We give Congress a popular approval rating of 8 percent - and then proceed to re-elect 97 percent of them! Now, they pay us back for our stupidity by raising their own pay - for superior performance, I suppose.
It's like giving a guy off the street your car keys, paying him to take you home - and then giving him a pay raise when he takes you where he wants to go, instead. Then, give him the keys to your house as well and pay him rent to live in your own house. If you do that, you have just become the quintessential American voter.
Just read this:
"A crumbling economy, more than 2 million constituents who have lost their jobs this year, and congressional demands of CEOs to work for free did not convince lawmakers to freeze their own pay.Instead, they will get a $4,700 pay increase, amounting to an additional $2.5 million that taxpayers will spend on congressional salaries, and watchdog groups are not happy about it."(Read more ...)
That's the problem with "watchdog groups" - they watch too much and do too little.
Our politicians are laughing at us - and rightly so. As long as we continue to vote the way we do, we deserve to be laughed at and ignored.
The bottom line: You can either continue as you did before, whatever that was - or join the Lunch Mob Revolution.
