Shame and gall on Capitol Hill
Although I didn’t see this in or on the news, stand by for another government ripoff!
While the economy is going nowhere fast, members of Congress have given themselves a substantial pay raise.
It’s hard to believe that while city, county and state agencies are downsizing and finding ways to cut employee pay and benefits, Congress has the gall to accept their automatic pay raises. It is unconscionable for members of Congress to raise their salaries while thousands of Americans are being laid off and losing their homes.
These ethically challenged members of Congress definitely do not deserve a pay raise at this crucial time of economic distress.
Can you say “shameful”?
