Give Congressmen a Pay Raise?

It's a COLA Increase'

Original Article

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.

The United States has a long tradition of reliance on a two-party political structure. For that structure to function effectively both parties need to be competent and responsible. Unfortunately, that is not the case now. The lineup of Democrat presidential candidates currently stands at 25 and growing. Conrad Black has aptly described them as “unelectable non-entities.” The long and growing list is more like a tower of babel than a collection of credible leaders. Evidence of that is that leading the race currently is former senator and vice president Joe Biden. Beyond the confines of the Democrat Party the reaction to Biden’s candidacy is typically, “Is this a joke?”

Sarah Sanders was a complete diamond in speaking for and defending the man we elected, President Trump. She was so good it is hard to think who could replace her. She was poised, ladylike, on target, and could punch back as hard as the drive-bys and Democratic-operatives-with-bylines in the press could deliver. She got rid of bee ess the press had long since dismissed as unserious, such as the presidential press conference, something they are suddenly mourning big crocodile tears about as they look for something to criticize her.

She is so excruciatingly, insufferably, painfully stupid, shallow, pandering, desperate, and without ethics. Kirsten Gillibrand. United States Senator from New York. Candidate for 2020 Democrat Presidential nomination. Dolt. She was not initially on my radar. I follow the news like a hawk, but she always was so politically lightweight — make thatbantamweight — that she did notregister. Here in California, “register” is a term we often use for earthquakes. The Northridge shaker registered at 6.7. A solid 3.5, give or take, will wake you up. Gillibrand registers at 0.0, give or take a zero.

Michael Avenatti, the lawyer who represented porn star Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against U.S. President Donald Trump, has been sued by a paraplegic former client who accused him of siphoning away a $4 million settlement he had won. Geoffrey Johnson is seeking at least $9.5 million, plus punitive damages, from Avenatti and several former colleagues in his civil lawsuit filed with the Orange County Superior Court in California. “I never thought I would get victimized by my own attorney,” Johnson, who uses a wheelchair, said at a press conference on Thursday. “I wish he had just given me my money.”
