Out of touch: Nancy Pelosi says pay cut for Congress is beneath the ‘dignity of the job’

That’s right! Democrats don’t care if you have to take a pay cut because of their ultra-progressive taxation. But when it comes to them taking a cut, it’s out of the question.

What is this ‘dignity’ she speaks of?

We wonder how the millions of Americans who are unemployed or under-employed feel about Pelosi’s position.

Rather than making out of touch remarks like these, maybe Pelosi should ask fellow Democrat Harry Reid to get his legislative body to pass a budget, like regular Americans.

    “Congressional pay cut would undermine our dignity.” Then .@NancyPelosi , GET THE F*CK OUT!

  • waltermitty2012

    All I can say is with Pelosi there’s no there there.

  • Love of Country

    A necessary pay cut is beneath your dignity? And being a hateful, anti-American, pathological liar isn’t? Nancy Pelosi ….. you have no dignity!

  • Maxx

    How can someone whose needle-injected face looks like she’s constantly viewing a meteorite fly by, be concerned about “dignity?”

  • johnnycab23513

    Congress lost its lat shred of dignity in 2006.

  • Joseph Phillips

    Passing a bill to find out what’s in the bill is beneath the dignity of the job.

  • CR

    Congressional pay should be tied to unemployment rate. Each year, cut the pay by whatever percent the unemployment rate is at. 10 percent unemployment, 10 percent pay cut. Simple formula. See if the liberals want to raise the minimum wage and impose job-killing Obamacare then.

  • TocksNedlog

    Never have the words “rich bitch” been more appropriate.

  • Michelle

    The degree of my dignity is defined by how I conduct myself professionally and personally. My dignity is directly related to, and only related to, the way I conduct myself, my actions and my words. It is NOT defined by or even remotely related to the numbers on my paycheck. I so seriously dislike that this woman represents my state in Congress.

    • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

      Unfortunately, we have all the politically insane, ie, Boxer, Feinstein and Pelosi, the trifecta.

      • Michelle

        Thankfully, the House Rep. for the district in which I live (northern LA County) is a Republican.

  • independentjones

    Oh dear, Nanzi, YOU are beneath the dignity of the job!

  • David Johnson

    They need to be payed at military pay scales, offer them barrack’s to live in (no housing allowance), & chow hall with the same food (a few of the bases I was on had decent chow halls) served to military personnel. Oh and lets get rid of there retirement plans!!!

    • Gallatin

      Amen, their should be no retirement plans for elected officials.

  • CatHerder

    Wait…Congresscritters have dignity? Knock me over with a feather!

  • disqus_e2F2oUH6C7

    CR, that is a Great Solution.

    Pelosi is a Vampire who has been sucking the blood out this country for too long. She needs to flap those leathery Bat Wings of hers; and fly back to her California Bat Cave and suck the blood out of some of her “Undocumented Aliens.” There is a rumor that California will soon declare an open season for hunters; on Ugly Old Vampire Bats.

    • Rabid

      There already is, but it’s extremely difficult to aim a weapon with a mirror.

      • affenhauer

        Especially when the target can’t *be seen* in a mirror…

  • Tugger – not quite dead yet

    Congress has worked really hard to earn that pay cut.

  • Michelle

    Dear Nancy: You whine about a salary and your dignity? Are you aware that when Mitt Romney ran the Olympic committee he donated his salary to charity? Are you also aware that while he was Gov. of MA he declined a salary the entire four years? Are you also aware that he promised to not draw a salary if elected President? And I definitely believe the promise considering he already did that as Gov of MA. You spoiled rotten bitch – your net worth is $26M and you fret a pay cut in the range of $10,000+ would undermine your dignity? FFS, your comment about it alone is what undermines your dignity. Want some dignity? Try refusing your salary or donating it to charity.

    • ERMERGERD

      I think I’ll share this. :)

  • PJemmott

    She has no dignity

  • PJemmott

    Maybe we should send her a bill for all the alcohol she charged to the taxpayers on her flights back and forth home also on the taxpayers dime.I have to admit though she fits perfect with the crooked administration in power right now

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    These congressional jobs were not suppose to be careers, they were a way to give back and serve the people. Now, it’s a get-rich-quick scheme with insider trading and crony kick-backs. How was Harry Reid able to amass millions during his tenure? Term. Limits.
    P.S. Pelosi’s a nut-bar.

