Dems, White House optimistic stimulus deal could be reached this week after both sides make concessions
GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGuarenteed; if the law makers pay checks were effected by the passing of the stimulus plan, the citizens would have had their check a month ago.
PETE – REPETE: I sound like a parrot when I say; as long as it does not effect them directly, they could care less.
What can be so difficult for 435 fools to come to an agreement in short order when there are so many people starving and are in financial peril because they can not come to a simple agreement.
PETE – REPEAT: A few years back when there was a possibility of the government shutting down, all of the DC Duds (Congress and Senate) voted that their pay checks would not stop. That move took them one day to pass. We know how comes first on the list of priorities.
Not to mention; the bums only are physically obligated to work 146.7 days a year. What a contract they have.
Possibly if they had to live by the rules of the common man, they MIGHT get something accomplished. For their, what they would call, their ass breaking arrangement, they are paid (I should steal) 174,000$ a year.
It has been my opinion for years; the longer it takes for politicians to come to an agreement on any issue, the longer they drag it out, the more important they make their jobs look.
CONGRESSMAN’S PERKS: This is on top of what they are stealing.
- A base annual salary of $174,000.
- Free airport parking. …
- A free, on-site gym for House members. …
- Weakened insider trading restrictions. …
- Up to 239 days off. …
- Congress receives health-care subsidies under Obamacare. …
- A better retirement plan.
I am kind of surprised they did not finagle free groceries and booze into their contract.
I am absolutely positive; if they were to asked how hard they work, they would all tell us they are busting their ass. Many of the parasites have been on the governments payroll for decades. J J Jokin Joe) has been at the big buffet table for 47 years stuffing his face.
Did I mention; when they retire from doing nothing, they get full benefit for life!! GMAFB; who sweet is that.
BUTT; yet when it comes time for them to do the jobs for the American people they were elected for, they can’t be moved with a case of dynamite; constantly pointing the finger at the other guy.
I will continue to stand on my soap box and scream; they should be compelled to receive the same benefits as the rest of the America people; including, only time off for national holidays. Can we safely assume, if those guidelines were in place; is it possible they could get more accomplished than they do now??
The short and sweet version of this sad tale; our politicians are pathetic. According to recent polls; they have a whooping 17% approval rating. I think that is probably too high.
