In a tweet sent out by the group’s official Twitter account Friday evening, the committee said, “‘It’s time to raise a minimum wage that’s worth less than it was when Ronald Reagan was in Congress.’”

According to Twitchy, based on the surrounding tweets, it may be possible “that this gaffe was part of President Obama’s speech to the DNC.”
