It's a COLA Increase'

At her weekly news conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was asked whether it's appropriate at this time for Congress to give itself a pay raise."It's not a pay raise, it's a COLA increase," Pelosi responded. "And whether that comes to be, I don't know. It would have to be a bipartisan initiative."In this case, Congress could allow itself a COLA (Cost of Living Adjustment) that would raise lawmakers' pay by $4,500 to $178,500, up from the current $174,000. (According to the Congressional Research Service, members of both the House and Senate are paid a salary of $174,000. The House and Senate majority and minority leaders are paid $193,400; and

No. COLA is the $40 increase in SS and take back $20 in increases Medicare. That is COLA. You just want a raise and we aren't grovelling about it anymore.

Sorry, but just one other thought, Did you finish that budget yet? Until you *do* your job how can you justify any increase?

Not to worry. Democrats need pay raises so they can redistribute the extra money to the poor, which is what they do. Because they're compassionate. And you aren't.

Almost $200,000 a year for those incompetent losers. I think the pay raise should be put to a vote of taxpayers.

Politicians go to D.C. with $200 in the bank and leave 30 years later with millions. They engage in insider trading (not illegal for them), grease the skids for family and friends by exerting influence to get them cushy jobs involving no work (and never a real product) and fat contracts all at the expense of actual, productive citizens. These people are utterly shameless and, what with the complete lack of consequences for their corruption, are out in the open in their slimy dealings - almost as if they want to rub it in our faces. Given the amount of money made by these people through influence peddling, graft, corruption, skimming from campaign contributions (legal bribery) they SHOULD BE PAYING US FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME WEALTHY DESPITE THE LACK OF TALENT, INTELLIGENCE AND INTEGRITY displayed by damned near every one of them. The only thing these people are good at is scamming the public for votes and spreading around other people's money to pay off constituents and ensure reelection.

"COLA increase"? More lib doublespeak. Lauughable. Libs and Dems are forever trying to change the meaning of language for their convenience. (One of the best examples is "women's reproductive health," which really means butchering unborn children.) Libs and Dems are forever trying to rewrite history for their convenience, too.

A $40 dollar COLA for SS recipients and a $4500 COLA for congress, because the cost of living is so much cheaper for the peons. Of course, congresses COLA comes from that bottomless pocketbook, called the American taxpayer. The SS COLA has to come from the broke SS trust fund, raided by congress to fund all of their pet projects, and to support all the illegal democrat voters that have never contributed that they are flooding the country with. So, HELL no!

People at these pay levels don't get COLAs. As an engineer, I got paid increases for my productivity and accepting increased responsibility. Of course if we did that for most of those in Congress, THEY would have to pay US. The high rate of pay for Congress critters attracts professional politicians who are little more than grifters. Tell you what. Agree to limit Senators to 2 terms and Representatives to 6 terms and you can have your raise.

A raise ? Everyday you insult taxpayers. You work part time and get paid full time while lining your own pockets. Every politician in this country comes to US with lies and promises asking for donations and our votes. They are elected to represent We the People of These United States of America and to uphold the Constitution as it stands. And what do they do? Fight tooth and nail for illegals. All across America are citizens earning less than $1000 a month on SS. They are punished because they went on SSDI early. They live in poverty while an illegal gets cradle to grave care and pop out Anchor Babies. Could We vote on your raise ?

People sometimes say that we should cut congress' pay until they actually do something. That won't work. They aren't in it for the money; they're in it to get the 'fame' that they would not otherwise be able to earn. If we could only threaten to reduce their fame and power they might finally act on our behalf.

Washington–Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has won back his full pension as part of a settlement of his lawsuit arising from his firing during the Trump administration more than three years ago, his lawyers announced Thursday. McCabe, a frequent target of then-President Donald Trump’s ire, was fired in March 2018 by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions after the Justice Department’s inspector general determined he had misled internal investigators about his involvement in a news media leak. The termination came hours before he was to have retired, denying him his pension. McCabe has denied intentionally deceiving anyone, was never criminally charged and blasted his firing as politically motivated.

During the 2020 election, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg spent hundreds of millions of dollars to turn out likely Democratic voters. But this wasn’t traditional political spending. He funded a targeted, private takeover of government election operations by nominally nonpartisan — but demonstrably ideological — nonprofit organizations.Analysis conducted by our team demonstrates this money significantly increased Joe Biden’s vote margin in key swing states.
