GOP Congressman Says it’s ‘BULLCRAP’ to Say That Taxpayers Pay His Salary

 There’s probably many rich Republicans that feel the same way, but U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) actually said this outloud….“You say you pay for me to do this? That’s bullcrap,”.  Apparently this fellow hasn’t taken any classes in Civics (or he failed them).

We hate to break it to you ‘Markwayne’, but your salary as a U.S. Representative doesn’t just appear out of thin air.  It’s paid out of the U.S. Treasury.  Where the hell do you think that money comes from.

We suggest that you go back to school, and get some minimal education before wasting our time in D.C.

From The Hill:

Rep. Markwayne Mullin (R-Okla.) faced off with constituents at a town hall this week, telling the members of the audience that they don’t pay his salary.

“You say you pay for me to do this? That’s bullcrap,” Mullin said at the town hall in Jay, Okla., according to a video of the incident.

“I pay for myself. I paid enough taxes before I got here and continue to through my company to pay my own salary. This is a service. No one here pays me to go,” he added.

After constituents pushed back, Mullin reiterated that being a lawmaker is not “how I make my living.”

It doesn’t matter how you make most of your money sir.  Your salary as a U.S. Representative is coming straight from the U.S. taxpayer.

You certainly aren’t smart enough to serve as a ‘legislator’ if you don’t even have this basic knowledge of government.

What do you think about Mr. Mullin?
