Harry Reid Caves In

So much for the Democrats positioning themselves as deficit hawks:
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said Friday he'll back a package of tax breaks for small businesses if they are needed to win passage of an increase to the federal minimum wage.

"If it takes adding small business tax cuts to get a minimum wage increase, we are going to do it," Reid said at a press conference Friday afternoon.
Reid could have at least waited a while before showing his hand on this issue.

How often have the Republicans introduced a bill and then used the Dems' opposition as a chance to score points with the voters? Why is Reid passing up a golden opportunity to use a standoff over a higher minimum wage to define his party's values?
