The Congress voted way back when to give themselves an automatic raise each year. The reason is that the yearly raise would not have to come up for a
vote on the floor each year because of it being to political.
Now you see Congress gets their stimulus money raises yearly regardless, and for we peons we are last in line to get ours because of the special
interest groups. Let me ask you a question if your Senator or Congressman or Congresswoman is doing a bad job and not representing We The People do
they deserve a raise? If you did not do your job would you get a raise or would you be fired? Barney Franks heading up the banking committee why is he
still there since Trillions of dollars have been lost on his watch? Democrat or Republican if they are not doing the job they were elected too remove
them from office.
Who got the stimulus money first you guest it the banks and they set on the money. Again We The People are last to be represented, but easy targets to
be taken advantage of by the people that represent us.
Did you realize that the top 25% of the income earners pay 84% of all taxes to the IRS. That leaves close to 50% of the population that does not pay
taxes and is that fair? Oh I forgot we have become a socialist nation.
