Good old Fun Bags Flanagan getting yet another stipend for just doing the job she was elected to do.
She's a career politician, calling her a Hack is insulting to Hacks.
Think you can do a better job then run for that office. Always makes me laugh that those that bitch about someone doing a job do little more than complain!

I have an idea that "Little Jenny" could introduce to the hacks at the next meeting in Boston. I believe it coukd get the commonwealth back on track to recovery. That would include cutting services to ALL illegal immigrants, drug testing all gimme girls and gimme guys...they fail, they lose. get off your a$$es and get out there to head off fraud. If that don't worh I'll eat your underwear.

She's just being "rewarded" for obeying the head of the Senate and the rest of the "ruling class". Those who go against the "ruling class" don't get appointed to committee's and other perks.

Great, another political hack without any finanical background writing the state budget. Jen dosen't know what a budget is. She doesn't own a home or pay real estate taxes. All she knows how to do is raise taxes and provide provide funding for bleeding heart liberals.

What a great postion for someone who voted "YES" to pass bill H 1230 that would have allowed an individual who is not a citizen nor a permanent resident of the United States (can we just say "Illegal Alliens"??)to receive in-state tuition.

Well, figure the base salary for a senator is around $60,000 per year. Being on a committee pays anywhere from $7000 -$20,000 in additional pay per year. If one belongs to more than one commitee, their salary can exceed $100,000 per year in some cases. Not bad for what is basially a part time job. And that doesn't include the daily stipend for going to work, as well as pay for staff members and other benefits.

Fact is, people are for lack of a better term 'brianwashed' by voting for the same person time and time again. And the attitude that "republicans are evil" is prevalent in this state.

Wonder how many members of Jen's family work for the State? At least one works in the "probation" department.

Jen's repeated claim to fame is she was on former Mary Jane Simmons staff, and thus has the 'experience' to do the job. I recall meeting her at a public function a while ago and
when I asked her a question in regards to a political issue, she glared at me and walked away. So much for an opinion from an elected official....

LIES and MISTRUTHS, period. She is a professional and treats everyone fair and square. BTW, all you seem to do is bitch on these forums, you sound very unhappy. Maybe you need to see a specialist.
