Democrats pull congressional pay raise bill off the table

June 10, 2019

  Last week the do-nothing Democrats in the House had the audacity to declare that the House members deserved a pay raise and were set to introduce legislation giving themselves a $4,500 raise.

  This was met with quite a bit of backlash, and I would be willing to bet the backlash was from both sides of the aisle, and it is just breaking right now that the Democrats have decided to pull the pay raise legislation off the table. Here is what we know:

House Democrats 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.

The bill was part of a roughly $1 trillion funding package scheduled to be voted on by the House this week.

  I think what was even more offensive to many of the American people besides the fact they actually thought they deserved a raise was the way the Democrats described the $4,500 raise as a “modest” pay increase.

  I do not know too many people, and I do no think you do either, who would describe a $4,500 pay raise in that manner and I think it shows just how out of touch these people really are despite their claims they understand the Middle Class and want to help them.

    The only thing they understand is power and money. How they get it and keep it is irrelevant to them. They’ll do anything they have to, to keep it and get it..
