    there's nothing like good old fashioned vote buying.

    way to go, nancy, meeting the high ethical standard we've come to expect from "the most ethical, transparent congress evah!!"

    "Pelosi said she will schedule a vote on a bill to provide the $250 payments when Congress returns for a lame duck session after the Nov. 2 congressional elections. The payments would be similar to those provided by the government's massive economic recovery package last year."

    Pelosi: House will vote in November on $250 payments for Social Security recipients - 10/14/2010 11:04:41 PM | Newser

    :lol:

    Well, how thoughtful of her. The elites have deemed from on high that the serfs will get a one time small pittance of THEIR OWN MONEY. What a joke.

    I don't know about you, but I'd vote for Nancy Pelosi if she'd give me $250.

    But you have to remember that I am a clean-shaven Marxist, you socialist bitch!

    Too late, Nan.... CG has already voted.

    And, California has already run out of other people's money.

    Good for her.

    Giving the common folk a bit of cash will stimulate the economy.

    $20.83 month, before taxes?

    I don't know who's the bigger asshole, the person who thinks they can buy someone off for that, or the person who can be bought off for that.

    the gov. has calculated that there is no increase necessary on a monthly basis ( for SS recipients) due to lack of inflation etc.....yet she is going to floor a vote to just throw them some pin money? I see.

    It makes you want to pull your hair out, you wanna scream wtf, how can they get away with it, then remember, they make their own rules....
