THE HILL

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that she opposes a cut in congressional pay because it would diminish the dignity of lawmakers’ jobs
.
“I don’t think we should do it; I think we should respect the work we do,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. “I think it’s necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded.”

    You can’t diminish what you no longer have.

    I don’t care what your profession is suppose to be. If you can’t figure out how to use a hammer, you don’t deserve jack shit. In fact, you should refund all money to taxpayers out of sheer embarrassment.

    Dignity? What would that dingbat know about dignity? She has personally destroyed the dignity of Congress, and women just by breathing, then she flaps her yap!

    Every day is a race between who is going to blurt out the most inane stupidity; Biden or Pelosi?

    IF Ms “we have to pass this bill, so you can find out what is in it” Polosi wishes to ensure the dignity of public office then the first thing she would do is resign. This evil, delusional bitch is out of touch with reality.

    Sooo, now the “dignity” of the job is centered around how much you are paid?
    I suppose firefighters, teachers, police, military, etc. are beneath Pelosi’s contempt because they are among the most underpaid folks around for the job they do.

    Dignity? Are effin kidding me?! There is zero dignity in congress. That was lost decades ago. The only dignity that you have is that which you bestow upon yourselves.

    Listen here crunt, I don’t pay for dignity. I pay for performance. Your ass and most all of congress’ asses would have been fired long ago.

    For the love of Pete, the arrogance of this bunch is staggering. Dignity? You might try a little humility.

    Pay cuts shouldn’t be limited to congress, they should extend to every federal employee in the US. Do that, and then we’ll talk about your dignity.

    Well Comrade Nancy, the average American family has taken a 10% pay cut in the last 4 years. Even more when tax hikes are taken into account. Great job of turning of turning the once prosperous middle class into turnip eating proles!

    I think that the official unemployment rate should be monitored by a non-governmental organization. When it reaches 6%, 50% of all Senators and 2 Representatives from each state are fired. If the state has just 1 or 2 reps, they keep them. When the unemployment rate reaches 7%, all Representatives save one from each state are fired. None of these firings are based on seniority; names of those staying are just pulled out of a hat.

    Along with this is a 25% pay cut at 6% unemployment and another 25% pay cut at 7% unemployment. If the rate jumps to 8%, all gov’t spending except for defense is suspended and all tax rates drop by 50%.

    These penalties last until the unemployment rate gets to 5%. At the next election of a president after the rate reaches 5%, those that were fired may run for the office they held, but not as an incumbent. They are required to tell the voters that they were fired for incompetence. If the unemployment rate goes up again and they are fired a second time, they are out of public office forever. No part of their salary may ever be paid from any public treasury.

    Part of this is that at any time when either a Senator or Representative becomes a millionaire while in office, they are immediately removed from the job and forbidden from holding any office of public trust again. This last part is not really a limitation on them being successful; it is a limitation on inflation. If they inflate the money too much, they will reach millionaire status quickly. If they are already a millionaire, they are paid a $1 per year salary. If the unemployment rate rises as per above, these millionaires will pay a penalty equal to 25% of the base congressional salary.

    It ain’t perfect but it works for me.

    if these alledged representatives had any dignity, they would work as PUBLIC SERVANTS with NO PAY OR BENEFITS till they figured out to fix the mess they have caused, that would include writing bills ONE PAGE LONG, WITH NO PORK, & READ THE FUKKER BEFORE THEY PASSED IT. am not sorry for the rant or CAPS.
