$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.

WATCH: Biden Refers to Horn-Honking Pro-Trump ‘Folks’ As ‘Ugly’ At Minnesota Rally

Ain’t he something!?

Joe Biden is still campaigning, apparently. Still speaking gibberish. Still hating on America. If rally crowd size is any indication, Biden is going to lose big on November 3. Until then, here’s the former vice president referring to pro-Trump protesters as “ugly.” From Fox News: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden jabbed at a group of Trump supporters who honked their horns at a campaign stop in Minnesota, while he attempted to detail his plans to combat the coronavirus pandemic on Friday night. Biden spoke over the noise throughout his speech at the drive-in rally in St. Paul. The former vice president ripped the Trump administration’s handling for the pandemic and appeared to grow irritated when the horn-honking interrupted his explanation for supporting a nationwide mask mandate. “Dr. Fauci called for a mask mandate last week,” Biden said. “This isn’t a political statement like those ugly folks over there beeping the horns. This is a patriotic duty, for God’s sake.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/RNCResearch/status/1322305326188777473?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1322305326188777473%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-biden-refers-to-horn-honking-trump-supporters-as-ugly-folks-while-promoting-bringing-the-country-together WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1313200566550564864?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1313200566550564864%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fwatch-joe-biden-telling-voters-to-think-about-trump-being-given-the-death-blow-while-still-in-hospital%2F REACTIONS:

Kamala Harris: First Thing Joe & I Do Will Be to ‘Work to Get Rid of That Tax Cut’

Is this what the people want, Harris?

Vice President Kamala Harris. Has a pretty awful ring to it, no? If things don’t go America’s way on November 3, it could most certainly become a reality. On the to do list in a Biden administration, you know, other than using the Constitution as a Swiffer pad? How about raising taxes? Sound good to you? From Breitbart: The cuts practically doubled the standard deduction for singles from $6,350 in 2017 to $12,000 in 2018; nearly doubled the standard deduction for married couples from $12,700 to $24,400; and bumped up the child tax credit from $1,000 in 2017 to $2,000 in 2018. At a rally on October 30, Harris blabbered, “I promise you this — as a first order of business, Joe Biden and I are about to work to get rid of that tax cut.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/TrumpWarRoom/status/1322313887107239936?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1322313887107239936%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2020%2F10%2F30%2Fkamala-harris-joe-biden-and-i-are-about-to-work-to-get-rid-of-that-tax-cut%2F Harris hates women, apparently. Her running mate has been accused of sexual harassment, yet she had no problem being on the same ticket. In fact, Kamala said she was “proud” of Jacob Blake despite his all-around violent history (especially with women), huh? What about Blake’s refusal to listen to law enforcement as they gave him orders, Kamala? Weren’t you the top cop of California, at one point? From Breitbart: Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) told Jacob Blake Jr. on Monday that she is “proud of him and how he is working through his pain,” according to attorney Benjamin Crump, who represents the Blake family. […] At the time of the confrontation, there was a warrant for Blake’s arrest for “third-degree sexual assault, trespassing and disorderly conduct,” according to the Associated Press. A knife was found in his car, Wisconsin authorities later revealed. https://twitter.com/AttorneyCrump/status/1303035889715752961?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1303035889715752961%7Ctwgr%5Eshare_3&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2F2020-election%2F2020%2F09%2F07%2Fkamala-harris-told-jacob-blake-she-was-proud-of-him-sexual-assault%2F VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqNefarA828#action=share
