You've gotta admire Congressman Sali's gutso:
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) - Angered by the passage of a bill to increase the federal minimum wage, Idaho Congressman Bill Sali offered a symbolic proposal to abolish the law of gravity.Down with Gravity!
Getting rid of the pesky force that attracts objects to one another would lower obesity rates, the freshman Republican argues.
Sali says he was trying to make a point that laws to dictate wages and reduce gravity would both defy - quote- "natural laws."
Sali voted against the increase in the minimum wage, saying it's not tied to how much someone's work is worth.
