Poooor Congress


How in the world do they make it in life with such meager salaries?

Salary of retired US Presidents .............$450,000 FOR LIFE
Salary of House/Senate members .......... $174,000 FOR LIFE
Salary of Speaker of the House .............$223,500 FOR LIFE
Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders .....$193,400 FOR LIFE

Average salary of a soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN - $38,000
Average income for seniors on SOCIAL SECURITY - $12,000

I think we found where the cuts should be made!

And with all the "recesses" and "breaks", how many days a year are they actually on the job?

For anyone who doesn't know, they decided a few years ago to make their raises automatic each year. We need a national referendum on congressional salaries - that would be a good project for the Occupiers nationwide - collecting those signatures.
