Nancy Pelosi begs us not to ruin her dignity by cutting her paycheck
MSNBC ^ | 2/15/2013 | MSNBC

Posted on 02/16/2013 11:14:32 AM PST by Dallas59

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is speaking out against a cut in congressional pay because she says it will undermine the dignity of their positions. "I think we should respect the work we do," Pelosi said. "I think it's necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded."

She’s nothing more than a two-dollar whore for Obama, or ANY other Democrat President. Where is the ‘dignity’ in that?

I think it's necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded.

Is that a misquote, or does she naturally talk in gibberish now?

I may be mistaken, but I thought the reward for dignity was respect, not money. And those who exhibit no dignity get no respect, which probably explains low Congressional popularity ratings.

How about the 300,000,000 + people that are being beat over the head with your sour politics. Your rating as leader of the Congress was one of the lowest ever.

I think Pelosi and her family already have more money than they need. She needs to return 70% of it to the government. The “media” has finally brainwashed me. I hate “the rich”. Especially “rich” public servants.

"I think we should respect the work we do," Pelosi said.

She gives real meaning to the term, "Contempt of Congress."

I'm going to file this one away for the next time a major recession hits and my company makes me take yet another 10% haircut in pay.

"Boss, you can't cut my pay because it will undermine the dignity of my position. You should respect the work I do for you. I think it's necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded."

Yep, that'll work just perfectly.

Dignity has to do with honor, integrity, and values... not wages.

Nancy Pelosi has done as much or more than anybody else in Congress to destroy the dignity of the office

(and no amount of tax money can restore it)

"I think we should respect the work we do," Pelosi said.

Doesn't sound like the words of one who recognizes that her position is to SERVE by the consent of the governed. Congress works for us. Employees of ours shouldn't be telling us what they intend to earn. She has it backwards. We're fools if we allow these folks to keep gorging themselves at our expense.

If we cut their pay how will they be able to fly to the Dominican Republic and have sex with under-age girls? Will they have to text pictures of their willies to their girlfriends using Obamaphones? Oh, the humanity.

Pelosi, whose husband, Paul, is a legit real-estate mogul, was quick to add that slicing her own paycheck wouldn’t "mean as much" as those senators who struggle to make ends meet on $174,000 per year.

Wow....no wonder these assclowns don't know how do a budget...

If you "struggle" to make ends meet on $174,000 a year...you are simply retarded or brain dead...

Even after paying taxes you arre taking home at least $2,000 a week

Definitely should not be a congressman...

First of all; that’s an insult to all two dollar whores. At best she’s a two-bit whore. With a hundred dollars in quarters from Obama and Reid in her pocket. Second; there is NO dignity in Congress. I think Barney Frank sucked the last bit of dignity out of that bunch.

Analogous to "It's not the dress that makes you look fat." there is "It's not the pay cut that made you lose dignity.".
Besides, if I learned anything about this gov't, a "pay cut" is probably pol speak for "not the 30% pay raise" they expected.

Are you kidding, you Botoxed hag? In case you haven’t heard, Congress has an approval rating of 8%, so what “dignity” are you worried about preserving? If my child was a Leftist Democrat serving as a stooge for The First Marxist, I would tell friends my child played piano in a whore house.

Tell you what, Pelosi.

You can retire to Calif, live off your “Capital Gains” (and your Capitol Gains) and I’ll do your job for $74,000, leaving $100,000 to donate toward paying off the debt.

Any Bill delivered to the House less that two weeks before a vote on it will get a NO vote.

Any Bill over 20 pages in length will get a NO vote, except the Budget. That can be 100 pages.

Any Bill for funding EPA, EEOC, OSHA, Department of Education, HHS & HUD must be 20% less than last year’s budget in actual dollars.

All government agency pay scales MUST be matched to the military pay scales in dollar amounts and in percentages of employees at each pay grade. Military combat/hazardous duty pay not included in the comparison.

Seniority in Congress no longer applies. Committees are drawn by lot, Chairmanship rotates equally among members.

No public works projects may be named for a Congressman until that person has been dead at least 50 years.

(rant off utill I can catch my breath)

respect the work we do

The real unemployment rate is what, 17%? We have the most pitiful recovery in history. 60% of the nation did not want and still does not want Obamny Care. We have over 16 trillion in debt.

We should respect the job they are doing? Really?

Why should she worry about her dignity after that horrific plastic surgery she had a few years ago.

She is just as horrific (scary looking) as Hillary has become in the past two years.
