Tax breaks sidetrack minimum wage bill - Yahoo! News

"Democrats' promise of a quick increase in the minimum wage ran aground Wednesday in the Senate, where lawmakers are insisting it include new tax breaks for restaurants and other businesses that rely on low-pay workers."
I realize the Dems hold such a slim majority that they have to give in to the blood-sucking, downtrodden-hating Rethugs; but FerChrissakes; I've got to agree with Ted here:

"Why can't we do just one thing for minimum wage workers, no strings attached, no giveaways for the powerful?" asked Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., a leading sponsor of the bill.
