After sequester cuts hit, it'll be a hoot watching republicans demanding to cut more from Americans

What do they say the day after?

Dear America:

'Hey, we know it's going to be a disaster for workers who find themselves furloughed; we know it's going to be a disaster for folks who rely on the services we allowed to be cut; and, we're just sick about the fact that, because Pres. Obama wouldn't allow us to slice even more of the services you rely on (much of these a matter of survival); and, because we're determined to protect our very OWN tax advantages that we rely on to enrich ourselves far above the salary you pay us; we're going to allow Americans to suffer until someone agrees to take the money we want out of your pockets and out of the programs you need just to get by, instead.'

Sincerely yours,

John Boehner
Net Worth $2,700,000
Salary $223,500

Mitch McConnell
Net Worth $32,700,000
Salary $193,400

2. Sorry but how can McConnell have that much dough?

Oh, yes, insider trading is OK if you are in Congress.

3. here's a good look at that question

Daily Kos: How Mitch McConnell became very rich

Back in 2005, McConnell's net worth was somewhere between $1,645,032 and $4,278,999, ranking him the 38th richest Senator.

After four years when the stock market has flatlined, McConnell now has a net worth between $7,102,036 and $32,756,000, and he's now the 12th wealthiest Senator.

Pretty good, for a guy who has evidently NEVER had a private sector job . . .
