Rep. Phil Gingrey Being Held Hostage

Rep. Phil Gingrey of Georgia is being held hostage and we need to work to save him.

Rep. Phil Gingrey Being Held Hostage

Perhaps you haven’t heard, but we have a serious hostage situation going on in Georgia right now. The victim is one Phil Gingrich, a Republican that represents Georgia’s 11th congressional district. Here’s more about this developing situation from Raw Story:

A Georgia Republican congressman was caught complaining about what he described as a low salary in a closed-door meeting with fellow party members concerning the Affordable Care Act, the National Review reported.

During a discussion concerning a possible exemption for lawmakers and staff members from taking part in the state health exchanges mandated by the new law, Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA) reportedly lamented that aides can become lobbyists “and make 500,000 a year. Meanwhile I’m stuck here making $172,000 a year.”

The evil voters of Georgia’s 11th have been holding this poor man hostage for the past 10 years and only giving him a lowly salary of $172,000 per year. How in the world can someone survive on such chump-change??? 

Hopefully the voters in Georgia will show some form of compassion next year and release Dr. Phil from his shackles and let him be free to flourish.
