Kamala Harris won’t intervene to force through minimum wage proposal

To the fury of leftists legislators and activists, Vice President Kamala Harris has abruptly ended any hope that she will step in to overrule the Senate parliamentarian to keep the $15 per hour minimum wage provision in the Biden administration’s COVID-19 stimulus bill.

The Senate is currently working to move the enormous relief bill through budget reconciliation to avoid Republican filibuster and the need for a 60-vote supermajority for approval. The process has led to the removal of Biden’s proposed $15 per hour minimum wage hike, with a Vice President Harris overrule the only way to potentially keep it.

California Democrat Representative Ro Khanna tweeted his push for Harris to intervene:

Several leftist groups organized a Friday rally at the White House to urge Harris to challenge the minimum wage policy change. Among those in attendance include One Fair Wage and the Center for Popular Democracy.

The White House, however, has already signaled it does not intend for the vice president to move on the issue. White House National Economic Council Director Brian Deese directly tweeted, “The Vice President is not going to weigh in.”

Even if Harris did overrule, it is not clear whether her efforts would lead to keeping the $15 per hour minimum wage hike. Some Democrats have already opposed including the measure in the COVID-19 relief bill, recommending the change in order to quickly pass the law.

Harris claims to be for the working people of America, but her lack of involvement in the minimum wage debate indicates otherwise. Those looking for real economic help would be much better under leadership focused on removing government restrictions rather than hiding pet projects in stimulus bills.

    1. Apparently they do and add Biden allowing aliens with COVID to enter our country. And from what was stated by one of the immigrants they were supposed to go to New Jersey and Maryland. In my opinion Biden hates America otherwise why would he do that. From what I understand Texas can’t handle the accept them and release them into the US because there are too many coming in at one time.. He is authorizing the spreading of COVID and taking away jobs from hardworking Americans without having a place for the workers to go to.

      1. Biden doesn’t even know what he is signing or where he is, much less that he ordered something. Do you really think he ordered the strike on Syria? I don’t think so. He can’t even give a State of the Union Address because he doesn’t know what government job he has…seems he was running for the Senate during the Presidential campaign so they locked him in the basement after that. It’s a Circus that is destroying America. This almost makes Obama look good!

  1. How many more stores killed & jobs lost! Pipeline’s & oil jobs killed! Lots of infected aliens, flooding in for cheep labor! We are sick about what, the Puppet & Camel show, is doing to Americans! Keeping kids in cages again, just like Obummer days!

    1. Did you hear that the Border Patrol released 108 scumbags that tested POSITIVE for the virus? They released these people into our country yet we are being told to stay home, wear a mask yet they released infected people. PEOPLE, we need to do something.

      1. We used to be able to do something – vote. Now we can’t even do that because of the cheating by the democraps.

      2. MICHAEL ,
        The time for doing something was last November 3rd, 2020 when something could actually have been done. Instead the Republicans milled about , herded like a flock of sheep by the Democrats. All while the Democrats were busy stealing our election as the Republicans meekly watched.

        1. Republican leaders need to put on their BIG BOY pants and expose the Democratic political movement that will destroy America. 🙏🇺🇸

          1. You are correct Vernon! The democrats have become more and more corrupt because Republicans, such as Mitch McConnell, have allowed it by not calling them out.


      3. F Democrats!
        Life long Dem but there are NO real Dems left!
        May todays Dems burn in the furnace of Hell.

          1. Ken Huffaker ,
            Reminiscing about Harry Truman ? Do you mean the only world leader to have ever used Nuclear Weapons against an enemy during war time ? The enemy being women , children , and the too old men that were left at home .
            Do you mean the Harry Truman that then led us into the Korean War ? THAT Harry Truman ??
            Democrats sure seem to like war and violence ! Coming up next in a few years , VIETNAM !

      4. We need to continue to fight back non-violently. There is power in numbers and when the liberal left realize that we will not stand for their power grab! Otherwise, this country will no longer be free and that is unacceptable.

    2. I agree with you totally! The question is, what are we going to do about it? All we seem to do is complain but I don’t see any active attempt to remove those two out of office!

