Nancy Pelosi begs us not to ruin her dignity by cutting her paycheck

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is speaking out against a cut in congressional pay because she says it will undermine the dignity of their positions. “I think we should respect the work we do,” Pelosi said. “I think it’s necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded.” (“Dignity” is apparently a synonym for “fat paycheck.”) Pelosi, whose husband, Paul, is a legit real-estate mogul, was quick to add that slicing her own paycheck wouldn’t “mean as much” as those senators who struggle to make ends meet on $174,000 per year. “We are obviously contemplating a sequester,” Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer (D) said. “Obviously we are going to take a cut, like everybody else.”

    In order to assist those poor struggling senators who must travel hither and yon making personal appearances for mere thousands of dollars in ‘speaking fees’ and other assorted sundry demeaning activities which they are forced to engage in in order to keep the Frigidaire stocked with Dom Perignon and Perrier, I propose this…

    Let’s build dorms for our elected representatives.

    Owned by the taxpayers, the politicos would (by law, because the government knows what’s best) lease them for a meager amount compared to the outrageous rents charges by those heartless landlords who gouge them for the mansions which they only occupy part-time anyway.

    The effect of this would be multifaceted.

    Not only would it keep their expenses down, allowing them to spend more time in Washington doing the job for which they were elected, but by freeing up housing it would drive down demand, resulting in not only the availability of more housing, but make those domiciles more affordable for the homeless single mothers and starving children for whom they profess such empathy.

    Anyone care to hear about my ideas for the dorm cafeteria?
