    ^It’s also interesting how many didn’t go into Congress with millionaire status!! Then they leave, become lobbyists, or board members in the MIC, and double up!! (AND without serving 30 years in “government service”, they get full pensions!)


    BTW, Congress, House and Senate, have a long history of freezing federal salaries, GS and WG, while granting themselves raises!! (and it’s typically been the Republican “budget cutters”!!)


    BTW, in “shut downs” they’ve also had to go back and retroactively restore those salaries and benefits, costing taxpayers even MORE! AND, as a TAXPAYER, as well as federal employee, I spent a lot of time trying to keep costs down and do things as cheaply as possible. Over 32 years it was CONSISTENTLY the REPUBLICAN appointees or promoted culls that kept running spending up, because, “the only way to get more is to spend more, even if you DON’T need it!” That’s especially true in defense spending. (brother was in “defense” for contractors, and NEVER ONCE tried to cut costs, because it was his BONUS at stake if he DID!)

    At this point I’m not sure anything short of evolution of the species will stop it!

    Don’t equate evolution with progress (whatever progress may mean). Evolution is just what happens when conditions change and organisms arise from pre-existing stock that can handle the new conditions…until conditions change again, and new varieties arise that can handle the new conditions better and…you get the picture?

    Looked up Schneiders, the book/catalog held by Boehner. It’s a wine and spirits merchant, cellar.com, Schneider’s of Capitol Hill.

    They not only get paid, they also get rewarded with up to millions of bribes campaign contributions, all of which can be converted to their own personal funds as long as they are declared as income… and no Congrassman would ever fail to report all his income.

    They also, of course, get to do insider trading, along with their families. But I’m sure none of them have taken advantage by betting on the market to go down as a result of a government shutdown.
