Happy New Year Congress! Why? Well, those of you in Congress just got a $4,700 pay raise that you voted to give yourselves. Even though Congress has an approval rating of just 9% (lower than the President), the economy is in recession, and unemployment is up, you think you're worth more money. You're not worth the money. Members of Congress need to step back and take a look at the pitiful job they're doing and then give the U.S. Taxpayer back every dime that is above the Federal Minimum Wage.
NOTE: Base salary for a U.S. Congressman is $174,000 of YOUR MONEY. Some in Congress make more money due to their position...Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi will now take $223,500 of YOUR MONEY per year.
Who says crime doesn't pay?
