$174,000 a year (plus perks-galore) is pretty awesome as it is, but it’s not good enough.

Even though most members of Congress are well-off financially before taking office, House Democrats are now proposing a pay increase.

Here’s the scoop…

House spending leaders want to break a decadelong pay freeze and give members of Congress a cost-of-living bump that could pad their salaries with an extra $4,500 next year.

Congressional salaries have been frozen at about $174,000 since 2009, when Democrats controlled Congress and decided to suspend automatic cost-of-living increases while heading into the 2010 election year.

Freshman Democrat Rep. Katie Porter. Heard of her?

She recently admitted that getting elected to Congress really, really, really helped erase her medical bills.

Must be nice, huh?

From Free Beacon:

Congresswoman Katie Porter (D, Calif.,) revealed in a subcommittee meeting that a tangled mess of health care bills she was facing was cleared up when a patient advocate told the insurance company Porter had been recently elected to the House of Representatives.

In a Tuesday hearing titled “Protecting Patients from Surprise Medical Bills,” the freshman representative told her personal story of needing an emergency appendectomy last August. She said she was shocked to get a bill for $3,000 because one of the surgeons was out of her provider network.

Porter noted, “As I continued to fight my insurance company, I kept receiving bills from the surgeon. Eventually, nearly five months after I was hospitalized, the surgeon was forced to simply request payment.

She said, “Finally, the patient advocate, invoking the fact that I had just been elected to Congress, was able to get the insurance company to agree to pay my surgeon’s bill.

Have you heard those stories of radical lefties assaulting conservatives overseas with milkshakes?

Well, it’s now happening in the states.

Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) can attest.

WATCH:

President Trump says what’s on his mind 24/7.

He does not have a filter and that’s what so many millions of Americans love about him.

While speaking before reporters at the White House on Thursday, POTUS let the nation know that Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is a “mess” and that Congress can’t get anything done because of obstructionist Democrats.

Trump noted, “She’s a mess, let’s face it. It’s a do nothing congress. She’s lost it.

Pro-Trump Georgia Democrat Says Kamala Harris Is ‘The Wrong Person’ To Win The Black Vote

Published

on

Georgia Democratic state Rep. Vernon Jones, who is bold and brave enough to have tossed his support behind President Donald Trump, stated that Democrats thought Sen. Kamala Harris, who has been announced as Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate, would “help them save the Black vote, but that was the wrong person for that job to do that.” Jones made these controversial statements on the Wednesday morning edition of “Fox & Friends,” just one day after Biden made the announcement concerning Harris. One of the interesting facts about Harris the left hasn’t addressed yet is her deep background with law enforcement. Here is more from Fox News: “This was a good day for President Trump” Jones said. He then pointed out that “Trump has a better record on helping black men and women than Kamala Harris has, than Joe Biden has and as this story gets told more and more African-Americans are coming his way and that is what they’re afraid of.” “She flip-flops,” Jones added on Wednesday. He also accused her of saying “anything she can to get elected.” “Joe Biden has the right string, but the wrong yo-yo,” he went on to say, pointing out that Harris is “liberal.” “She accused Biden of being biased when it came to busing,” Jones added. He’s absolutely spot on about her flip-flopping on the issues. Whatever the popular take on a leftist agenda item happens to be at the moment, that’s the stance she’s going to take. Period. She’s an opportunist to the core. There are no principles, not even leftist ones, to which she seems beholden to, and that’s dangerous. Someone like that is easy to control, to manipulate. To use as a mouthpiece for agenda items passed down from those in power in the Democratic Party. And make no…

Biden’s VP Pick Kamala Harris Actively Promoted Group That Provided Bail For Alleged Violent Criminals

Published

on

Sen. Kamala Harris, who has been tapped to be Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate on Tuesday, supported and promoted an organization that helped to provide bail money for violent criminals who were arrested during the riots that exploded after the death of George Floyd. That same group has now gone on to put up bail for an alleged murderer and a previously convicted rapist. A report from FOX 9 on Monday revealed that the group, Minnesota Freedom Fund, has in recent weeks bailed out people like Darnika Floyd, who was charged with second-degree murder after allegedly killing a friend by stabbing them to death. They also provided bail support for Christopher Boswell, who is currently facing charges of sexual assault and kidnapping. The MFF helped put up $100,000 for Floyd and $350,000 for Boswell. Check out the details from Fox News: MFF received about $35 million in the wake of Floyd’s death — which came after a Minneapolis Police Department officer knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes — with at least some of it coming from a number of Biden staffers who donated to the group and then tweeted about it. And Harris, D-Calif., a former prosecutor who served as the attorney general of California for six years, promoted the fund herself in a June 1 tweet, telling her followers that the group would be able to help protesters swept up in clashes with police as unrest gripped Minneapolis. https://twitter.com/KamalaHarris/status/1267555018128965643 But MFF, which received so much money amid the unrest that it asked people to start donating to other groups instead, didn’t just bail out protesters who may have been victims of overzealous policing. FOX 9 also reported that Jaleel Stallings, who is accused of shooting at police during the May riots, was bailed out by MFF…
