Gary Ackerman is a pompous political A--S--S that believes taking a junket to Israel is "overtime" - and that he "earned" his raise! Absolutely clueless jack-a$$! Newsflash, Gary-san - how many years did you work in the PRIVATE SECTOR before you started sucking off the public teat? Most SALARIED workers put in tens, if not hundreds, of work hours a year and are not compensated for it - and do you think these same people are seeing even a 2.9% pay increase this coming year?!?!?!? Since you don't have a clue about the economic downturn, Ackerman-meister, let me fill you in - many workers - both blue collar and white collar - have LOST their jobs (at least 2.8 million in the last year alone), OR have taken a wage cut or a wage freeze - what say you to that, you career political hack?!?!?!? Judging from the Letters to the Editor Section in today's (Sunday's) Newsday, you don't have too many people agreeing with you - including MANY OF YOUR CONSTITUENTS. Get a clue Gary-boy - serve your constituents and your country FIRST, and can the political junkets in these dire economic times - unless your flying in a jump seat of a Air Force Cargo Plane that's making the trip anyway (for military reasons)- which we all know that YOU DIDN'T. And, to the rest of the Long Island Congressional Delegation - along with our two "esteemed" U.S. Senators - Chuck "Photo-Op" Schumer and Hillary "Carpetbagger" Clinton - shame on ALL OF YOU FOR ACCEPTING THIS RAISE! Why don't you follow the Indiana Congressional Representatives example, and REFUSE THE RAISE???? No backbone in any of you...THE CORRUPTION CONTINUES...
