Congress Cuts Spending On Food Stamps, But Boosts Own Pay?
Now, granted, studies have shown that the current level of food stamp support is not being used (see: Everyone Eligible not Using Food Stamps), but combine this story with the one below:
(AP) WASHINGTON -- The Republican-controlled Congress helped itself to a $3,100 pay raise on Friday, then postponed work on bills to curb spending on social programs and cut taxes in favor of a two-week vacation.
So, as we cut social programs (war on pork), we increase your already bloated salary? And for what exactly? You’ve once again put off the bills made to curb spending and cut taxes to go on a two week vacation?
This has to be a joke right?
