They Couldn't Give A Shit How It Looks

They've given up about what people think. Michael Rivero of WhatReallyHappened has always maintained that the last act of government criminals is to loot the treasury and he's absolutely right - congress is in the process of saddling the american people with staggering debt to the tune of $8,000,000,000,000 +, two trillion of which goes somewhere we'll never know about. Why? The Fed refuses to tell us.

So keeping in line with their theft on this previously unimaginable scale, the congressional swine have completely ignored hurting citizens and a few days ago rewarded themselves for all the hard work of robbing you and me by giving themselves yet another pay increase.

With economy in shambles, Congress gets a raise

"A crumbling economy, more than 2 million constituents who have lost their jobs this year, and congressional demands of CEOs to work for free did not convince lawmakers to freeze their own pay.
Instead, they will get a $4,700 pay increase, amounting to an additional $2.5 million that taxpayers will spend on congressional salaries, and watchdog groups are not happy about it."

"“They don’t even go through the front door. They have it set up so that it’s wired so that you actually have to undo the pay raise rather than vote for a pay raise,” Ellis said."

Hunger mounts in the US

"In a chilling statement on social conditions in the US, 72 percent of surveyed food charities said that they are unable to meet the current demands of local communities for assistance. In most cases, the charities have responded by offering smaller distributions to the hungry, and some have been forced to close down."
