Congressional Pay Raise
Boy, isn’t our government great? Congress has done such an excellent job of representing all of us, with all of our different viewpoints and income levels — they need more compensation. Of course they deserve a raise. NOT!!!
And now for some irony: Congress is also “considering” raising the minimum wage for the first time in TEN FUCKIN’ YEARS. They probably won’t, but it’s such a nice gesture. The House Appropriations Committee has added an amendment to a larger bill, urging an increase in the minimum wage.
The amendment will probably be voted down when the bill comes to a full vote. But how nice of our Kings and Queens to think of all those lowly peons who cook their food, make their drinks, sweep their floors and clean their bathrooms.
But Congress’ own pay raise — that’s gone beyond the “consideration” level. It’s a done deal. Who decided that these worthless, under-worked over-paid shitsacks needed more money? THEY DID!!!
What a cushy job. Job Description: Spend most of your hours being wined and dined by lobbyists, going on expensive trips (paid for by lobbyists) and telling everybody else to fuck off. AND, you get to pick and choose your own salary. Nice work if you can get it.
And talk about equal opportunity: here we have an affirmative action program for dickwads, assholes and douchebags. And for some odd reason, that’s exactly what our government is made up of. Hmmm…how did this happen? Did we bring this on ourselves?
