I cannot tell you how mad this makes me!!
I honestly have no idea what the bailout money total is at right now…I lost track after 800 billion…but here is the deal: if you get elected to a job, and you know that you are charging the people who elected one dollar more because you have had to bail out businesses…YOU DO NOT GET A RAISE!
After lecturing the automaker CEO’s to work for one dollar a year, the congress voted to give themselves a $4,700 annual raise, adding 2.5 million dollars to the taxpayer’s bill this year.
What’s worse, the average lawmaker takes home $169,300 a year with leadership taking home around $188K, and Nancy Pelosi taking home just over $217K!
What the…have these people lost their minds…become completely detached from reality…and by the way, how do I get a job where I get to vote to give myself a raise?
I am going to stop this post now, before it begins to include profanity
