Seriously, Nancy Pelosi? This isn’t a liberal/conservative issue. It’s about Congress clearly not being in touch with reality. Nevermind the fact that apparently it’s ok for everyone else in the world to get pay cuts as long as they get to keep their money. She’s saying that if you have a low paying job, you are not dignified or that there’s not really any dignity in the job. Awesome. I don’t even want to know what she thinks of people who can’t even find a job or are, God forbid, depending on unemployment and/or local/state/federal funding of some sort.
Some freshman representative made a big stink about this, too, in 2011 when they were damn near about to shut down the government. I have friends and ex-coworkers who were terrified about what a furlough would mean for them financially. Meanwhile this stupid b&$*# actually went on CNN to beg for understanding about how freaking expensive it is to be a Congress member and have to maintain two houses and blah blah blah. Seriously? Meanwhile I’m watching my friends’ Facebook feeds wondering if they had enough to pay their mortgages and feed their kids.
God please give me strength for our leaders clearly know not what they do.