      1. Edie Faylor ,
        As things stand , the for sale guy and his sidekick , have een confirmed , and certified. Their positions are now carved in stone.
        The U.S. Supreme Court may possibly be able to order a do over election based upon a fraudulent election , however , I do not see that as very likely. The fix was very efficient and well organized , making certain that they had crossed all of the T’s and dotted all of the I’s. Including the Supreme Court , all months before the selection ever happened !

      2. There is nothing we can do. The Dems have the media and mega giant social media platforms, the FBI, CIA, DOJ, media, a 1/3 of our brain washed country, 1/3 wanting mama government to take care of them, other countries wanting free stuff, and the majority of our government who likes their career of being rock stars, improving their bank accts, and hardly working cuz they do what is necessary to get re-elected. We will not see our government truly working for Americans in our life time. They already have started cancelling anyone who disagrees with them. The group above does not care if we go into a recession or which Dem won as long as they took out the most dangerous person to their life. You don’t even have to agree. Just watch the next couple of years. Crime will be up and the economy will be down. You know it’s true. I personally don’t care if a Dem or Republican controls any branch as long as they do their job and quit lying.

        1. And abide by the provisions in the Constitution and not by their “flavor-of-the-week” whim against someone they happen to not like.


      3. Impeach the whole Democratic Party and not allow them to hold any seats whether city, state, county or federal government. Due to their government over reach and total incapable Joe proven he is incapable of leading this country and for Kamala the camel, requesting people to bail rioters out of jail and supporting supporting rioters by paying their bail and deceiving the citizens of the US. Time for all this crap to end!!! I sometimes think with all the illegals being brought into our country maybe it would be a good idea to drag several others illegals to Pelosi, Schumer, Harris, Biden’s and other Democrats homes and have them climb their stone cages around their home as a welcome to open borders. The Democrats have overreached way beyond their responsibility and per our constitutional rights.

      4. The momentum for change is starting to pick up now that many of the people who are going to suffer the most because of these stupid policies are The Dumbocrates themselves. Remember that line in the movie “Forest Gump”? STUPID IS WHAT STUPID DOES !!! And stupidity has never been so rampant.

      5. Well Said Edie!!!!We are becoming a bunch of winners while our country is stolen from us!!!!!And for some reason the traitors keep being elected……….Either the number of morons is increasing or the democrats are paying more people!!!!! Shame on us!!!

    3. do you REALLY BELIEVE they are invading for ”jobs” ????? they are invading for WELFARE, FREE HEALTH CARE, FREE VEHICLES, FREE FOOD, FREE HOUSING, ETC. !!!!!! they KNOW that this country is losing jobs by the minute, hell, by the second, and they KNOW they won’t all find jobs, but that isn’t stopping them, because of all the freebies !!!!!

  2. The Dot-head/Jamaican is truly incompetent as consequently she is walking softly until China-Joe does himself in. Once senile Joe is out of the picture, she’ll follows Baruch’s orders.

  3. Remember America according to many politicians and the doj FBI Supreme Court it was a legit election. Legal without fraud. According to the will rusted MSNBC Cooper CNN Burden Biden and Katistrophic Kamala (Obama) who won the 2020 election fair and square so why are we so upset because many foolish Americans voted this c-nile crackpot into office. Our beloved Champion for the American citizens Donald J Trump will have much cleanup to do when he does come back into office

    1. Rachel ,
      The American people did not vote for him. The DNC chose him !
      President Trump was able to clean up after Obama. However , in four years’ time there may not be anything left to clean up.

    2. Rachel, I hope your are right. But they have too much on their side. Even “smart” people voted for Biden. Simply because they did not like Trump. Regardless of what great things he did. Try asking a Trump hater what Biden will do for the country. You will not get an objective answer. Because they do not know. Sad.

    1. Barbara Clem ,
      What representation ? In the overall scheme of things , we do not even count.

      1. And they have the audacity to call us deplorables when they don’t even possess one ounce of integrity what-so-ever.

  4. To more than double the minimum wage all at once is pure insanity. How about increasing the minimum according to the cost of living index every year? That would make more sense and the impact would be much less. What about the people surviving on social security? Would they get an increase also? Yeah, I didn’t think so. How would it impact the USA currency exchange in relation to foreign currencies? Democrats are only looking for future votes regardless of the long term (and short term) impacts. Heck, they even want to give federal workers stimulus checks of $1,400 per month for 15 months. I am sick of the Democrats and their stupid games!!!

