Just received some interesting info, folks.
The 28th Amendment reads "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that apples to the Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States."
Now for the reality: the US House and Senate voted themselves raises of $4700 and $5300 respectively. But they voted NOT to give you a SS cost of living raise in 2010 and 2011.
Medicare premiums will go up $285.60 for the two years, and you will not get the 3% COLA, which would be $660 per year.
Total two year loss to is $1600 or $3200 for a husband and wife. Yet over the same two years the House and Senate each get $10,000 raises.
They are all exempt from Obamacare and can stay on their Cadillac plans with us paying the bill for them.
And it's obvious the tax codes don't apply to many of the Obama-ites, since so many of them have figured out ways to fraudulently not pay their taxes.
Go you think the cost of drugs, doctors, taxes, food, clothing, fuel, etc., will increase? Absolutely. But that won't affect the Kings and Queens in Washington. They got a better raise and better benefits that should more than cover any increased costs.
Pretty obvious that Nancy, Harry, Chris, Charles, Barack, Ron Kind, et al, don't care about us.
But in 2010 we will have a chance to FIRE THEM! We can get rid of the sitting Congress, meaning 100% of the House, and up to 1/3 of the Senate.
MAKE SURE YOU ARE STILL ANGRY IN NOVEMBER 2010 AND TELL THEIR REPLACEMENTS THAT YOU WILL BE WATCHING THEM. IF THEY DON'T DO THE JOB THEY WERE ELECTED TO DO, THEY TOO CAN BE REPLACED UNTIL WE RESTORE FISCAL SANITY TO WASHINGTON - NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES!
