    I just saw this on Yahoo.
    Can you believe that Congress members don't think they are being paid enough.
    Steve Southerland (Republican)says the $174,000.00 salary is not enough. One of his problems is that it takes too much time and he is "cut-off" from his family business. In Panama, the country!!
    Sean Duffy, another Republican from Wisconsin says it is a "struggle" to pay his mortgage!!
    Their $174,000.00 salary is 3-4 times more than the average American.
    Another question for all you Republicans. How many Congress members, Republican or Democrat belong to the ATA and shoot regularly? Probably none, they can't afford it.

    Bob,

    This is posted in the political section under "What do you think". Really should be posted there. JMO.

    Sorry, Stl Flyin. There is so much political crap on the whole website I relly did not pay attention to where I was posting it. I will try to be more thoughtful next time.

    I had high hopes that Southerland would be a fresh, effectual rep in Washington. "I'll just tell you: This job don't mean that much to me." is not an attitude I find satisfactory as a constituent. His predecessor, Boyd, was a political snake who finally got too beltway for the Big Bend and paid a price. Southerland will get kicked to the curb next election. This was not a good day for Florida republican politics.

    You got it right, Smok; but there seems to be no one that is capable AND willing!

    (Apologies for continuing this mis-topic thread)
