Thought of the Day – 11/4/2014 – You Get What They Paid For

4 Nov

If I paid $50,000 for the opportunity to get hired as a minimum wage cashier at McDonald’s, you’d either think I was a moron or I had some shady plan in place to make my money back.

Yet, we don’t think anything of candidates who spend tens of thousands of dollars for an office that pays $12,000, plus per diem (Nebraska legislature) or millions for an office that pays $174,000 (U.S. House and Senate).

So are we electing morons or are these elected officials recouping their losses?

I approve this message

    Am I wrong that they get to deduct some “expenses” from their fundraising? I think they do recoup is what I”m saying. .
