Just in time:

WASHINGTON, July 27 — Under intense pressure from their moderate wing, House Republican leaders moved on Thursday toward allowing a vote Friday on an increase in the minimum wage before sending anxious lawmakers home for a month of campaigning in the battle for control of Congress.

They're counting on everyone forgetting that they've blocked any raise since 1997. They have a moderate wing? Doesn't the GOP leadership have a rule about only allowing votes on bills that have the support of a majority of their members? They're so anxious about November they're getting bipartisan? Yeah, right.
