Minimum wage hike coupled with estate tax elimination

In another shining example of why people are disillusioned with politics, the U. S. House Friday voted to boost the minimum wage, but the only way Republicans would agree to this was if it was linked to a permanent elimination of the estate tax, a tax which only affected a small percentage of the richest people in the U. S.
The bill is expected to run into fierce opposition in the Senate.
