Across America, families are forced to pinch pennies thanks to Biden’s inflation. Christmas is even harder, with energy prices skyrocketing, travel plans canceled, and gifts costing more than ever.
Imagine how bad it is in a blue city like New York. There is a reason people are fleeing the Rotten Apple, as Biden’s inflation and high taxes are even worse. But do you want to know the real kicker? As Americans struggle to cover basic expenses, New York Democrats are giving themselves a pay raise.
From The Washington Examiner:
Merry Christmas, New York taxpayer.
You will be funding a $32,000 yearly pay raise for legislators if a pair of Democratic-sponsored bills pass the Assembly and Senate on Thursday, giving New York lawmakers the highest salary among state legislators in the nation.
How nice. New York lawmakers already earn $110,000 a year. That’s a pretty penny for an elected official. The only state who pays their bloodsuckers–I mean–lawmakers more is California. But that is chump change, apparently, since they want even more in the new year.
Democrats in New York are demanding a $32,000 pay raise. Not only that, but it looks as if they are trying to sneak the pay raise through before the end of the year, so nobody notices. So, not only are they trying to rip off New York taxpayers, but to hide it from them.
Please keep in mind, New York is in debt like most blue states. The tax rates are already through the roof. Where are these Democrats going to find this money? You know the answer, they are going to raise taxes.
Talk about gratitude. These Democrats are responsible for the rampant crime in NYC, as they supported moves to deprive cops of funding and policies that put criminals back on the street. They are responsible for New York being much more expensive than other states.
Yet they think they deserve an increase in pay that’s higher than some folk’s yearly salary! This is the kind of thing that makes people sick and tired of Democrats. They sit back and do little to help Americans. In fact, most of their decisions put Americans through unnecessary pain.
And for that, they charge us through the nose. New Yorkers keep leaving the state because of high taxes and other problems. This news is surely going to inspire many more folks to up and leave. Heck, if I was still living there, this would be enough for me to pack up the U-Haul.
- New York Democrats are voting to give themselves a $32,000 pay raise.
- These lawmakers are currently making $110,000 a year.
- This comes as inflation hammers the average American, making everything cost more.
- New York has suffered as hundreds of thousands of residents left in recent years.
