WASHINGTON (The Nil Admirari) - Today, Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced she supported raising the federal minimum wage to $27 an hour. Clinton's sole rival, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, accused her of lying, as well as stealing and magnifying his positions in order to win the Democratic presidential nomination.
"When I become president, the federal minimum wage will be $27 an hour. Working families in America will finally get the raises my largest donors are primarily responsible for withholding from them over the last four decades," promised Clinton.
Secretary Clinton continued, "You won't hear that from Bernie Sanders, who clearly doesn't understand the struggles of everyday Americans or care about the increasing income inequality out there."
The presidential campaign of Senator Bernie Sanders did not immediately reply to TNA's request for comment, which was later found to be due to Sanders wanting to respond himself.
"Hillary goes from a $12 federal minimum wage to my position of $15, and now she is at $27, which just so happens to be the average donation to my campaign," said Sanders.
Hillary assured her supporters the minimum wage she supported would go back to $12, or perhaps lower, once Sanders had conceded the Democratic nomination to her.
