The Passing of Peter Jennings
Keep up the great work!

Usually, I don’t agree with you on a lot of things … but your bit on Congressional pay today made a big point. DC IS very expensive and you can barely buy a house on a $130K income much less support two houses. I don’t see a problem with a state maintaining a residence for a senator/rep in D.C. ... heck, even a nice apartment. With the way housing values are rising, it might even be a good investment.
I wonder how one would go about raising the issue with a state legislature to get it done …

This could have been your best article ever. Well said! I’m sending it to my Congressman.

I completely agree. Our representatives should be paid a whole lot more. However, that will require a huge effort to educate Joe Lunchbucket. He perceives anyone making $158,000 per yr (4+ times his $38,000) as already rich. If you can sell that one to the American people, you’ll have lots of support from Congress, the Senate and me.

Apparently, Denny, you are not aware that we are now living in a fascist country, not a democracy, and if the U.S. Congress wants more money, they will vote for it. You could react at the next election, assuming the votes will be counted honestly. They won’t. When Congress votes for an energy bill that includes $8.5 billion in government handouts to energy companies who are already making record profits, and when they include a $1 billion handout for an energy consortium in Tom DeLay’s district, it should be pretty clear who they are working for. They are not working for the good of the American people, only for the good of the corporate elite. That’s what happens when big business runs government.
