ROLL CALL: Despite what constituents outside of Washington might think, members of Congress are underpaid, a House Legislative Branch appropriator suggested Thursday. Virginia Democrat James P. Moran said he plans to highlight the injustice by introducing an amendment to Budget Chairman Paul D. Ryan’s spending blueprint next week. Moran made the comments while the bill that funds member’s $174,000 salaries was being marked up.

“I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid,” Moran told CQ Roll Call. “I understand that it’s widely felt that they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world.”

Yeah, well kiss my ass Moron...I mean Moran.  If you worked in the private sector, you would have been fired long ago.  Since the pay is so low - why don't you all just LEAVE!

Dear Democrats,

You're absolutely right.  Please make this your platform issue to run on this fall.   :whistle:
