    Who is the one who just argued that CEO's shouldn't make more than the president ($400K)? I wonder if she voted for this?

    I hate to say it but it appears the Dems won't be in control after this election. Looks like they are betraying our trust and abusing the power given by the people.

    Just like them to do such a thing, just after the President voiced outrage over bonuses being paid out by the Wall Street companies after getting bail out cash from the Feds.

    I keep looking for a caveat, this IS FoxNews, after all, but it doesn't seem there is one.

    To me they are yelling, "Fire me, fire me" because I'm gonna steel you blind, before destroying your way of life, and living off you the rest of my life....

    What's strange is I can't find a written article on this. Just links to the youtube clip. I can't even find the article on foxnews.com...

    Yep... Getting hard to determine who will do a little for the people in the midst of all they do for themselves...

    I still can't find this story on anything but conservatives blogs. Not even Fox has it. I wonder how someone made a video like that or is it from years ago and they want us to believe it is current???

    Sadly, the best service we could do for ourselves is to vote out any and every person in Congress.

    However, we, the electorate, are stupid. We insist, "Oh, they're all crooks...but MY congressman is all right," or, "We have to keep her in office...she brings home so much money to the district!"

    We have gotten what we deserve, unfortunately.

    Of course...there are scumbags in the US, and they deserve representation. But not ALL of them!! :D

    I think there are plenty of Fox enemies who would love to dismantle the story.

    LeBuick, there are plenty of date references, that a first grader would know it's a recent video. I don't get why you would say that.

    Because I can't find one news source carrying the story to include Foxnews.com. There is something fishy when you can't find the article on the sources site. Just youtube and plenty of conservative blogs.

    So you dishonestly slander the story, by questioning the date, when it is so obvious this is recent ? Tsk, tsk.


    I believe the story to be true, and base it on morons like Olbermann & Maddow being ever so willing to slam the station. If you can prove it untrue, you should probably do it. Remember how the National Enquirer was not believed when they broke the John Edwards story ?

    Not on my TV. What channel have you seen it on? This is supposedly from Fox news, why is there no mention of it on their site? Why can't someone prove me silly and post me to a legitimate news link and not a conservative blog or youtube?

    Like I said, the drive by media was awful silent, as they waited for the Edwards story to die. No one wanted to touch it, because it made a liberal hero into a dirtbag. I suspect the same thing is happening here.

    But if Fox put it on the air, why didn't they put it on their site? Rev says it's been all over the news, I haven't seen it anywhere but on youtube.

    I haven't seen it on the news at all either and you would think this would be big enough news that is couldn't be "covered" up....

    Does anyone have a link to a news article and not the YouTube video?

    Are you saying that Fox might not be telling the whole story?

    Fox biased??

    Surely not, only the commie pinko libs demoncrats present biased news.

    Seriously, no matter what, adding any kind of expense at this time is ludicrous.
