So it’s time to raise a minimum wage that is worth less than it was when Ronald Reagan was in office.In what turned out to be a less than successful attempt to quote the president, the DNC quickly tweeted the president's remark, but with one key difference:
"It's time to raise a minimum wage that's worth less than it was when Ronald Reagan was in Congress" #RaiseTheWage #DNC14Reagan, of course, never served in Congress. A day later, the DNC tweet with the erroneous quote is still posted, and no correction has been issued.
