Boehner is lieing through his teeth.
The 27th only freezes COLA and raises. These clowns will continue to draw their pieces of silver from our tax money. They just will not see their raises kick in.
That is the way I read the 27th.
These leeches have been draining our checkbook forever and there isn’t a one of them that needs the pay they are getting. They got to the “trough” by having enough money inhand (or behind them). It cost money to play at that level and I trust they have adequate reserves to carry them for some time. this “bill” is only window dressing.
