the senate race in Lt governor john Walsh. and right now the republican party is in serious trouble according to gallup.

    So tell me exactly what is it about the Harry Reid run Senate and Obama results that motivate you to continue to support the Democrat Party? Could it be that the "D" after their name trump the policies they are implementing? Why don't results matter now like they do when a Republican is in the WH?

    they are not asking for their own legislative items as demands. only do what congress has been expected to do and end the government shutdown, and raise the debt ceiling.
