WASHINGTON (AP)-- House lawmakers Wednesday voted to accept an approximately $4,400 pay raise that will increase their salaries to almost $170,000.

Can you believe these millionaires?

I say vote them out a.s.a.p. and get someone who will be a servant of the people, not a leech

Too many people are willing to go along with the system rather than fight it....that's why the communist freaks want to do away americans and embrace the forieners, because they shut-up, Americans are a pain in the ass.
What a Country Huh? If I were White I'd move to Canada!!

You know, if I remember correctly, the term full employment is defined as somewhere around 94% employed, or 4% unemployed -if you will. So, if that is indeed the case, then a 1.5% rate of real unemployment is really not too bad, don't you think? And BTW, if you think Americans are a pain in the ass, then why don't you just move the f**k out of this great country? We don't need a**holes like you here.
One other thing, a $4,400 pay raise is not that much at all, unless of course you are only making like $30,000 a year (or less, yikes). Then its a lot, for sure. But

I don't usually speak too mindless
Corporate brainwashed fools such as yourself, but a great country you say? then why do they need so many foreiners here too work for less money? A great country that has no affordable health care, but all the polictians and their families have it all at the taxpayers expense..And why are so many americans paying more money to have a job?(example) it cost the average worker $500.00 dollars a month just to make $1000.00, the average american is in debt trying to work himself out of debt just paying for a roof over their heads a car and buy food, if you are stupid enough to buy a home to pay for the next 30 years along with the other things you have to buy on credit; then you're just busy going 'BROKE'. Oh of course you have too get married of course to afford all this, and you never see your wife, or kids. Well I guess you're correct; this is a great country as long as you're a leech politician that drinks from the taxpayers 'troff'. As far as A-holes like me, Yes I'm sure they would rather have A-holes like you that like up the butt without "VASELINE'.

Tanglefoot, you are one sorry sack o S**t!!!!!!
what drugs are you on? this is the only country in the world were people are dying to get into. Why? Opportunity
If you want all the trappings then sacrifice is necessary. Affordable health care, its there anyone can get it. If you are fed up with the politicos getting a large share, then get someone to defeat them in the arena and change the culture in Washington. Good Luck!!!!

People are coming here too receive the free money that your government gives them in the form of 'GRANTS". Have you ever applied for a government Grant too start a business? LOL; just try it.
This money comes from the poor american taxpayer, but americans need not apply. I'm a sorry sack you say? OK, I give you one guess what you are? Ryhimes with 'rag'.

Not on any drugs; I don't like the drugs that your government allows in this great country so they can profit from it.
You say if I want all the trapping, sacrifice is necessary? Why? What do you mean by that??
Do you mean 'backstab spit on crap on cut throat piss on step on run over your grandmother in a wheel chair puck suck anyone kill your fellow american brother or sister just to make a $dollar$? Is that what you mean? WOW, No wonder everyone hates Americans. Well at least when you die you can tell the one person at your funeral that you were not a 'touchy feelly' guy.
