Bush to working families: Drop dead

Nick Anderson of the LA Times writes:

The Republican-led House on Thursday narrowly upheld proposed labor rules that the Bush administration acknowledged could bump more than 600,000 workers from the ranks of those eligible for overtime pay.

Though the malAdministration admits 600,000 other estimates put the total as high as 8 million.

HINT: The scam the Republicans are working is the old exempt employees dodge.
