We could raise the salary of congress members as much as it takes to get them to raise taxes on the top 10% of income earners.

As it is, the US Treasury is under funded compared to what it could be.

Taxes could pay for Socialism such as Healthcare and Education for starters, Every Highway could use extra Lanes without Tolls.

I've got a better idea Howard, why don't we lower the salary of congress? Lower it to the point where they have to have to hold two jobs and the wife needs to work just to make ends meet at the end of each week. Lower that pay check to the point where even a parking ticket is a major problem to confront; 'do we eat this week or risk a bench warrent?'.

Then make them pay for their own families heath insurance policies. Make them pay for their own transportation. Make them pay for not showing up for work by deducting from their pay those hours or days missed, doesn't matter the peons excuse.

Ya see Howard, those peons are suppose to be the peoples lobby in Washington and they ain't doing their job, so to hell with paying them any bonuses. I want them to see how it is to starve for a change.

Republicans Admit to Accepting Bribes, Why Aren't They In Jail?


The whole Roy Moore thing in a way really highlights in my mind how committed the Republicans are to sucking up to the very, very wealthy base. I've been referring to them for a long time as the owners of the Republican Party, but they're also the ones that keep the Republican Party in power. They're also the supporters of the Republican Party.
