Pelosi: Congressional Pay Cut
Undermines Dignity of the Job

The Hill, by Mike Lillis

Original Article

Posted By:PaleAle, 2/14/2013 7:36:35 PM

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that she opposes a cut in congressional pay because it would diminish the dignity of lawmakers´ jobs. "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." The comments were made in the context of the looming sequester, which would force across-the-board cuts affecting most federal offices, including Congress.

Comments:
The resulting "cut in dignity" would thus catapult the Congress into the Negative Dignity column. There is no telling what that may do to their self esteem, or the trouble they may cause with a negative dignity quotient.

If their pay reflected their dignity most congresscritters would owe us money.

Why should the congress be paid for all the dignity while the rest of us have gone through severe pay cuts as a result of the actions of this government? Earn your dignity by making a better life for the Citizens.

Seems she should set an example and accept NO pay. She can well afford it, and would not be a hypocrit about "the wealthy paying their fair share" then.

To put it in terms Nancy would understand, we have to first cut congressional pay to find out if it undermines their dignity.

She is paid by the taxpayers. In most places (except some union jobs), if you don´t do your job you lose it. She isn´t doing her job and neither are the rest of them. The talk of a congressional pay cut meant they would get paid when the work was done so they wouldn´t lose a penny. For the common people, if you don´t do your work and don´t get paid you don´t collect it later. You have lost it for good. These people make me sick.

she and her husband are reportedly worth millions, maybe even billions. With this one statement she seriously blew ANY dignity she might have ever had which is doubtful to begin with. She wears designer suits, expensive jewelery ( all those pearls are NOT COSTUME JEWELERY!) She and hubby have homes on both coasts and probably in D.C., too. Oh, and let´s not forget the Botox and plastic surgery that is so obvious.

She´s talking about a pay cut and dignity?!? Sheesh . . . why not talk about a BUDGET?!?

THIS is what Speaker Boehner should be out there responding to!!!!! "It´s unfortunate that the Democrats do not think we should be setting the example and give ourselves a pay cut. After all, Ms. Pelosi joins many of us here on the Hill who would never miss it as we are well off. When the American people see their elected leaders walking the walk instead of just talking the talk, perhaps Congress´ approval ratings would rise from the ash heap!"

The federal agency that backed down over the weekend in a tense standoff with a Nevada rancher is being accused of leaving a trail of wreckage behind. Fox News toured the damage -- allegedly caused by the Bureau of Land Management -- which included holes in water tanks and destroyed water lines and fences. According to family friends, the bureau´s hired "cowboys" also killed two prize bulls. "They had total control of this land for one week, and look at the destruction they did in one week," said Corey Houston, friend of rancher Cliven Bundy and his family.

A leading human rights group has called on Dunkin´ Donuts to withdraw a "bizarre and racist" advertisement for chocolate doughnuts in Thailand that shows a smiling woman with bright pink lips in blackface makeup. The Dunkin´ Donuts franchise in Thailand launched a campaign earlier this month for its new "Charcoal Donut" featuring the image, which is reminiscent of 19th and early 20th century American stereotypes for black people that are now considered offensive symbols of a racist era.

Nearly a year before signing the nation´s most stringent gun control measure into law, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo launched a hotline that allows state residents to report illegal gun owners in exchange for a $500 reward. New Yorkers can call the "Gun Tip Line" if they believe someone they know has an illegal gun. “This initiative seeks to turn neighbor against neighbor and use their own tax dollars to pay for the $500 reward,” Republican Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin told the station.

As the federal budget goes off the rails, Joe Biden´s getting back on -- with Amtrak. The looming sequester is forcing the veep to once again take the train -- as opposed to military aircraft -- to his weekend trips home to Delaware. Biden said Wednesday he initiated the change, calling it the one thing about the sequester that´s working to his "benefit." Speaking at the National Association of Attorneys General, Biden said that while he took nearly 8,000 train trips as senator, the Secret Service made him travel by air because the Amtrak "gives too many opportunities for people

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
