The woman who passes bills so we can find out what’s in them and has burdened Americans with trillions in debt opines on her salary for doing so:
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.
“I don’t think we should do it; I think we should respect the work we do,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. “I think it’s necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded.”
Her mangled syntax leaves something unclear: Have lawmakers been rewarded with this job, or are they rewarding the unwashed by selflessly taking on this burden for a paltry $174K? Either way, she’s wrong.
