Republicans in charge in Jeff City, cutting spending. Yeah, right
Did you see this headline in yesterday's Star:
Missouri House employees got three raises in the past year
JEFFERSON CITY -- Employees of the Missouri House have received three raises during the past year — more than other workers in state government.
The first raise was last year in mid-November and another was approved this past summer, the Jefferson City News Tribune reported.
Besides the raises specifically for House employees, the state budget that took effect this past July calls for a 2 percent raise for all state workers earning less than $70,000, including House employees.
And these are the people who are supposed to be cutting government spending?
They--the Republicans, who are in charge down there--are supposed to be the ones who are "good stewards" with the people's money?
Three raises in one year?
That's defensible how?
