The Speaker of the House is paid $223,500.00 annually, and the House Majority and Minority Leaders and the President Pro Tempore are each paid $193,400 yearly; the rest of the gang, poor souls, only receive $174,00.00.
Did you know that they receive mileage from their home to Washington, DC? The minimum amount paid for this benefit is $6,200.00! (Is that for every time they travel to DC? I’m not sure, but I bet they do)!
THAT IS WHAT THOSE S.*.*.’s WHO JUST SHUT DOWN OUR GOVERNMENT AND PUT THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE OUT OF WORK EARNS, AND THIS INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND IN http://www.nolabels.org/blog/congressional-compensation-how-much-do-members-congress-get-paid AND IT IS VERIFIED IN JANUARY, 2013, BY: http://www.senate.gov/CRSReports/crs-publish.cfm?pid=’0E%2C*PL%5B%3D%23P%20%20%0A
AND I JUST HEARD ON THE NEWS A FEW MINUTES AGO THAT ALTHOUGH SOCIAL SECURITY CHECKS WILL STILL BE SENT OUT, THEY MAY BE SENT OUT TWO WEEKS LATE IN NOVEMBER!
It is my personal opinion that the pay and benefits to all of those representatives that voted to shut down our government be suspended immediately and until our government is restarted – and I hope that all of you who read this feel the same way!!!
