I cannot believe the audacity of the legislators voting themselves such a massive pay raise when everyone is suffering so severely from the “recession/depression,” or whatever you want to call it.
They knew what the pay was when they ran for office, and now they want to steal food and medicine from the people who elected them by giving themselves this enormous pay raise. And I am really disappointed in Gov. Bobby Jindal for allowing this to happen without a veto. So much for cleaning up politics in Louisiana.
I will remember the disregard they had for the people who elected them and who so loudly voiced their opinions against this raise, and I will remember the people who were elected to represent us, but who stabbed us in the back.
