Bill Batchelder's law of earned pay

ASIDE TO Bill Batchelder, the Ohio House speaker:

A report by the Associated Press quoted you as opposing the proposed 5 cut for lawmakers because you believe they "earn" their pay. Does this mean that you don't believe that everyone who has been forced to accept pay cuts - some much greater than 5 pct. - during these hard times don't "earn" their pay?

I nominate the Speaker for one of your "Gall" awards, the unmitigated type.

With this crowd, there will be many more opportunities!

Abe, it's important to properly decode Batchelder's statement. He's pointing his GOP finger of reprimand at folks like you and me who depend on unearned senior welfare (aka Social Security and Medicare) to survive.

According to the GOP, you guys and gals on Social Security and Medicare are greedy welfare queens.
