WE WON'T BE SAFE WHILE POLITICAL PARTIES ARE LEGAL

GETTING PAID FOR DOING NOTHING

Posted by politicalpartypooper on December 8, 2008

Vice President-elect Joe Biden, Secretary of State designate Hillary Clinton and White House Chief of Staff designate Rahm Emanuel all have one thing in common.  They are all Federal Elected officials who are still receiving salaries for positions they are no longer fulfilling.

In the cases of Biden and Clinton, it’s hard to understand why they wouldn’t resign and pay back the money they have received, since neither of those two really needs the income.  In the case of Rahm Emanuel, I don’t have enough information to state whether he is financially stable or not.  Nevertheless,  in “the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression”, wouldn’t it be prudent for these three to set an example of fiscal responsibility and accountability?  If you are not there to do your job, do you get paid?
