"By the time I feed my family, I have maybe $400,000 left over..."
- Rep. John Fleming (R-LA), in an interview on MSNBC, on why as a small business owner he can't afford a tax increase.
The congressman is a multimillionaire. I am sure he has even more than 400k at the end of the day.
This shows either how out of touch the Republicans are, or how damned selfish they are, or both. The congressman here exhibits the emotional intelligence of an adolescent.
One can see why congress only has a 12% approval rating. Why anyone working for a paycheck would ever vote for Republican these days is beyond me.
