Recently it was brought up that Congress should take a pay cut, while I grant you it would have no real impact on the Nations financial problems it would have been a 'we feel your pain' solidarity moment.
Nancy Pelosi was against it and said it would lower the dignity of the Congress. This is mind boggling on more than one level, first of all what is she smoking, obliviously they need to drug test her, does she not know the dignity of Congress can't possibly go lower....most people in prison have more honor than she does so voting themselves a pay cut would boost their image immensely and they are in a position to not be needing the money that bad anyway.
More important than that it shows what she really thinks of those of us who have had to take pay cuts for the last few years, she thinks we have no dignity.
I firmly believe people like her will one day get their judgement.
