Democrats hypocritical on minimum wage issue

Two articles in the newspaper recently detailed the travesty of our elected officials. Democrats in Congress and the president hope to show that our current minimum wage represents inequality for millions of America. Are these not the same people in Congress who passed -- and the same president who then signed into law in 2010 -- a law which postponed any increase in the minimum wage for workers in American Samoa where the minimum wage is currently about $5.50 an hour until 2015? That legislation certainly is a statement on inequality.
