Posted on 07/26/2010 10:58:27 AM PDT by John Semmens
Republican inquiries on whether Elena Kagan is on full pay since relinquishing many of her duties as Solicitor General when President Obama nominated her for the US Supreme Court have been rebuffed by the US Department of Justice.
Attorney General Eric Holder asserted that we will not be held to bean counting standards. The old fashion notion of a so-called fair days pay for a fair days work that the GOP is trying to impose is inappropriate. Ms. Kagan is a loyal member of this Administrations team. Whether she does any work or no work, for that matter, is at our discretion. As is whether she is paid and how much.
Let me remind you: elections have consequences, Holder went on. To the victors belong the spoils. If Republicans ever take back the presidency and they want to reinstitute the kind of wage slavery they seem so fond of it will be their choice. Until then they ought to just be quiet.
