We shouldn’t forget to give a very special “Thank You” to that marvelous Independent (LOL) friend of the PA taxpayer, Russ Diamond, the front man for the Democrats to take over the legislature in ‘06 by ginning up all that anger over the umpteenth midnight payraise so that his buddies could get control in order to really rip us off. Prior to that we only had the usual day-to-day pilfering by both sides of the aisle like $ 1000/mo car leases, etc.
If I recall, it wasn’t so much the anger over the pay-raise itself but the nefarious way in which they ‘stole’ the increase before they were legally allowed then LIED about it. Us common folk get thrown in jail for that; they get a pass? Not from this voter!
