Nancy Pelosi: Even Members of Congress 'Cannot Live' Without Getting Paychecks on Time

“I don’t know about you..."

Before Congress voted Friday to fund the Department of Homeland Security for one week, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) attempted to illustrate how difficult it would be for DHS employees to go without getting paid.

“I don’t know about you, but I think almost everybody I know cannot live without having our paycheck on time – members of Congress even," Pelosi said.

She didn't add that most members of Congress make an annual salary of $174,000 — nor that she's the 14th richest member of Congress, with a net worth of $29.01 million, according to Roll Call.
