‘Crazier Than I Thought’: Multimillionaire Nancy Pelosi Claims Congressmen are Living Paycheck to Paycheck

Many Democrats continue to pretend that they are advocates of the working class but in reality, serve as proponents of government dependency. Among those who pretend to maintain “working class” credentials is House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosu who claims that Congress is living paycheck to paycheck. BizPac Review reports on Pelosi’s delusion:

????????

Nancy Pelosi is out of the House speaker’s chair,  but she’s not out of stupid things to say.

At a Thursday news briefing, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., expressed alarm that Department of Homeland Security employees may see their pay interrupted, and claimed they live paycheck to paycheck just like many members of Congress.

“I don’t know about you, but I think almost everybody I know cannot live without having our paycheck on time – members of Congress even,” Pelosi said, speaking of the DHS funding bill. “And yet they’re [the GOP lawmakers] asking the Department of Homeland Security people to do that.”

She failed to mention that members of Congress receive a base salary of $174,000, which is more than four times that of the average American wage-earner during the year 2013 — $43,041.39.

Also, as house minority leader, Pelosi receives an extra bump of $19,400, giving her a congressional salary of $193,400, excluding benefits.

But Pelosi’s salary as a congresswoman is but chump change to her. She the 14th wealthiest member of Congress, according to Roll Call, with a net worth of $29.01 million.

She is also, as one social media maven put it, “crazier than I thought.”

It is unclear how Pelosi continues to get reelected; her messaging is sloppy and often so “out there,” it makes Joe Biden look halfway reasonable.
