But in Republican Dollars ….

Wisconsin Congresscritter Sean Duffy made a giant ole fool of himself on the You Tube.  While saying that  he supports cutting compensation for all public employees, like Scott Walker  has proposed, Duffy says he’s just barely keeping the wolves at bay on his $174,000 congressional salary.

I can guarantee you, or most of you, I guarantee that I have more debt than all of you. With 6 kids, I still pay off my student loans. I still pay my mortgage. I drive a used minivan. If you think I’m living high on the hog, I’ve got one paycheck. So I struggle to meet my bills right now. Would it be easier for me if I get more paychecks? Maybe, but at this point I’m not living high on the hog.

“Now I know you people think that’s ridiculous that he needs $174,000 to live on while the median household income in his district is $50,520,” Juanita grins.  “And that he’s for cutting everyone else’s governmental salary except his own.”

“It’s not ridiculous.  $174,000 isn’t that much money.  For goodness sake in Republican dollars, that’s like $25,000,” she explains the mathematics.

“So, in Republican dollars, Poor Ole Sean hardly has a pot to pee in.  I think the Republican dollar exchange rate is running 7 to 1 right now.”


By the way, Guys, Duffy is the former star of MTV’s Real World where he danced in his bloomers on a pool table.  Maybe he could make more money doing that on the weekends.

Others are just catching wind of the tree-climbing 38-year-old’s night-clubbing, woman-chasing antics on the 1997 Boston season of “The Real World.” There’s a video of Duffy on YouTube dancing on a pool table in boxer shorts while drinking beer.
