Hey ladies how much does Obama make an hour? Or Congress...$9.00 an hour? I propose our public servants make the wage they declare should be satisfactory for us, should be satisfactory enough for them ( not that they need it) so here we go...
9.00x40 minus tax about 20-30 percent
-Mortgage insurance replace these all if rent will be higher than mortgage anyway
-Property tax (again passes down if rent)
-Gas to commute to work
-Cable and internet
-Clothes for work
-Makeup to look presentable
-Toiletries so you don't get lice or smell bad (body was costs about 9.00 a bittle where I live so that's about an hour of work for every 30 showers)
-Tampons ladies also about 9.00 a box so that's an hour of work for every period really gettin screwed on this one
-Health insurance (mandatory)
-Cell in case of flat on way to work
-Birth control since can't afford children and not covered by insurance
-Student loans (but most secretaries don't have an education so may not apply)
-Car registration and yearly inspection fee
-Forgetting other things I'm sure ...
Isn't the way to bring prosperity back to bring down the monopolistic prices of commodities? 9.00 an hour is a joke in comparison to these, Ceo pay, corp write-offs and bailouts....
Has Obama been brainwashed to believe this is the solution? Hey secretaries what is the average hourly pay of your elected congressman?
