I support Hillary and I support $15 per hour. She still will make a great President.

If a bill landed on her desk raising the federal minimum wage to $15 I am sure she would sign it. But it isn't the President who makes the laws.

If she were President tens of millions could still rise up. Bernie could propose single payer and free tuition. Hillary would sign those bills if they passed both houses.

If you raise wages you raise spending which pays for the wages.

the election NO MATTER who wins, you will be proactive as Bernie will be.

Assuming Hillary gets the nomination, the person doing the most work after will be Bernie, will his supporters?

Or will they be here pushing email stories?

$15 per hour.
Funded college education
Universal healthcare

Bernie helps others find the strength, fortitude and grace to say "yes we can".

Hillary helps those who lack courage to say, "I'm so sick of <insert the progressive issue of your choice>."

Bernie's idea alone. No one believes the minimum wage will jump immediately to $15/hr. It would devastate small business just coming out of a bad recession.
