Now that Sen. Mike Lee harmed millions of hardworking people by supporting the government shutdown that cost our economy $24 billion, and now that the Republican/tea party ratings are at record lows, Lee is desperately attempting political face-saving by talking about solving our "crisis of opportunity."
Conveniently, the senator ignores his support of the Republican agenda that perpetuates this crisis by denying opportunities for the majority while rewarding the corporate/wealthy elite.
Examples: Republicans refuse to increase the minimum wage which would help lift millions out of poverty. Republicans are against equal pay for equal work for women. Republicans blocked the American Jobs Act, which would have created 2 million jobs rebuilding our infrastructure.