    Ms Pelosi: As reps of the people U should share in conditions U help
    create & not just blindly get a raise! Think about our dignity 4
    once!

    The condition we are in as a nation is never the government’s fault, and politicians always think they are doing a fantastic job—someone voted for them after all. In piglosi’s mind she won reelection and to win reelection she blamed everyone but government for this country’s ills. In her little mind she deserves a raise and no one can tell her different.

    saying again: if (god forbid) dems regain house ’14, i hope boehner gives back the gavel by ramming it up pelosi’s ass!

  • Steve_J

    I’m surprised Pelosi can even pronounce the word “dignity”.

    • Peyton

      She nearly choked on it. Heard they had to call 911 to resuscitate her.

  • Terry Edgar

    THIS ARM FLAPPING, CRAZY-EYED, BABBLING, SENILE, BOTOX FACE CRIMINAL, OLD HAG IS TALKING OUT OF HER A$$ BECAUSE THE BOTOX HAS DRAWN HER A$$ UP TO THE FACE AREA. SHE KNEW EVERYTHING ABOUT THE ILLEGAL, RACIST, COMMUNIST, MARXIST, RADICAL MUSLIM TERRORIST, DICTATOR, TYRANT RULING AMERICA WHEN SHE TOOK THE “PAYOFF” FROM SOROS TO SEAT THIS TERRORIST IN THE WHITE HOUSE (SHE HAS ALSO AIDED AND ABETTED THE FRAUD VOTES, TWICE NOW) AND THAT IS TREASON, CRIMES AGAINST AMERICA. SHE IS THE “MAIN” REASON THAT AMERICA IS BEING RULED BY A NARCISSISTIC, PSYCHO-PATHIC, RADICAL MUSLIM TERRORIST BECAUSE SHE IS A GREEDY CRIMINAL FROM HELL. SHE NEEDS TO BE COMMITTED TO A HOME FOR THE AGED SENILE, CRAZY, INSANE FOR THE REST OF HER LIFE WITH A PERMANENT GUARD SO THAT SHE WILL NEVER BE OUT IN THE PUBLIC EVER AGAIN, CHAINED TO THE BED OR ARRESTED AND SENT TO GITMO AS A TERRORIST AND FACE THE FIRING SQUAD ALONG WITH HER PROTEGE, THE TERRORIST RULING AMERICA. ALL OF CONGRESS NEEDS TO GO WITH THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE AIDING AND ABETTING THEM INSTEAD OF BRINGING CHARGES AGAINST THEM FOR THEIR CRIMES. CONGRESS IS A GROUP OF GUTLESS, SPINELESS THIEVING CRIMINALS STEALING FROM THE TAXPAYERS AND NOT DOING THEIR JOBS. THAT IS WHY THEY WON’T BRING CRIMINALS CHARGES AGAINST ANYONE ELSE, THEY ARE FEDERAL CRIMINALS, ALSO. THE DAMN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO BE ABOLISED AND LET THE STATES TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES WITH “WE THE PEOPLE” MAKING THEM ACCOUNTABLE CONSTANTLY. IT WOULD SAVE $TRILLIONS A YEAR. AMERICANS COULD KEEP MOST OF THEIR MONEY INSTEAD OF THE CRIMINALS IN D.C. STEALING IT FOR THEIR DRUGS, ALCOHOL, PORN AND ILLEGAL, CRIMINAL LAVISH LIFE STYLES. THEY ARE ALL SEWER LINE QUALITY OF LIFE AND CERTAINLY NOT WORTHY OF ANYTHING “GOOD” AND EVEN THEY KNOW IT, THAT’S WHY THEY ARE SO SLIMY AND VILE, JUST LIVING UP TO THEIR OWN STANDARDS BUT “PRETENDING TO BE OF THE ELITE AND HOPING AMERICANS DOESN’T NOTICE. FLUSH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SEWER LINES IN D.C., ASAP AND GET RID OF THE BACKED UP STAGNANT SEWAGE, ASAP, ESPECIALLY THE “CIRCUS RING LEADER, NANCY PELOSI. GOD BLESS AMERICA.

