M73- CAN YOU HEAR THE SQUEALS?

I CAN HEAR SQUEALS ALL THE WAY TO CAPITAL HILL ..... Story
Senate OKs Bill to Reduce Salaries Judges, Justices
The Senate
has approved a bill cutting the salaries of the Commonwealth's justices and judges by 10 percent across the board. The bill, sponsored by Sen. Maria Pangelinan, states that the tax base cannot continue to support the Judiciary's large payroll. The bill will become law once approved by the House of Representatives and signed by the governor.
FYI only, just wait and listen, you will hear the squeals too! Loud and long!

Oink Oink. 10% wasn't enough. They're getting well over $100,000. There salaries should have been reduced to $80 - $85,000. They'll still be garnering above $100,000.

It's good for show and setting an example: no effect until there's an election or a new judge.

What about the Legislature?
