Congress gets a raise

Over $4000 a year raise. Here the average Joe is counting pennies and being taxed to death and these (mostly) independently wealthy, professional politicians with perq's coming out of their (pick an orifice) are getting a steenkeen raise!!!!

Cost of living index my aching (pick a body part).

I say give 'em another raise -- a really big one -- and make 'em stay home where they can't add to the ridiculous # of laws we already have. It would be cheaper in the long run!

Hell, why not give 'em all a vacation! Actually we should force them to take this vacation since our tax dollars are payin' for it anyways... The vacation will climax with them all yankin' down their pants and bending over right in the middle of P-Town. I'm sure there'll be plenty of folks there willing to give them the biggest raise of their life! That's one I'll look forward to reading in the news as I'll certainly not be there to witness it.

That should read FOR life. You do know that even when they are voted out of office, they continue to get paid their salary until they die.

Politicians, gotta love 'em because your paying them until the day you die!

You seem to forget about the Estate Taxes, Inheritance taxes, Burial taxes, etc.


You'll be paying them until THEY die (without them paying any of these taxes)

One of the few jobs where you can do everything wrong and still get a raise!
One of the others is a weatherman!

Kinda like being on the CCR Bored of Directors. I know my salary doubled this year.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

OK, I left myself open for that one.

But since Bill was in the last one, and could be in the next one, it doesn't matter. I guess it depends on what the definition of "is" is...
