Republican Congressman Tells His Constituents That Because He’s Rich, He Doesn’t Work For Them!
During a town hall event that was captured on video and shared via social media on Monday, Rep. Markwayne Mullin became defensive when a constituent pointed out that taxpaying citizens pay his salary.“Bull crap, I paid for myself,” the Republican congressman pushed back against his own constituent. “I paid enough taxes before I ever got here and continue to through my company to pay my own salary. This is a service. No one here pays me to do it. I do it as an honor and a service.”With his self-pitying argument, Mullin suggested that a higher tax burden represents some kind of economic injustice. (Spoiler alert: It doesn’t).When one attendee demanded that Mullin give up the six-figure salary that he currently makes, Mullin reiterated that “I have before, I’ve actually paid it back.” Posted By Abdul
