Harry Reid Attacks Koch Brothers’ Wealth

Does not mention Wednesday fundraiser at billionaire’s home


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:

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.
