What Conservatives Believe?

...that it is natural and good to:

1. Take more money for yourself from the national treasury, while

2. Denying the poorest wage earners a modest raise.

Thus the 99.9 percent "pure conservative" Madam Foxx went along with raising her own congressional salary by $3,300 last week, to $168,500 per freakin' year, while fighting tooth & polished nail against raising the minimum hourly wage from $5.15 to $7.50.

For that queenly salary, The Madam is actually working fewer calendar days than any congress since the late 1940s. They've been in session this year for -- what? -- 70-some days, sum total!
