She couldn’t be any more out of touch if she tried.

[quote]House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that she opposes a cut in congressional pay because it would diminish the dignity of lawmakers’ jobs.

Ok, so all of those typical Americans who took a pay cut - or whose income is proportionally less due to the economy - have jobs with less dignity? Nice. Angry

I think you mean lobbyists. A huge portion of elected officials become lobbyists after they leave office. They know everybody and they know how to work the system. After lobbying they get a cushy job for the company they lobbied for.

I think Pelosi herself has done far more to undermine the dignity of the job than any pay cuts ever could. Dodgy

I think two-faced, lying, deceitful and ignorant people like her are undermining the dignity of not only the post, but being a human being.

Her ideas have been shown to allow only her ( and her cronies ) the advantages of the position... with all the benefits, perks and endless pensions it has turned into a scam of the highest proportion.

I suppose the New Hampshire congress people don't respect what they do only taking $100 per year... But hey if Pelosi needs a pay raise she can always phone up Obama and have Bernanke add an extra shift at the federal reserve to print what she needs anyways.

Wouldn't you need to first have some dignity before you undermine said dignity?
