In Jesse Jackson's essay in yesterday's Chicago Sun-Times he complains about Bush for ten paragraphs and then concludes with this gem:
Rather than weaken the safety net that ensures all seniors dignity at the end of a long life of work, let's deal with the real hurdles that cause African Americans to die sooner, or suffer disabilities more. Reduce poverty, guarantee adequate health care, invest in decent schools and affordable housing, raise the minimum wage. Don't remove the floor under seniors while claiming to be helping African Americans.There it is! "Raise the minimum wage." Geez. Is that the best they have to offer?
