people should DO their own FACT CHECKING
and there lays the problem.. they believe whatever some wacked up person in office tells them… right wing or left….for whatever reason.. someone many people don’t want to know facts..
so if you want to know the truth get on the damned internet and do you own research on the crap that the right and left spouts…or live with those blinders on….
alo….while they are at it… lets take a look at the house it self… get rid of all those taxpayer funded perks they have….
Generous taxpayer-funded pensions for members of Congress have remained the same even through the economic downturn, despite millions of Americans losing their pensions. They are eligible for a pension after 5 years of service, though the amount they receive is determined by years of service. The average pension is around $55,000 a year.
The Office of the Attending Physician is a medical clinic funded primarily with taxpayer funds offering complete primary care and diagnostic services, plus premium specialist care if needed, to members of Congress. Members can pay a low flat yearly fee for unlimited care ($503 in 2009). In 2010, $3.8 million was allocated to run the clinic. While most Americans pay expensive premiums even for mediocre care, Congress has to pay very little to get American-funded premium healthcare.
Congress spends millions of taxpayer money to upgrade to business class on flights.
and there’s more where that came from…..
while they are at it… lets take a look at the house it self… get rid of all those taxpayer funded perks they have….
talk about gov waste….
first-class flights at taxpayer expense
axpayer funding for the Member gym, beauty salon, barber shop, and the House dining room
a loophole that allows Members of Congress to personally collect hundreds of thousands of dollars in agriculture subsidies
taxpayer-funded pensions for Members of Congress who become millionaire lobbyists
glossy, self-promotional mailers sent at taxpayer expense
keep their government health care
Members of Congress have used their spending allowances (set aside for “official and representational expenses”) on luxury items such as high-end car leases for $24,730, flat screen televisions, digital cameras. One Congressman spent $84,000 on personalized calendars to send his constituents.
When a member of Congress dies in office, his or her taxpayer-funded salary ($174,000 or more) is paid in full to the surviving family for the rest of the year. But if an American soldier dies while on active duty (not in combat) the death benefit is $12,420. A death in combat results in a $100,000 death benefit for the family – still over 40% less than a Congressman’s family will get.
yep when Oct.. rolls around there will be an excuse…
I want him to explain how he got millions in that IRA when you can only put in a certain amount a year….
people want things fixed at the snap of a finger and anyone can see… that it doesn’t work like that.. it’s going to take time to fix the country and longer than anyone realizes because there is NO kind of cooperation from the people who have those cushy gov jobs…. and the sad fact is that there will never be any…its all about me me me me me.. not us us us us us together….
you cant tell people FACTS… didn’t you know that….they would rather believe whats been told to them that to use a brain and at least do a fact check….its easier to just go with whatever it said and that not only goes for the right but the left as well..
true but putting your name on a plan that’s nothing but total BS….is what the right has done.. so a bad plan is better than no plan at all.. is that what your saying….
that photo looks like he’s at an hot dog eating contest and he’s all set to start stuffing them down…
who cares about their money… Yeah I want to see those taxes but this isn’t about them being wealthy…
that man was right about her but still when all’s said and done.. he’s an idiot
yep… she’s not the only woman in america that loves her husband to no end…is she suppose to be special or something.. I don’t think so!!!!!
for someone who’s always crying.. like a baby.. he’s the last person to toss out a joke about anyone..
seems as if Romney is like a bad penny.. keeps popping up… and up and up and up even as you keep trying to get rid of it…
