Left-wing activists are not happy that Vice President Kamala Harris and the White House do not plan to overrule the Senate parliamentarian to keep a $15-per-hour minimum wage hike provision in the coronavirus relief bill.

Democrats, which hold a slim 50-seat-plus-Harris majority in the chamber, are moving to pass their $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill through the budget reconciliation process, which circumvents the chance of a Republican filibuster and the need for a 60-vote supermajority. But the Senate’s Byrd rule limits what kind of provisions can be part of a bill moving through budget reconciliation, preventing measures “extraneous” to the budget from consideration.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Senate parliamentarian on Thursday advised that the $15 minimum page hike in the coronavirus relief bill would violate the Byrd rule, essentially blocking Democrats and the Biden administration from keeping the wage hike as part of the bill.

“I’m sorry—an unelected parliamentarian does not get to deprive 32 million Americans the raise they deserve. This is an advisory, not a ruling. VP Harris needs to disregard and rule a $15 minimum wage in order. We were elected to deliver for the people. It’s time we do our job,” tweeted Rep. Ro Khanna.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib responded, “7.25 an hour in 2021 is a disgrace. We were elected to fight economic inequality and that’s exactly what we’re going to do. We can’t allow a nonelected official or other procedural obstacles stop our work – the Senate must continue to push to get $15 included in the package.”

“I am so tired of people’s excuses that amount to giving up on people living in poverty who can’t wait any longer for us to raise the wage,” Tlaib declared.

Somalian refugee Rep. Ilhan Omar slammed the White House for not overruling the parliamentarian’s decision.

“It’s unacceptable, for us to continue to come up with excuses on why we can’t do the right thing on behalf of the American people…This is the time for Democrats to fight for working Americans,” Omar declared.

Rep. Pramila Jayapal declared, “What are we supposed to tell voters in 2 years before the midterms? Sorry, we couldn’t pass the $15 minimum wage that we promised you because the Senate parliamentarian advised against it? Two-thirds of voters want this done. Time to deliver.”

“Preserving the filibuster is not worth letting millions of people in this country go hungry, sleep in their cars, or struggle to afford baby formula,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted dramatically.

  1. Go ahead and raise the minimum wage and put another 2 million people out of work, small businesses can afford to pay their high-school and college kids that much….how about big business who give their ceo and presidents million dollar bonuses but don8give their working people crap. Why is it ok for a certain to .are millions a year but refuse to give a raise to the ones who actually do the work

  2. Every time there are minimum wage increases, so does the cost of everything else – rent increases, cost of food, clothing, everything. They will still end up living in cars, still just as poor.

  3. If they want to increase the minimum wage go ahead and do it separated from the stimulus. The problem with the Democrats is that they are using the pandemic as excuse to get everything they want even if is not related to the Covid-19. They can care less about the budget and the debt increase. A stimulus package of 1.9 trillion including money for foreign countries, government employees salary increase, etc. The stimulus is to help the country get enough vaccines, businesses and their citizens for the results of the pandemic. Squad stop being so dramatic!!! Why you politicians didn’t think of the people of this country for the last four years. Now you want to deliver your promises but didn’t care before?

  4. Raising the minimum wage always distorts market forces, causes many of those on the lowest economic rungs to lose their jobs, fuels inflation, diminishes economic mobility, dampens economic growth, and generally lowers the quality of life for all except those who directly benefit and the corrupt demagogues they support.
