OK, I just had to start this thread only because, this Congressman is complaining they don't make enough money.
YES. It's True,,, Pick Yourself Up Off The Floor,,, Wipe the Buggers and Slime off your computer screen, That's his Hard Luck Story and he's Sticking
Why,,,, Because some of them can't afford to keep two Luxury homes, one in D.C. and the other in their home state.
Poor Baby,,,, some of you are on the verge of foreclosure or jobless and he may have to live in a less than Spacious Apartment!
Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.) thinks members of Congress aren't paid enough.
“I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid,” Moran said. “I understand that it’s widely felt
that they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world.”
Rank-and-file members of Congress are paid $174,000 annually. However, Moran says, it's just not enough, as members often have to maintain two
residences: one in their home district and one in Washington, D.C.
"A lot of members can’t even afford to live decently in Washington," he said, noting that some of his colleagues sleep in their offices or rent
"tiny" apartments to save money.
I think someone needs to take your Head Out Of Obama's @ss Long Enough For You To See The Current Condition Of The Average American Citizen,,,,, is
that asking to much?
Moran plans to propose an amendment to the bill providing a per diem allowance for members to cover their housing costs. Although he
acknowledges his amendment is highly unlikely to pass, he says he wants to publicly highlight the issue.
"You won't get a lot of votes," Rep. Tom Cole (R-Okla.) said of Moran's proposal. "But you'll make a lot of friends."
Maybe you should follow obamas advice he gave some people last month if they could afford to sign up for Obamacare, you know, that healthcare plan
you're Exempt From!
Just cancel Cable & Phones
This is a few days old, but it’s amusing nonetheless. Barack Obama appeared in a town hall for Spanish-language media on March 6th to
discuss ObamaCare and promote enrollments, and got challenged by a viewer on the economics of it for low-income Americans who are now forced to buy
comprehensive health insurance. On a $36,000 annual income, the requirement to buy the broad policy rather than something a little more economical —
say, hospitalization coverage combined with an HSA, a strategy which is now all but illegal — makes it impossible to comply. Pshaw, Obama
replied. Why, all those low-income folks need to do is stop spending money on luxuries like cable television and cell phones!
Maybe you could cut back, or better yet all of you that think you're not paid enough,,, how about you just Quit and go home, we don't need you that
badly. I'm sure there's someone out there that's do your job better for Half your pay just for you and your families health benefits!!!
