Senators who voted to eliminate the Federal minimum wage

Here's a list of the 28 senators last week who voted to eliminate completely the Federal minimum wage, leaving that determination to each state. Notable on the list are Presidential candidates Sam Brownback (KS), "straight talkin'" John McCain (AZ), and potential candidate Chuck Hagel (NE). As passionate as Hagel is on the Iraq war, lists like this are a painful reminder of who he is outside of the war issue.
