Marjorie Taylor Greene Thinks $174k a Year is Too Low
On Glenn Greenwald's podcast, MTG complained that her $174,000 salary is too low and her job is too hard.
"I made a lot more money before I got here," she said. "I’ve lost money since I’ve gotten here."
Her salary is close to 3 times the median HOUSEHOLD income in her district.
The Backlash is Real
There has been swift backlash against her comments, from many commenters.
One Twitter user said, "Being in Congress isnt supposed to be about money."
Another said, "You don't get to serve the Constitution and its people expecting to profit."
Spotting Toxic Leadership
Greene fits into "the Child" model of toxic leadership--wanting attention instead of caring about her constituents.
