Pelosi: Congressional pay cut undermines dignity of the job

"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. With lawmakers nowhere near a deal to avert those cuts, federal agencies are bracing for ways to absorb them with minimum damage to programs and personnel."

"dignity of the job that we have rewarded"?

"What does that even mean?"

It either means she's goofy and can't speak her own language correctly or there was no way to put such an idiotic idea into words that make any sense.

I live in CA and even most of the liberals I know can't stand her. Maybe she's using some of that "dignity" over-compensation to buy favors from Diebold at re-election time.

The dignity of the office of Representative would require

Pelosi to give back all the wages she has earned while in office and her constituents should pay penalties for sending her to Washington. She is an embarrassment to representative government.

With all due respect, I will no longer be a voting prostitute for Constitution rejecting harlots.


Do you mean she read this particular bill, even before it was enacted?


Why on earth didn't she just pass it so we could find out what was in it away from the fog of the controversy?

Pelosi: "We Have to Pass the Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It":

Maybe she could supplement her income

by taking a second job selling narcotics to school children, that way she would not only have more money, but a second profession which is at this point generally held in higher esteem than the one she currently holds! So she could close the pay gap and the dignity gap.

What a pathetic excuse for Pelosi

Sadly, I'd wager 90% of Congress agrees with her.


Right, the dignity of the all so important work of F-ing the American people for the benefit of your campaign contributors. Go take another Prozac Nancy.

No Pelosi....

Not acting dignified undermines the dignity of the job.

The dignity of being in congress..... wth is she talking about anyways?

Last I heard congressional approval rating was 13%

On what planet does a 13% job performace rating get you anything other than booted out the door? Add in all the bribery and treason and that dumb bitch should be thankful she has a job at any price.

She's an Asshat!

Perfectly put


American version of "Let them Eat Cake"

We all know how that turned out.

Pelosi... the woman FRAUD

Pelosi... such an ugly parasitic leech.

If it were only for her in her gender, all living men would already be gay and the happiest ever. And very chauvinist, indeed, every single one of them.

Such a heartless selfish woman FRAUD.

Eat that, Nancy, I award you my uttermost contempt.


What the FREAKING HELL were you thinking about, California ?!!!

I really don't get you, sometimes.

Pelosi is definitely a waste

Pelosi is definitely a waste of taxpayers dollars. That joke of a human shouldn't be making more than minimum wage....but neither should any other taxfeeder.

I would afford

You some dignity, blindfold or hood?

Hag: an unpleasant or ugly old woman. She induces a vomit reflex!

She must have been talking to

She must have been talking to the 14% of Americans that currently approve of Congress.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.
