US Congressman Alcee Hastings Asked for a Raise

Posted by Steve Markowitz on May 22, 2015

Currently, United States Congressmen receive a salary of $174,000 per year.  In addition, their offices receive an expense budget of $1 million annually.  However, that’s not enough for at least one congressman, Alcee Hastings, Democrat from Illinois who earlier this week said:

“We are entering our seventh year without a pay raise.  Now I think we’ve proven to the American people that we are responsible.  And I know that it has impacted me personally.

Hastings takes delusional Washington behavior to the next level.  Forgetting for a moment that Congressmen, supposed servants of the people make nearly three times that of average Americans, does Hastings actually believe that the politicians have “proven to the American people that we are responsible”?
