Congresswoman Cheri Bustos made a promise back in 2012 that she'd give up 10% of her salary if she was elected.
Well...guess what? She got elected.
And what didn't she do?
That's right: give up her 10%. Now...she's saying that she made a 'mistake' by even promising that she'd take the pay cut.
She didn't make a mistake. Cheri Bustos made a promise to voters.
“Congresswoman Bustos is wrong,” Schweppe said. “Her word isn’t good. She didn’t make a mistake—she made a promise. She made a promise and she broke it. If she wants to make good, she should give back the money. Period.
“And to say her word is good after everything she has ‘misspoken’ about—the shutdown pay, the investment in a Chinese company that ships American jobs overseas, the veterans cuts, the slanderous statements about Bobby Schilling’s employer—is almost laughable but mostly just sad at this point.”
