Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

A modest proposal for the Republicans:

No salary, minimum hourly wages, and based on how many actual hours they represented their state.

In other words, a workweek for Republicans is usually what, 3 hours?

The rest of the time is spent trying to mooch off the corporate teats.

Now, with that in mind, the Republicans have earned $23.25.

Taxes:

FICA, state, federal - strip strip strip

Here's a fucking penny for your efforts.

Also, it does not cover your benefits so you'll have to pay out of your pockets - so say bye bye to that shiny penny and we'll slap an IOU for $451.99 to be paid ASAP, or we'll sic a bill collector for you deadbeats.

1. I have only one question for you in response ...

... Do you really think they would spend less of their time "trying to mooch off the corporate teats" if you took away their salary and benefits?
