In the worst possible optics, senior-level Trump administration appointees are slated to get $10,000 raises while about 800,000 federal workers don’t see a dime of their paychecks due to the shutdown.
According to a Friday Washington Post report, Congress has renewed legislation placing a cap on pay for top government employees every year since 2013. By failing to pass legislation to keep the government funded, they allowed the current pay freeze to expire. If lawmakers don’t take action by Saturday, the accumulated raises will begin showing up on the paychecks of Cabinet secretaries, deputy secretaries and even Vice President Mike Pence.

We are just there to pay all expenses for their dog & pony show, including their food and clean up after each show.
We don’t have enough money to buy our way into their club, therefore we are the unwashed, uneducated masses, deserving our station in life.
We are only good for making their corrupt elections look somewhat honest.
We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
If you are wrong, it will be because you are not cynical enough.
Both major political parties are special interest groups enabling each other for power and money, at the expense of the people they no longer properly serve…
Always wear a proper mask when out and about. The life you save could be both yours and mine.

and may well replace it with private Corporations. THIS is what they work towards in every job appointment.
Animals know more than we do.

Pay for Politics. Trump was correct, he just didn’t mean it after he won.
Forcing people to work without pay is akin to slavery.
