Rep. Sean Duffy Complains About His $174,000 Salary: ‘I Drive A Used
At a townhall meeting in Amery, Wisconsin last week, the “Real
World’s” Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) exposed just how out of touch with
ordinary Americans he is.
According to progressive blog Rightguardia, one constituent — an
underemployed construction worker — explained that his wife, a
teacher, may have to take a cut in wages if Wisconsin’s draconian
budget bill goes through.
“I’m just wondering what your wage is and if you guys would be willing
to take a cut,” he asked Duffy.
Displaying that delicate sense of empathy characteristic of
conservatives, Duffy whined about his $174,000 congressional salary
and his “used minivan.”
When the man pointed out his salary was “three times what I make,”
Duffy reassured him that “I have more debt than you.”
“I’m not living high off the hog,” he added
Duffy’s salary is indeed about three times Wisconsin’s (and the
national) median income.
What’s more, Wisconsin’s unemployment rate is 7.4 percent statewide,
and 8.2 percent in Wausau, a city Duffy represents.
But if Duffy wants to “start getting real” and relieve some of that
financial burden, he could sell that second home in Iron River, WI he
Baw haw haw. Another day, another disgusting view of the public
spectacle of Republican hypocrisy.

republicans get gets lots of money but doesn't know how to stay out of

An awesome anecdote about the 2008 election: Obama kept his personal
accounts perfectly balanced, and kept his campaign under budget.
And, even beyond Sarah Palin's mindless shopping sprees, McBush blew
out his personal credit cards on the campaign trail.
Now which one would you rather have running an economy, hmm?
How much mouthwash do you go through each day? :)

He's a public employee, therefore he is entitled to his $174K salary
plus full medical benefits and pension and tenure for life. The only
difference between Rep. Duffy and a public teacher in Wisconsin is
that Congress has no union.
Why do leftards hate unions?
The other difference is the Congress sets their own salary, dumbass.
Not since the 27th Amendment:
"No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and
Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of
Representatives shall have intervened."
-- Amendment 27 (ratified May 7, 1992)
Jesus Christ - how will he afford all the bribes his job requires??!
(And how's your health coverage, motherfucker..?)
Dank, in addition to being crazy and delusional, is also illiterate.
He doesn't even understand that congress does set their own salary and
that the only restriction the Constitution imposes is that it not take
effect until after the next election.
