    "Are members of Congress paid enough?"

    http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/m...165641960.html

    A few lawmakers have suggested in recent months that despite a $174,000 annual salary, generous health care and pensions, and perks for things like travel and mail, being one of the elite 435 ain't always what it's cracked up to be.
    At the height of the debate over a possible government shutdown last spring, Linda Sánchez, a Democratic representative from California, said during an MSNBC interview that she was living "paycheck to paycheck" on her congressional salary.

    And then there is this...

    Warren Buffett, hypocrite

    This one’s truly, uh ... rich: Billionaire Warren Buffett says folks like him should have to pay more taxes -- but it turns out his firm, Berkshire Hathaway, hasn’t paid what it’s already owed for years.

    . . .

    Maybe Linda Sánchez should learn to live within her means.

    Oh wait!!! She's a democrat... I'm sure she's trying to spend her way into wealth.

    Paycheck to paycheck on ~$175,000 a year - brings a tear to the eye for her plight......

    The University of Manitoba said it is reviewing its policy on how to accommodate students with disabilities despite winning a victory in court this week over a controversial decision to grant a PhD to a student who failed his courses due to “extreme exam anxiety.”

    Gábor Lukács, a former child math prodigy who started university at age 12 and was a professor by age 24, sued the university over its decision to grant the student, identified only in court documents as A.Z., a PhD in math although he had twice failed his comprehensive exams and was missing a graduate course.

    Thursday, Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Deborah McCawley rejected Mr. Lukács request that the court intervene and rescind the degree, saying he didn’t have standing to take the case to court.

    The university had defended its decision, saying it was legally required to accommodate a student’s disability, in this case, exam anxiety.

    Mr. Lukács had argued that the university had damaged its credibility and was at risk of turning into a “diploma mill,” a claim the judge said was “unsubstantiated.”
    How can they possibly not think this makes them a laughing stock?

    Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway owes $1 billion in back taxes

    That's Billion with a "B".