  • PegLeg1069

    The dignity of Nancy Pelosi’s job and the job of every elected official should be based on the fact that the electorate thought enough of them and trusted them to do what’s best for the country and for the people who put them there. The salary is irrelevant to dignity.

    I don’t believe that the founding fathers meant for elected office to be a career. It’s supposed to a period that these people step away from their private life to serve the public and then return to their private life. These “public servants” have more of a sense of entitlement than the clowns that put them there! WE NEED TERM LIMITS!!

    • Infinite_Indeterminism

      No.

      We need citizens that actually perform their duties: To vet all candidates, to vote for the least bad, and to keep a very active eye on them during their terms of service!

      Term limits are a red herring, shaped (by design or accident) to fit the purpose of agitators saying that the term limits will absolve the citizens of the duties mentioned above.

      The HELL they will!!!

    • LilliaNinTX

      We need term limits, these people living high on the hog in Washington, #termlimits

  • Guest

    dignity no longer exists in congress

    • Infinite_Indeterminism

      While I sympathize with your expression, I must correct you on it.

      The dignity of Congress resides in its purpose, and in those precious few, members or not, who still remember and honor that purpose.

    EVERY SO OFTEN, YOU IMAGINE, FOR SOME REASON ‘THEY’ SEND OFF FOR TWO ORDERLY’S, DESTINATION: THE VIOLENT WARD AT SOME SECURED LOCALE ON THE GROUNDS OF THE WHITE HOUSE. A PRIVATE ‘SANITORIUM FOR THE BEWILDERED’,to scoop up Mrs. Pelosi. And then wheel her into hair and make-up, feed her a magic beverage concoction of some sort, probably with the main ingredient being 100 Proof Moonshine. Just to calm her and amp her up to a verbal level, wardrobe her in a cheery pant-suit which she won’t be able to throw up over her head should the liquor wear off, schmear on a little lipstick, add some chunky beads, their matching earrings and roll her out in front of the camera’s: Nancy Desmond and yet another ‘close-up’. What comes out of her mouth always elicits pretty much the same reaction from the listener: “Wha..what did she just say?” And sometimes the message is so shattering, so phantasmagorical, you really begin to wonder. ‘Are they propping this woman up as a ‘thing of some sort’ to coax us away from what is going on just outside of peripheral vision? As we find ourselves leaning in to her, even to the point of ‘lip reading her’ to proove to ourselves, ‘yes, that did come out of her mouth’ as meanwhile, in the distance the Earth, all about us, is opening and swallowing cherry tree’s, draining the reflection pool at the Washington Monument, finally even claiming the monument itself, along with cabs, busses, people and finally Washington, D.C. itslef, including all of its landmarks and monuments asflying raptors swoop and scoop up attractive pages for ‘love slaves’ (aren’t they anyway?) and finally in all its repugnance, the fetid, putrifying ‘Swamp’ that bears Pelosi’s as it bursts into flames, igniting the sky.
    Because she makes absolutely no sense and she doesn’t make it easy, gesticulating, flailing her arms, ticking, blinking and lip-smacking which iin itself is so distracting you nearly miss statements such as those below from Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace:

    “…White House Press Secretary Jay Carney countered House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi after she claimed it’s a “false argument” to say the federal government has a spending problem…” This bizarre statement even sent Jay Corney in to throw water on Mrs. Pelosi’s flame engulfed pantsuit with: “Of course, the president believes that we have a spending problem,” Carney said Monday, adding that the problem is “specifically driven” by health care spending. “And that’s just a fact.”

    The gentle reminder of the nation’s bloated entitlement spending came after Pelosi, in an interview with “Fox News Sunday,” challenged those calling for more cuts.

    “We have to recognize that, which cuts really help us and which cuts hurt our future? And cuts in education, scientific research and the rest are harmful, and they are what are affected by the sequestration,” she said on “Fox News Sunday.” “So, it is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. We have a budget deficit problem that we have to address.” (Unquote)–Source/FoxNews/2.11.13/excerpted

    Attending matron (dialing): “Yes, is this the Ward Nurse? Mrs. Pelosi’s interview has concluded and the medication is wearing off. Can you send two, stat? Yes, the bigger, the better and with restraints.

    If we are paying Congress based on dignity, then they should hang their heads in shame and pay back all the money they have made the past 5 years, plus interest, payable to the people of the UNITED STATES.
