I searched for about two minutes on the internets, not 54 years, and here are a few things I found. Like I said before, Roseanne just needs to get out a little more.
Openly gay Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA):
And openly lesbian Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI):
We must raise the federal minimum wage. No one should work full time, yet be unable to provide for him or herself and family, the basics of shelter food, clothing and health care.
Urvashi Vaid, former executive director of the NGLTF, said:
Gay civil rights must be seen as part of a broader focus on human rights, sexual and gender equality, social and economic justice, and faith in a multiracial society.
And our friend John Aravosis of AmericaBlog has posted over 40 times on the minimum wage, and I'm pretty sure he wasn't against it in any of them.
Is Roseanne implying that Urvashi Vaid, Barney Frank, Tammy Baldwin, and John Aravosis aren't politically active?
