Americans Favor Fifteen Dollars an Hour for Congress
By Andy Borowitz, The New Yorker
17 April 15
The article below is satire. Andy Borowitz is an American comedian and New York Times-bestselling author who satirizes the news for his column, "The Borowitz Report."
mericans took to the streets in large numbers on Thursday to show their support for a fifteen-dollar-an-hour wage for members of Congress.
In major cities across the nation, fast-food workers and other service employees held signs, shouted chants, and gave impassioned speeches to demonstrate their conviction that Congress deserves a maximum hourly wage of fifteen dollars.
“Members of Congress are people, just like you and me,” Tracy Klugian, a McDonald’s employee who took part in the Washington protest, said. “They should be paid what they deserve.”
Assuming that they continue to take off approximately two hundred and forty days a year, members of Congress earning the proposed maximum would see their average annual income adjusted from a hundred and seventy-four thousand dollars to thirteen thousand five hundred dollars, a salary that many marchers called “fair and equitable.”
“I know what members of Congress will say: ‘I can’t live on that,’” Harland Dorrinson, a protester in Chicago, said. “Well, if they want to earn more, they should go out and acquire some skills.”
While organizers of the marches proclaimed today’s protests a success, in some cities the demonstrations met some opposition from counter-protesters, who argued that fifteen dollars was too much.
Washington (CNN)President Barack Obama blasted the Senate Friday for stalling on the nomination of Loretta Lynch to be the next attorney general, the longest wait for a nominee to lead the Justice Department in three decades.
"Enough. Enough. Call Loretta Lynch for a vote, get her confirmed, let her do her job. This is embarrassing," Obama told reporters during a joint White House press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.
"There are times where the dysfunction in the Senate just goes too far," the President added. "This is an example of it."
If confirmed, Lynch would be the first African-American woman to lead the Justice Department. It has been 160 days since Obama nominated her on Nov. 8, and the delay in her confirmation is the longest since Ronald Reagan tapped Edwin Meese for the post in 1984.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is holding up Lynch's nomination as leverage to push Democrats to drop a filibuster on an unrelated anti-human trafficking bill. Democrats object to that measure because it contains an abortion provision. McConnell has said he won't bring up Lynch for a vote until the dispute is resolved.
Obama called on Congress to move her nomination forward, saying that no one could articulate a reason beyond political gamesmanship as to why she has not been confirmed.

The moment was a particularly politically-charged one during a press conference largely focused on international trade and the Iranian nuclear agreement.

Republicans in the Senate have yet to offer a timeline as to a possible vote on Lynch's confirmation, and Eric Holder continues to serve as attorney general.
McConnell's office insisted Friday that the majority leader is working to resolve Lynch's nomination.
"The leader has already announced that the Lynch nomination will get a vote," McConnell's Deputy
