New York Democrats voted to give themselves a 29 percent salary increase just days before Christmas, potentially making Albany the highest-paid state legislature in the nation.  Members of the state Assembly and Senate would make a base salary of $142,000 under a bill they passed during a special session, a $32,000 raise from their current $110,000. Their new salary is three times the average New Yorkers' salary of $43,208. Their last pay raise was in 2018, when they went from $79,500 to $110,000. It was the first time in 20 years New York Legislators received an increase. Their pay in 1998 was $57,500.

If you think your own state is being run by a bunch of money-grubbing half-wits, just take a look at New York and your spirits will rise immediately. Even California might look good to New Yorkers right about now.

The first thing a new Senator or Assemblyperson learns in Albany is that you do exactly as told by the boss otherwise you will have no committee appointments which means extra thousands a year and will be primaried out the next election. What’s there to do other then do as told and try to funnel as much State money to your pocket as possible. This corrupt game continues especially with an equally corrupt Governor in charge.

Most believe Americans have forgotten the “real meaning” of Christmas, a recent Ipsos poll released ahead of the holiday found. Three-quarters at least somewhat agree that Americans have forgotten the “real meaning” of Christmas, and of those, 42 percent “strongly” agree.  Even more Christians, 84 percent, agree that Americans have lost the true meaning of Christmas, and most Republicans and Democrats, 88 percent and 66 percent, respectively, agree as well.  Further, even non-religious Americans agree that Americans have forgotten the real meaning of Christmas. Notably, the survey did not ask respondents to identify what they consider the “true meaning” of Christmas to be.

President Joe Biden’s administration reportedly failed to send National Guard troops their final paycheck of the year during the week of Christmas, according to a letter sent to troops obtained by The Post Millennial. The National Guard troops’ paychecks were disrupted due to congressional drama surrounding the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill that Congress recently approved. After weeks of negotiation, Congress came to a deal on the omnibus spending package. Included in the spending bill is, among other things, a $45 billion aid package for Ukraine. The $45 billion is on top of the $66 billion taxpayer dollars that have already been used to fund Ukrainian aid.

On Tuesday, the Democrat-led House Means and Ways Committee voted along party lines to release Trump’s tax returns. Within hours, it published data from Trump’s 2015-2020 returns. The Committee obtained the documents through an appeals court ruling that ordered Trump to turn them over following a years-long legal battle.

More than half the members of the House of Representatives called out sick Friday when the lower chamber passed the massive $1.7 trillion spending bill – instead opting to take advantage of the widely-abused COVID-era proxy voting system.  A bipartisan group of 226 congressional lawmakers filed proxy letters with the House clerk before Friday’s vote on the omnibus spending bill, giving notice that they will designate a colleague to vote in their place. The pandemic-era policy allowing lawmakers to choose a representative to vote in their stead was instituted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) in 2020,

He also said Trump's "political clout has diminished." "We lost support that we needed among independents and moderate Republicans, primarily related to the view they had of us as a party—largely made by the former president—that we were sort of nasty and tended toward chaos,"
