Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, is whining that the new minimum wage compromise doesn't have enough tax favors for business. From CQ Today (subscription required):
“The Senate package was barely adequate,” [Grassley] said in a statement. “I called it peanuts. The House package was puny. I called it a peanut shell. Now we have a single shriveled peanut. This package is stripped of a lot of meaningful tax relief.”
Yet Grassley managed to spin The Washington Post into reporting that he's mainly upset that Democrats wouldn't close more business friendly tax loopholes:
...Democrats have stripped out a variety of contentious tax measures that had been tied to the minimum-wage legislation, under pressure from some of the nation's largest business lobbies.
