Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) attacked a pair of pro-Constitution billionaires on Tuesday in an effort to gin up support for the Democratic campaign to raise the minimum wage:
The Koch bros made over $18 billion last year, but middle-class families have watched their incomes stagnate for decades. #RaiseTheWage

Reid must have forgotten to mention his plans to attend a fundraiser Wednesday night at the home of Tom Steyer, an anti-bald eagle hedge fund titan with an estimated net worth of $1.4 billion who is planning a $100 million ad blitz in 2014.
The Congressional Budget Office on Tuesday estimated that increasing the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, as Democrats have proposed, would come at the expense of about 500,000 jobs.
