Wisconsin GOP lawmaker complains of struggling on a $174,000 salary
The Republican Party in Polk County, Wisconsin has demanded that video of Rep. Sean Duffy (R) complaining about his $174,000/year salary be pulled from the Internet.
Talking Points Memo reposted the clip Wednesday.
“I can guarantee you, or most of you, I guarantee that I have more debt than all of you,” Duffy said. “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.”
