Republicans are warning Democrats not to tamper with Senate-passed minimum wage legislation, saying the bill’s mix of $8.3 billion in tax breaks and a $2.10 an hour wage hike offers the right economic and political balance.

The Senate, in a 94-3 vote Thursday, passed an increase in the minimum wage from $5.15 to $7.25 an hour over two years. The bill also would extend small business tax cuts, close off some corporate tax loopholes and rein in executive compensation.
