Most of them are making big money on the side. Only a very small handful actually get by on what they’re paid for the job.

The last I knew, my congressman was still sleeping in his office. However he also believes that congressmen should spend most of their time in their home districts and states.

Glad we have a man of common sense ringing the bell on this issue. When I listed to Moran’s interview it was painfully obvious that he was reaching for a means to justify his increase in salary with all the uhs and ums thrown into the mix. It sounds like he wants more money for the same reason the self-entitled welfare recipients want more... Just because you got mo’ money to gimme. The jetset lifestyle and hard partying do requires lots of money you know...

Only Morans think Congresscritters are only in it for the paychecks. They love the power over others, and the legal graft that comes their way because of it.

I find Gowdy really good, especially given that he is a former prosecutor.

Congressmen would say that is the reason they take bribes and payoffs and they are corrupt is because they are “underpaid”...*ROFL*

1) Let them live on the downsized US Military Bases, with bus transportation to and from Crapitol Hill.

OR

2) Re-open St Elizabeth's Hospital (asylum & mental hospital) in Anacostia (DC), for the Congresscritters, for a "congressional dormitory".

But he is a politician and he did give a shout-out to his wife, a teacher, and to our Sheriff Wright.

Slimy Jim Moron verbally attacked an 8 year old black kid.
Moron Junior physically attacked his girlfriend right after James O'Keefe duped him into described his vote fraud racket on tape.

The rotten apple doesn't fall far from the rotten tree.
This is the kind of trash making laws for the USofA, and then the crook whines he isn't paid enough.
He's chosen to cut & run from Congress. Good riddance. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Just to be clear: Gowdy's the reason you will never support Haley?

I just don't understand the connection. There are several reasons I will not donate to Haley in the future, but...Gowdy? Help me see your thinking on this.

Methinks Moran has been watching Barry and Moochie living beyond Royalty and has caught a case of the green-eyed monster.

in the real world given the job that congress has done on the people of this country, they deserve to be fired, stripped of their perk package and made to give back what we've paid them. Leave it up to democrat though to be the sniveling whiner.

I Do, too. But he ain’t never gonna be a movie star, so the Progs will jump on that. Like they did with Henry Waxman.

AS Long as they protect the border and put them at the END of the line (no benefits). Most are Asian anyway and good workers.

She had the chance to appoint Gowdy to the Senate but took the politically correct path. I don’t dislike Scott at all; he’s a true Conservative. But who’d you like backing YOU in a fight—him or Gowdy?

Thanks; gotcha. Personally, I think Trey is doing fine right where he is and was not wanting her to appoint him. Scott is very fine so far and we're doing what we can to minimize Lindsey's chances.

Now here's a thought I've never expressed before now: I would vote for and support Halley if she ran hard against Lindsey, but she's not going to.

Two months until the S.C. primary and then it's ABL and ABL in the run-off. We are truly displeased with our U.S. Senator. Hoping he comes in third in the primary. Well, why not?

Tim Scott is against amnesty. He is a close ally of DeMint.

He refused to endorse Graham. Gowdy is working towards amnesty or legal status or work permits or anything that might be a reward to the desires of illegals.

Gowdy doesn’t even want the race.

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/07/trey-gowdy-no-interest-in-graham-race-94224.html

I rate them like this.

1. Scott
2. Sanford
3. Duncan
4. Mulvanay
5. Gowdy

At least Mulvaney is out there pandering to the illegals are a town hall openly. I don’t think Mulvaney is as dangerous as Gowdy’s hidden agenda.

Agreed. Gowdy’s doing fine where he is, but the House already has a few (very few) feisty conservatives. The Senate could have used another.

And yes, if I could, I’d vote for Nikki over Lindsey.

Surprised you rated Gowdy #5 and not #25. Glad to see you weren't swayed by the LSM's constant carpet-bombing of Mark Sanford.

Please don't buy into the story the search engines and the anti-Gowdy FR posters have been portraying. Gowdy was ASSIGNED his committee and sub-committee seats and is just being Trey wherever he may be located at the time. Not his nature to just go-along to get-along.
