Are You Getting A Raise

What do you think your chances are of getting a raise if you were viewed as only 10% effective? If you are like me, you will agree that remaining employed would be a bonus. The idea of a raise is unheard of in those circumstances.

Or is it? There is one entity which is going to receive an extra $5000 per person annually starting Jan 1st. Can you guess who it is? Of course, it is our wonderful United States Congress; the organization which made George Bush's approval ratings look stellar. I find it amazing that 88%-90% of the American people think Congress is doing an awful job yet Congress, itself, feels entitled to a raise. You have got to be kidding me. They all should be hung just on this basis alone.

Remember this little known fact when you hear one of these talking blowholes mention how that everyone needs to sacrifice. How about them? Here is my idea: for the next 4 years, we reduce the annual pay of each member of Congress to $42,000. That savings of $100,000 per person can go directly into the Treasury to help offset the massive spending the government is doing. After all, everyone needs to sacrifice. It is time for Congress to follow suit.
