According to The Hill , liberal activist Ralph Nader worked out the eye-popping calculation in an angry letter he sent to Speaker John Boehner
(R-Ohio) on Monday. From The Hill:
“While millions of Americans are working more and more for less and less, you and your House of Representatives seem to have no problem working less
and less for more and more,” he wrote.
Nader calculated that Boehner, who earns $223,500 a year as Speaker, will earn roughly $781 per hour over a three-and-half month span, given Congress
worked only eight days. Boehner has a higher salary than rank-and-file members.
So there you have it ATS...some friends of mine are barely making it working two jobs. Then you have "Mr. Boehner" and his statue smug tan face
collecting more in an hour than some people in a week. And the politicians wonder why they are hated so much. Would I give to play the song "Hells
Bells" for the Congress during session and blast it till their ear drums bleed.
