[Hey! Don’t forget: second quarterly estimated tax due today.]
Justice Kavanaugh Wants Us To Know He’s Won (thanks, Glenn — you’ve ruined my day).
> Members DO pay into Social Security, just like everybody else.
> Members and their staff ARE subject to ObamaCare. Their only way out: coverage through a spouse or parent, or buying coverage on their own, without federal subsidy . . . like anyone else.
> Members do NOT receive a big pension after one term. (E.g.: After 16 years, former Congressman Steve Israel gets $40,000/year. Not nothing — but hardly the $174,000-after-just-one-term frequently alleged.)
> And no — #4 and #5 — they DON’T get free DC housing (unless sleeping on their office couch) and have NOT given themselves raises in the last ten years.
That said, I sure would like your help sweeping out of office those representatives — and senators — who see their role as attempting to block any progress under a Democrat, as with Obama; and defending the indefensible, as with Trump.
We should daily demand that Senate Republicans at least take up — and ideally pass — the 10 bills Democrats in the House have passed this year to make normal Americans’ lives better.

Children nowadays are tyrants. They contradict their parents, gobble their food and tyrannize their teachers.~Socrates
