Obama, Republicans, trade fire over minimum wage, Benghazi

U.S. President Barack Obama pauses as he speaks about minimum wage at the White House in WashingtonBy Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama and his Republican opponents traded accusations over the minimum wage and a deadly attack at a U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya, on Wednesday in their drive to get voters focused on the November congressional elections. With five months before voters go to the polls, little actual governing is getting done and much of Washington is all about political posturing ahead of elections that may well determine Obama’s ability to govern in his last two years in office. Obama, whose tepid public approval rating threatens to sag Democratic attempts to maintain control of the Senate in November, appeared with low-wage workers in the White House East Room to press his case for reducing income inequality. He zeroed in on what Democrats consider a major issue for them heading into the campaign season – raising the minimum wage paid to millions of Americans.
