Democrat Wants Pay Raise – Trey Gowdy Laughs

A few days ago, longtime liberal degenerate from Virginia Jim Moran (D-VA) announced that he believed that Congress was underpaid. UNDERPAID!

“There are too many members living and sleeping in their offices and it’s wrong. They can’t afford to live here and it’s wrong,” Moran told his appropriations committee colleagues. “I understand that is widely felt that [members] under perform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world and a lot of members can even afford to live decently when they are at their job in Washington,” he said. 

I think the greater issue here is that our Congressmen “earn” $174,000 a year for their part-time work. That is more than three times the median household income (About $51K) in the United States. But we pay for more than just their salary. We pay for their healthcare, their official (and sometimes unofficial) travel, we pay for their security, their retirement, and even PERSONAL SPENDING accounts.
