Skip to comments.House approves bill slashing Pete Buttigieg's salary to $1
Posted on 11/08/2023 1:21:32 AM PST by Libloather
The House approved a measure late Tuesday that would slash Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg's taxpayer-funded government salary to just $1.
The bill - which was introduced by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga. - was passed via voice vote Tuesday as an amendment to the 2024 Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act, the standalone funding bill for the General Services Administration, Securities and Exchange Commission and other related agencies.
"I’m proud to announce my amendment to FIRE Pete Buttigieg just PASSED the House. Pothole Pete staged fake bike rides to the White House and used private planes funded by taxpayers to receive awards for the way certain people have sex," Greene said in a social media post Tuesday. "American taxpayers should not be on the hook for paying for his lavish trips or his salary."
"Pete Buttigieg doesn’t do his job. It’s all about fake photo ops and taxpayer-funded private jet trip to accept LGBTQ awards for him," Greene added. "I’m happy my amendment passed, but he doesn’t deserve a single penny."
Since taking office in 2021, Buttigieg has faced criticism for Republican lawmakers in response to several crises that have faced the Department of Transportation.
For example, in February, after a train carrying vinyl chloride, a dangerous colorless gas, derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, Buttigieg was criticized for his apparent inaction and for waiting several weeks before traveling to the site of the derailment.
In addition, there have been multiple instances of mass commercial airline cancelations during his tenure for various reasons including a pilot shortage. Republicans and Democrats alike had called for Buttigieg to take decisive action to ensure air travelers are protected from such cancelations.

Wait, this is real? Buttegg now makes $1. Can she do the same to Merrick Garland ??
How about Mayorkas?
Mentally ill gay and lesbian agenda destroying America like it destroyed Rome
It’s 99 cents too high!!!
> Wait, this is real? Buttegg now makes $1. <
Unfortunately, no. It’s all for show. The House bill will go over to the Senate. Greene’s measure will certainly be dropped there. I don’t think the House will object.
Nevertheless, I applaud Greene’s actions. It’s about time a Republican played the save level of hardball that the Democrats play every day.
Sorry, typo in my post #7 to you. The last sentence should read:
It’s about time a Republican played the same level of hardball that the Democrats play every day.
would love to see more of this
and no retirement packages for feds
Well. Now it goes to the senate.
The Onion? Babylon Bee??
I can see several possible reductions in pay here. In fact there are some who already owe pay backs to the government. They are mostly recognizable by the “D” behind their name.
“Wait, is this real?”
No. The Senate would defeat this Bill and if they didn’t Biden wouldn’t sign it.
What will happen instead is that Buttigig will get a $100,000 bonus when the House passes, with 20 GOP votes, the Justice for Glee Fans Act, as part of Our Democracy’s escalating fight against homophobia, which will pass the Senate 99-1 and be signed by Biden on Matthew Shepard’s birthday.
It’s ok,,,He should be able to moonlight
giving trans things lessons on how to lactate.
God made man and women distinctively different yet uniquely compatible and complementary, and only joined them together in marriage - as the Lord Jesus Himself specified (Mt. 19:4–6) - and Scripture only condemns homosexual relations wherever they are manifestly dealt with.
And homosexual relations have been tragically primarily responsible for approx. 80% of new HIV cases among men and over 700,000 American deaths, though such is not even the decisive reason why homosexual relations are wrong.
Yet there is still room at the cross for all who will come to God in repentance and faith, and trust in the Divine Son of God sent by the Father, the risen Lord Jesus, to save them on His account, by His sinless shed blood, and thus be baptized and live for Him. Acts 10:36-47
Watch where this goes. he will be paid.
A pointless gesture and as much of a waste of time as declaring November 8 to be National Linseed Oil Day.
He is so deserving of this reduction!
