The bitter, wrinkled prune of a woman who is Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) believes that cutting the pay of the lawmakers in Congress would diminish the inherent dignity of the jobs congressmen do. I’m sorry, just what in the hell is she talking about.
Congress has arguably done nothing, nothing for the last four years and yet we should keep paying them at all? They have not passed a budget in four years….four years people. No budget. This isn’t like a household thing, this is the budget for an entire country, and they haven’t done one. In addition they have let sequestration threaten the economy through their inaction. Politics as usual has outweighed the solving of an economic crisis.
True we have had a divided Congress for a while now but even a divided Congress had gotten things done in the past. This Congress has failed to pass even one piece of significant legislation. The 112th Congress and now probably the 113th Congress may go down in history as two of the worst congressional sessions in American history, and that is counting the 37th Congress (Civil War) and the 80th Congress (Truman – the Do Nothing Congress).
Between the two of them they managed to pass legislation that produced economic growth, ended slavery, and set a National Security Act. These recent Congress have been more content to bloviate, engage in chest puffery, and talk about how it would be so much better if everyone would cave to their whims. PASS A BUDGET!!!
Why are we even still paying these people. They sit around on their cushioned butts these libtards and conservaholes and tell us how we ought to live our lives. These people don’t realize and the American people have seemed to forgotten these are our servants. Congress serves at our pleasure and are beholden to us, we are not their subjects as they so happily pretend the situation is there in Washington.
If your employees weren’t doing their job, you’d do more than withhold their pay, you’d fire their asses. Now we can only fire our House once every two years and our 1/3 of our Senate with them, but we could tell them that recent job performance has indicated their pay is too high for the quality of work they produce, then proceed to slash it. Maybe if there was a consequence for a lazy Congress, they might get off their butts and do something. Until then, they can SHUT UP and PASS A BUDGET.
There should be very little dignity among a group of people who can’t even perform the basic tasks of their jobs. It is shameful and they all ought to act like it. But of course that doesn’t affect her royal highness Pelosi, she has blinders on, or just wants to pretend she is so much better than the citizen scum she controls in her district. “Let them eat debt.”
