    In addition, allowing Dem members to vote against it is ridiculous and destructive.   It undermines Dem's commitments to quality public policy when they allow their own members to trash it.

    Raising the minimum wage is not just a popular issue, its a high-quality, virtuous one.  Dem leaders need to stop sabotaging their own agenda and use a little party discipline to promote it instead.  

    It's all part of strengthening the party's reputation with the voting public.  You can't educate the public about quality Dem public policy when you allow your own members to undermine it.

    It is an old strategy of tyrants to delude their victims into fighting their battles for them. FDR
