Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Says, Even Memebers of Congress Live Paycheck to Paycheck … WHAT!!!
COULD ANYONE BE MORE OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAN NANCY PELOSI, OTHER THAN BARACK OBAMA?
The delusional Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said the following at a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday in the run up to impending battle and vote on Capitol Hill over Department of Homeland Security funding, “I don’t know about you, but I think almost everybody I know cannot live without having our paycheck on time — members of Congress, even.” WHAT!!! Some one better call Pelosi a WAHmbulance.
SanFran Nan said, “but I think almost everybody I know cannot live without having our paycheck on time”. Who is she kidding, who is the “EVERYBODY” that Pelosi knows who goes paycheck to paycheck? Pelosi would not be caught dead hanging around the common folk who live paycheck to paycheck. Pelosi, or her ilk would not know in the slightest what it means to struggle. Oh, is she having to do without an extra Botox treatment these days? Pelosi ranks at number 14 in CQ/Roll Call’s list of wealthiest members of Congress, with a net worth of around $29 million. I am so sure she hangs around the common folk who live paycheck to paycheck. Of course Pelosi gets more because she has a ranking position in the House.
Pelosi’s minimum net worth in 2013 was slightly more than $29 million, a few million more than what she reported in 2012.
The boost in the House minority leader’s personal finances is, in part, attributable to stock investments associated with her husband that grew significantly over the course of a year. Paul Pelosi’s investment in Comcast, for instance, doubled between 2012 and 2013, from at least $250,000 to at least $500,000. Meanwhile, his stake in a real estate development project in Sacramento, Calif., skyrocketed from at least $1 million to at least $5 million.
Lawmakers are strapped for cash like ordinary “We the People” American folks? Get bent Nancy. Pelosi needs to retire. This might be one of the most embarrassing comments she has ever made, and trust me, she has made many. Let us never forget the infamous, “we must pass the bill in order to find out what s in it.”
A member of Congress makes $174,000, meanwhile an average American makes $55,424 and many others who live paycheck to paycheck make much less than the average. As Melissa Francis from the Fox Business Network said on this morning’s Bulls& Bears, “they have no idea what it is like to live in an average household and trying to compare themselves is disingenuous, pathetic and disgusting.” BINGO!!!
Another one of the Bulls & Bears nailed it … “Congress should be responsible when dealing with the affairs of whether it is DHS or whether its shutting down the government, everybody expects a paycheck.” Then comes the money quote … “The problem is that Congress is so out of touch, so out of touch with everyday Americans, they don’t even know how to speak to everyday Americans on behalf of everyday Americans. When you are running for Congress the average campaign is 2 million, 1.5 million. Who’s is going to be able to raise that kind of money, rich people. That is why we have a bunch of rich Congressman.”
Check out how the median income for families in the United States has gone backwards as adjusted for inflation.
How sad and pathetic is this that we have an elite class of rich people in charge? Guess what, America you are to blame. This is hardly what our Founding Fathers ever envisioned. You have elected and continue to reelect US Representatives and Senators that are so out of touch and do not represent you in any shape, matter or form. My personal believe is that Congresses pay should be tied to the average pay scale for Americans and then raised 10% or 20%, not the over 300% it currently is. This way there will be no incentive for “forever” politicians and it will not be a lifetime job. Also, their pension needs to be nixed completely.
