Pennsylvania's state legislators, horribly overworked and shamefully underpaid, are seeking a pay raise. How long could we look into the faces of our legislators, worn from mandating American flags in every classroom, defending our children from Charles Darwin and keeping firearms readily accessable, without giving them their just deserts.
An old line from a long-past election campaign: "99% of state legislators get re-elected. Would you give the state legislature a 99% approval rating?" Unfortunately, less than 1% of Pennsylvanians gives a damn.
