House Democrats want to give themselves a $4,500 raise

June 4, 2019

  Since winning control of the House in 2018 the Democrats have done absolutely nothing but attempt to stop the President and argue among themselves as to whether or not they should attempt to impeach Donald Trump. As for having an agenda, it is all hate Trump and nothing else.

  But apparently they believe that all this nothing deserves a pay raise, and a rather large one at that. According to this story the Democrats in the House are proposing a $4,500 pay raise for themselves. Here is more:

House spending leaders want to break a decade long pay freeze and give members of Congress a cost-of-living bump that could pad their salaries with an extra $4,500 next year.

Congressional salaries have been frozen at about $174,000 since 2009, when Democrats controlled Congress and decided to suspend automatic cost-of-living increases while heading into the 2010 election year.

Now, House Democrats say they are moving forward with fiscal 2020 funding bills that won’t block those pay increases, which are guaranteed by a 1989 federal ethics law.

  But of course we cannot lay all the blame for this at the feet of the Democrats because if there is one thing both parties can agree upon it is that they are underpaid.

“There is strong bipartisan support for these modest inflation adjustments,” said Evan Hollander, a spokesperson for the House Appropriations Committee, noting that the panel does not have to take action to allow the automatic increases and will simply be forgoing language that would block the raises.

  Don’t you just love the way they try to frame a $4,500 pay raise as “modest?” The Democrats keep telling us they want to help the forgotten middle class and this is the first economic package they put forward? I think we see where there priorities are.

    They have time for this nonsense but not the border? Fix the border then talk to me about a raise.

    “Since stealing control of the House in 2018 the Dem’s …”
    Cost of living for maintaining their mansions has gone up Steve dontchano. Plus as more truth’s revealed – re all their ‘hard work’ – they’ll want to take a trip out of the country… to get away & take a break.
    Some’ll be needing it for lawyer fees, so they’ll be wanting ‘more’ no doubt. 🤭

      “Stealing” is a much better word! 🙂 Just think how much our cost of living has gone up if theirs has gone up that much! I hope you are right about them needing it for lawyer’s fees.

        Yes, what worse about this Steve is these, who are our enemy (who consider themselves the ‘new America’ (Yahoo referred to as ‘Making America’ – mindset & ideology) are being paid by the very taxpayers they’re bent on destroying.
        Reminds me of the ‘same ungodly spirit’ behind killing off the Native Indians, taking their land and turning them into alcoholics & depopulating them with disease. This is a “Sick” group of parasites that need to be removed or they just continue to takeover and get worse.
        For those who don’t believe ‘evil exists’ they’re seeing it first hand (if they have any ability to ‘reason’ or are still too enslaved under the strong delusional “spell”) with ‘promoting open borders for all’ & increase baby sacrificed on the alter of ‘feeding spiritual entities’ that empower them. These ‘congress men/women (?) are ‘part of this system’: https://biblearchaeology.org/research/contemporary-issues/2243-abortion-and-the-ancient-practice-of-child-sacrifice?highlight=WyJhYm9ydGlvbiIsImFib3J0aW9uJyJd
        🙏 their defeat – all of them ‘worldwide’. 🤺 💥

    They should pass a law that they only get paid on days they accomplish something (introduce or pass a bill, solve the immigration problem, introduce or pass a budget, vote FOR the border wall, etc.). If they don’t accomplish something (beside investigation something or someone) they DON’T GET PAID. Also they should not get monthly vacations or overseas trips until they solve some of they problems they have been paid to solve for the past 10 years. They didn’t do anything while Obama was prez because HE did everything by executive orders and seldom consulted congress. Sorry they can’t live on $174,000 a year but I have to live on less than $30,000 so hope you will forgive me if I don’t pity them their money problems.

      Doesn’t it just irk you that these people have the gall to claim $4,500 is a modest pay increase!? It shows you how out of touch they are.
