House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that she opposes a cut in congressional pay because it would diminish the dignity of lawmakers’ jobs.
“I don’t think we should do it; I think we should respect the work we do,” Pelosi told reporters in the Capitol. “I think it’s necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded.”
So remember, boys and girls, the moral of the story is:
When your boss or your company suggests you take a pay cut, you can quote a Famous Demorat and say: “I’m sorry, I can’t do that; it would undermine the dignity of my job.”
It’ll work every time. Guaranteed.
