Thinks that a pay cut for her is below her dignity

    She is below my dignity. I'd fire her today if I could.

    If Congress does not act on the sequester by March 1, automatic spending cuts will go into effect, and one of the things that will be affected will be Congressional salaries. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi came out firmly opposed to cutting lawmakers’ pay, saying it would be beneath the dignity of members of Congress.

    RELATED: Nancy Pelosi To Fox’s Chris Wallace: It’s A ‘False Argument To Say We Have A Spending Problem’

    Pelosi told reporters on Thursday that allowing the automatic cuts should be “out of the question,” and responded to a question about whether members of Congress would be willing to accept a pay cut.

    “I don’t think we should do it; I think we should respect the work we do. I think it’s necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded…

    “”It’s a hard question to ask me because most of my colleagues are the breadwinners in their families. A pay cut to me doesn’t mean as much.”

    You beat me to it. I just posted the same thing and missed your post.

    To the mods, please feel free to either merge my thread with this one, or delete mine.

    And for the record, I don't think that many of our congress people have any dignity. When they run, they know what they're getting into. If not, then stay at home and get a real job. See how that feels.

    I agree with the article's author. They should have to face the music that their genius creates which would be less pay. Where does this woman come from anyway? They are public servants and if anything should take a cut rather than a raise. And all the horse hockey she and her party create for us to eat and digest? Gimme a Break Nancy Numb Nutts! Below your dignity my Butt!!! Anybody that spews the crap out of their mouth you do, Has NO dignity in the first place.

    Well, actually she lost me a while before even that genius statement. But that statement is like buying a safe. Then writing the combination down on paper and putting it inside and locking it up for safe keeping. Well Kinda-sorta!!!

    Lots of millionaires in Congress, and old Dingbat Nancy Pelosi is one. I think they should have a means test for their salary in the same manner that they want to means test Social Security and Medicare benefits.

    I don't know if you guys have ever seen any of these people's official offices in the capitol. but it's like something out of the Palace of Versailles. Fire places. Furniture upholstered in the skins of unborn Italian peasants. This woman is one of the most arrogant in DC.
    The good news is now that that statement, and others, is on the Web. It's always there.
    Which means after the revolution when we set up the People's Tribunals, all that can be used against her in addition to treason charges.

    "Pelosi" and "dignity" in the same sentence- - - - - -don't they call that an oxymoron? Or maybe just plain "moron"?

    There's a recent news story about Senator Rand Paul returning $600k of his office budget to the U.S. Treasury. As good as this sounds, it's only about 20% of the $3.5 million budget he and other senators get to run their offices.

    This is insane!

    We have congress men and women who live like kings and spend like sailors on shore leave. Yet, when you ask them to make a sacrifice that's comparable to what they ask of their constituents, they act like they're being mistreated. I think that cutting them back on what they make and the amount of their office budget might be a good start. I'd really prefer term limitations, but I'm not holding my breath on that one.

    I think Congressmen should be paid $50,000,000 a year........then maybe someone worth a crap would run!

    Rather than lose her dignity, I think I've got the perfect job for Nancy. It fits her special skill set to a T.

    I beg to differ. The new high tech crash test dummies are WAY more intelligent than Nancy Pelosi! :rotflmao:

    Yes! Pass whatever it is. Not to worry the idiot media will report 10% of whatever the h*ll it was. Congress should have to pay to be there. That's how it used to be.

  • orchidmanorchidman Senior Member Posts: 8,181 Senior Member
    How about a trade-off. She gets to keep her full salary but has to forgo things like armed bodyguards, has to sit for a CCW.........in short, she gets treated just like the rest of the population.

    Maybe then, she will draft legislation that makes some sense...........................but I wouldnt hold my breath.

    I would be for furloughing Congress till we need them and can afford them again, like they do to civil servants. One year would be a good start.

    Or, if that's too unrealistic, at least just dismiss them without pay until they can guarantee to pass a budget through both houses that will produce a surplus..

    I don't understand. Why, when there is a budget crises, is it always the social security or VA checks that are threatened? Why aren't the President and Congress first in line to be cut? They should have to spend their own money to fund their staff and take no pay until this thing is solved. Why don't they shut the AC off in the Capitol to save money? Orchid, correct me if I am wrong, but when you are a "name" for Lloyd's of London isn't all your money on the hook for losses? Why can't we do that? The founders pledged their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. Now we know that many in Congress have no honor and who would want their lives, but maybe they should have to pony up their fortunes until they get things under control. I know it wouldn't help the deficit, the amount they are over spending is too large, but it might motivate them. Problem is we might just have penniless people running.

    Pelosi is an ignorant and arrogant D-bag......sorry for insulting the D-bag, which actually serves a purpose. What makes me scratch my head is why the good people of California haven't voted her out yet!?

    Her congressional district is the granola bowl; what ain't fruits and nuts is flakes! THAT'S why she gets reelected.
