I was speaking with a buddy of mine yesterday, who is a staunch conservative. He is retired Air Force. He and his wife just got back from a nation wide tour of all the Air Force bases he was stationed at over the years. He said it was a great trip down memory lane.
His only complaint was how expensive everything was and that invariably turned into a rant about how it’s Washington’s fault and then degraded into a tirade.
Practically yelling, he exclaimed, “Do you know how much money those bums in Congress make?”
I laughed and said, “Funny you should mention it, for I was planning to write about just that thing”. So I guess now is as good a time as ever.
Thinking about it led me to recall a Democrat Congressman, just this past April, whining that they don’t make enough money. As you too may recall, it was Virginia Democrat Jim Moran, who is retiring this year.