  5. We need to sue them for every single death after Biden got in to office they are killing people by letting in all of the alegals most of them have tested positive for covid-19 and they just let them go on ower streets that is murder no matter how you look at it that are doing this intensionally

  6. Since when does the zoo rule anything. Remove Pelosi, Schumer, Waters, Schiff ,AOC from ever ruling this country. Remove the troops from Camp Pelosi.

  7. i certainly hope that there will be a chance that a fair election can take place but i dont see anyone who is gonna put in place any procedures to stop these demons from flooding the country with ballots & then anything goes & they just keep counting until they get enuff…

    1. The election was stole
      stolen. We have family members that received 6 ballots, 2 they requested and 4 they did not. Explain that one!

  8. Interesting that most of the money will be going to blue states to bail out what they created wrecks, defunding. what they are doing is making sure their own bank accounts don’t get empty. It takes a lot of money for private schools, private parties, and hair dressers.Now that they wrecked their own states they want to wreck all the others. Just remember that they are elected by the people, next time they come up for election vote them out.

  9. They talk about how smart yours is then why did she have to f*** her way to the top I’m sure she use your mouth to get further ahead

  10. To Rotten Khan- I’m sorry, an economically ignorant pis-ant like you does not get to dictate that 32 million Americans get $15 hr. to stuff freakin’ french fries into a bag! Moron!

  11. They just want the huge bail out money and Pelosis and Chuckys personal bridge and tunnel along with all the other NON Covid related PORK to go thru.

  12. Over the course of my life, I have voted for both Republicans and Democrats. The current Democratic Party is made up of mostly scumbags that HATE our Country. They are more interested in spending my tax dollars on illegals (you know the criminals that seek into my country, demand right they are not entitled to and steal my tax dollars). The Democratic party has lost focus on what their actual job is! I will never again consider voting for another Democrat, they are all liars and thieves. Put Biden back in his basement where he belongs! STOP foreign countries from bribing Bidens son! Put some people of integrity in office and restore our Country to the status of a Great Country again. Thanks to the Democrats, there is no inegrity!


  14. Sorry Ro, but a leftist does not get to kill small businesses and this country when there are level headed people in congress that follow the rules.
    If there was truly relief in the bill then good, but its a piece of crap and a bailout scam.

  15. Kamala has her eyes on bidens job thats the plan all along but she’s not going to over use the deciding vote as vp first they let joe hang him self.


    WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORITY) have had countless opportunities to have stopped this nightmare, but we chose instead to give the DEMOCRATS what they expected of us, to REMAIN SILENT! Thus, making us equally complicit in the fraud perpetrated against United States Americans!

    Isn’t it time you actually did something, took action?

    I strongly urge everyone who reads this to PICK UP THE PHONE and call your REP AND SENATORS in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE AUDIT AND INVESTIGATION into the 2020 ELECTIONS and for the IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT OF BIDEN AND HARRIS.

    BIDEN is completely UNFIT FOR OFFICE! And they both (BIDEN & HARRIS) have family members putting them both in a CONCLICT of interest position advertising and promoting their businesses and using their VP and POTUS both as an advertising self-interest, self-promoting position and it is ILLEGAL!

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are required to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

    Members of the House

    Members of the Senate


    One call per rep!

    Keep in mind: SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE

  17. The Democrats can always force through a TAXCUT ; especially one for those whose income is less than $100,000.00 a year. They can do that by INCREASING THE STANDARD DEDUCTION. What a GREAT IDEA.

  18. Remember how we got here! We are here primarily due to the efforts of the never Trumpers and their infinite wisdom. At least they get to enjoy it right along with us! Help from scotus didn’t hurt them either

  19. As the Democrats push through these hair brain ideas of theirs guess who always ends up paying the price…us. I really don’t want to pay $12 for a hamburger at McDonald’s. Do you? Those are jobs for kids and retirees. You don’t have to apply there.

  20. You are correct Vernon! The democrats have become more and more corrupt because Republicans, such as Mitch McConnell, have allowed it by not calling them out.
    Kamala was the presidential candidate. Creepy sleepy Biden was just a Trojan horse. Not only her as president but Pelosi as vp.
