Glenn Grothman lauds poverty lifestyle

Wisconsin Tea Party/Republican buffoon and Michele Bachmann stand-in Glenn Grothman thinks poor sinners in Wisconsin are living large because of government "bribes."
...a single parent with a couple kids can easily get $35,000 a year in total benefits between the health care and the earned income credit and the FoodShare and the low-income housing and what have you," Grothman said. "And that's after taxes. How many people make $35,000 a year after taxes? Most people don't.
Imagine what Grothman - -- whose annual salary as a US Congressman will balloon to $174,000 (plus lots of goodies, like free airplane tickets, a bigger pension, and what have you) from $49,943 as a Wisconsin State Senator - - will be saying when he's soon available full-time in Washington, DC to Fox cameras.

What does he think about Assembly Majority Leader Bill Kramer grabbing about $60K in taxpayer-funded salary and benefits while under indictment and now conviction for sex crimes? Someone ask Glenny about that one, and see if it's different because it involves a white guy from the 262 him.

Way to go Sheboygan, Manitowoc, Fondy, Oshkosh, Portage and Mequon. You own this guy now.

Mr. Rowen,
If you or a reader wanted to delve into the exact amounts that say, a single parent with 2 children could *actually* get from these exact sources that Grothman describes,

why then, you'd be catching him in his first raging lie and the process of shoehorning him OUT of that House seat can begin.

Let the ridicule begin!!

Maybe we'll see a new benefit offered by Senator Grothmann. Free vasectomies.

AND GG will be 'double-dipping' as conservatives like to throw at teachers, even though it's not. Grothman will collect his state pension (how much did he pay into it?) as well as his federal one.

Even though Grossman is underage for retirement. . . . or, maybe not. No one born in the last 50 years would choose that hairstyle.
