Why isn't this on every news/media show and website in this country? Try and look for it and you will small stories and tidbits from various little heard from or seen outlets, but no one seems to want to make it a big story, and just why not? Simple; to do so might wake people up to reality.
We have our soldeirs out fighting for our government who are now receiving half-pay, while Democrat and Republican elected ass-hats try to grandstand one another. Young people who risk their lives daily are now on half-pay while elected officials in congress who actually work at their elected post maybe a few weeks out of a year, are still getting full pay. $160k plus a year last I checked, and it doesn't matter how much time they are at work.
Well to congress, the president, and every single person, or entity who is involved in this, let me say from my heart; screw you, you lowlife Pieces of excrement. And to everyone who supported endless bailouts, ever-increasing budgets, the healthcare bill, and every other bit of insanity we could not afford; greaty work idiots, now the bills came in and we can't pay them.
These last few months I have bombarded by every media outlet in the country crying about state bills limiting collective bargaining by civil servants, and every time i turn around there is a new teacher on TV throwing a fit over so-called union busting. Yet last I checked they are not at half-pay, nor are there lives at risk 24/7 in a hostile foreign country. After looking into my states SB-5 bill they were attacking, it basically limits the things they can collective bargain for. Things like more than and 80/20 copay split on healthcare. Well F U you crybabies. Most people with even good insurance deal with 70/30 or even less, so excuse me if I am not totally sympathetic. How utterly shameful..
Just as a little bit of a reference, congress got paid $6 a day and only days they worked originally. Today they make $160k plus a year no matter how often they work. And the truly ridiculous part is they make more money outside their government pay. TV appearances, speaking engagements, you name it. This is truly unbeleivable, I have never been ashamed to be American, but this is as close to that point as I ever want to be.
God help us all, these are truly hard times ahead for all of us...
