Pelosi wanted more money – then the American people showed up.
Get a load of this! The “average Joe” in Congress makes a staggering $174,000 a year.
And Ms. Pelosi, as Speaker of the House, makes over $220,000. That’s the kind of salary a good business owner earns.
Heck, most Americans would love pulling down six figures, right?
But apparently, that’s not enough for these entitled lawmakers.
They were actually planning on giving themselves a $4,500 pay raise. Courtesy of you, the taxpayer, of course.
As you expected, Americans were outraged. And now Democrats slinking back to the swamp with their heads hanging low.
House Democratic leaders are postponing consideration of a bill that would include a pay raise for members of Congress, after facing a major backlash from the party’s most vulnerable members.
Aw, I feel so bad for these rich, selfish, out-of-touch Democrats! They had to shelve their pay raise because their vulnerable members were facing backlash from their constituents.
Such poor victims!
Is my sarcasm getting through?
These people have done nothing to help Americans over the last few years. In fact, they have fought wildly to stop President Trump from making America great again.
They’ve spent considerable time and tax money launching pointless investigations to impeach your duly elected president.
And for that, they demanded a raise! In any other industry, all of them would have been fired.
Congressmen make serious cash during their time in office. People like Schumer and Pelosi—who have been there for decades—are straight up millionaires.
Should people get filthy rich representing the American people?
I don’t think so.
And yet they wanted more of your money. Sickening.
