"(CNN)–Wisconsin Democrats aren't pulling any punches, or punchlines, when it comes to recent comments made by freshman GOP Rep. Sean Duffy. Last week the congressman told a constituent that, although the annual salary for congressional members is $174,000, "I struggle to meet my bills right now."
"Duffy said "I guarantee most of you, I have more debt than all of you. With six 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 off the hog, I've got one paycheck."
1. This is the guy who was elected to Congress to balance the budget and push for "fiscal responsibility" and yet he can't even balance his own checkbook.
2. $174,000 is a lot of money, even for someone who has to maintain two homes.
3. There are a lot of Duffys in the USA today, who are making lots of money, and yet squandering it at the same time.
