    is it beyond you to respond to a post without denigrating the entire other side?

    Gee.....
    I didn't expect that kind of response from you liblady. I expected something like "Wow! Way to Walker! I wish more of our politicans would follow his lead, especially my own party." Because we all know how nonpartisan you are.

    We were talking pay cuts. That's close enough.

    I know I'm pretty much a partisan hack, but to be called on it by someone like liblady is pot, kettle, black.

    Still, he did say he was willing to take one. Not that anyone has a choice if it's voted on. It's just really difficult to get our politicans to vote themselves a cut.
    Show me where he has said that he specifically would take a pay cut.

    They are allowed to voluntarily forgo the increase.

    Maybe they cut the video off before he said it?


    GOP Rep: I'm 'Struggling' On My $174K Salary (VIDEO) | TPMDC

    I can guarantee you, or most of you, I guarantee that I have more debt than all of you. With 6 kids, I still pay off my student loans. I still pay my mortgage. I drive a used minivan. If you think I'm living high on the hog, I've got one paycheck. So I struggle to meet my bills right now. Would it be easier for me if I get more paychecks? Maybe, but at this point I'm not living high on the hog.
    Duffy also said that he pays more in health care costs and retirement savings than he did when he was a district attorney before he ran for Congress. That said, Duffy said he'd support the idea of "public employees across the board" taking a compensation cut.
    "Let's all join hands together and say 'I'll take a pay decrease, absolutely," Duffy said.A Duffy spokesperson told TPM that Democrats are trying to make the salary line into a partisan shot.
