“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.”
Nancy Pelosi on the House’s decision to not take the pay hike-
Pelosi seems to think that the pay cut for congress is beneath their dignity. Oh really Ms Pelosi? What is it you do that warrants so much money? Voting to cut the pay of all of us out here?
You seem to forget, that you work for us. If we decide that you deserve a paycut, then we have that right to do that. Just because you have had your fat nose in the “trough” for so many years now that you can’t fathom how to make money the honest way……doesn’t mean a hill of beans to us. If I made even a quarter of what you make, I would be rich. So stop your bellyaching! Here is what happened……from Fox News….
The House voted Friday to extend a pay freeze for federal workers, already in effect for more than two years, for another nine months.
Republicans, who largely backed the measure, said it would save $11 billion in the long run and that economically secure public servants could go a little longer without a raise.
Most Democrats, and the White House, criticized the bill as an example of anti-government bias and said Republicans, instead of debating a bill that has little chance of advancing in the Democratic-controlled Senate, should be concentrating on avoiding the pending automatic cuts to federal programs that could have a painful effect on the economy.

When the United States was formed, Ms. Pelosi, the orignal Congressmen worked another job. They had to get to Washington when the session began, with their own money, and then when the session was over, they went back home to their jobs. You don’t know what it means to work.
Another thing I want to say to you Pelosi, is what is the work you do? Tear down Republicans for disagreeing with you? Hate Americans when they don’t agree with you? Tell me. What is it you do for all that money we pay you. And yes, I said we, because without us, the tax payers….the government has no money…..and neither would you.
We are all suffering now because of the policies of Obama and you on the left. I think it is time that you did some of that suffering too…though the pay freeze that is in effect, with your salaries, isn’t what I call suffering. You are already making too much.
