Bill Young (R-FL) – ‘GOP Moron of the Day’

Via: The Raw Story

A worker in Florida got an earful from Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-FL) on Wednesday when he asked the congressman to support a bill that would raise the minimum wage to $10 an hour. (Note: the same ‘buying power’ a worker had in 1968)

“Jesse Jackson, Jr. is passing a bill around to increase the minimum wage to 10 bucks an hour,” the man tells Young in a video obtained by FLDemocracy. “Do you support that?”

“Probably not,” Young replies.

“Ten bucks, that would give us a living wage,” the constituent points out.

“How about getting a job?” Young snaps.

“I do have one, $8.50 an hour,” the man insists.

Why do you want that benefit?” Young grumbles. “GET a JOB.”

“I DO HAVE a JOB, but it’s not enough to get by on,” the man explains as Young turns away.

In 2010, the Florida Republican voted for a cost-of-living pay increase for himself and other members of Congress.

He currently makes the default yearly Congressional salary of $174,000.

personal thoughts:

1. NOT counting percs: $174,000 @ 40-hour week = $83.65 per hour.

2. Bill ‘not so’ Young is running for his 22nd term in the House.

So, WTF ever happened to the ‘term-limits’ the wingnuts were all wound up about?

huh? huh? huh?

  1. Rep. Young is such a tool. He works for the people of this country yet he has no understanding of the issues faced by 99% of us. And you’d think that, at $174K a year, he could afford someone to tend to those eyebrows of his.

  2. He’s been in office for thirty-two years, and I’m sure the Florida voters will give him another two – I mean damn, talk about tools!
