Congresswoman proposed reducing the US Secretary of Defense's salary to one dollar due to his “poor performance”

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin should cut his salary to $1 because he can't do his job. This was stated by Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, who introduced a corresponding initiative for consideration by Congress.

Greene's proposal is formalized as an amendment to the draft US military budget. It has now been submitted to members of the US House of Representatives. Of course, it is unlikely that this initiative will be supported by a majority of members of the House of Representatives, but the very fact of its appearance is quite remarkable.



Greene believes that Pentagon chief Austin should be punished for “poor work” because his work was a complete failure. Austin allowed risks to US national security, which is unacceptable, the congresswoman believes.

The salary of the US Secretary of Defense is more than 220 thousand dollars a year. Lloyd Austin's total fortune was estimated at $7 million. But Austin, at least as is officially believed, earned most of this money before his appointment as head of the American military department. After leaving the army, he served on the board of Raytheon Technologies, one of the largest American defense industrial companies.

Let us remember that Austin is 70 years old and spent most of his adult life, from the early 1970s to 2016, in the armed forces, retiring as commander of the US Central Command and with the rank of general.

      A policeman came to apply for a job in the police. He was accepted. A month, two, three passed, and he never came for his salary.
      The boss calls him and asks:
      - Why don’t you come for your salary? Not needed, or what?!
      “I thought they gave me a gun and go around as you please.”

      It’s good that our Minister of Defense works well, and none of the deputies proposes to reduce his salary. It’s interesting - we now know the salary figures for the American minister, but no one publishes our salary. And this is correct, secrecy must take place, the enemy will not find out such important information ̶о̶т̶ ̶н̶а̶с̶. Damn, I forgot that we have no official enemies, there are only partners around...

        Sometimes you want to find out from people how they know everything, without being confronted with materials and real facts of a person’s work, but at the same time they are ready to pour more than one bucket of shit on him???

          So ask the congresswoman this question the next time you want to know. Maybe she will explain why she considers the work of her minister bad, in whose army every soldier is provided with communications and ammunition, while for the Russian army relatives and volunteers collect money for this.

            Oleg, are you sure that “relatives and volunteers are collecting money for the Russian one.”
            Somehow it looks weirdly fake.)

            Nikolay, I already got seven penalty points for this “how do they know everything”, like they write who knows what?)

            This topic is already outdated. Those who sign the contract are given a lump sum of 600 rubles. in addition to the salary, with which they can buy whatever their heart desires. The sniper guy has been on LBS for 000 months already, he spent 2/2 of his one-time allowance on armored armor, a helmet, etc. what they gave out was nothing. This is also due to the fact that prices have skyrocketed for military ammunition, but this is capitalism and the size of the benefit takes this into account.

      Due to the poor performance of the government in the USA, all ministers and their assistants there can be transferred to a salary of 1 dollar.

        President Trump received one dollar salary, but why shouldn’t Biden and his ministers receive one dollar each, because they steal more than Trump.

        Again discrimination, the Negro is to blame, but the guilty Jew is not to blame. There’s no smell of BLM anymore, take it higher.

      Overall a classic. The previous ones sawed, for example, the first minister under Bidon - in fact, he came straight from Raytheon - and immediately all the contracts were sent there... Then they shoved a bunch of purchased Mr. onto the black man, and the black man is to blame for having been sawing for decades, buying fucking unnecessary Zyamas, LCS, F -35, other nonsense like mechanical dogs, and then they found out that the Air Force, with all the grayed-out “invisible” cameras, is not capable of fighting with anyone, even the Taliban, but who is to blame? Lobby that sawed?
      Well, an example - the official result of the investigation - why can’t 40 years replace Bradley?! They found out “The corruption of SOME senior Pentagon officers who promoted the interests of SOME manufacturing companies is to blame.” Well, what kind of companies, what kind of officers? Here's the classic - blame the black man, BLM, they won't put him in prison, but find who sawed him...
      Zadornov was right:
      1) "It's all because of the money"
      2) Well, stupid

      Is it possible to offend a black man? Of course, not trans, but still a Negro; on the contrary, his salary must be increased by 100% to compensate for exactly how his ancestors got to America.

      A fat black man is unlikely to notice such a demarche. He is the official lobbyist for American arms corporations and American energy corporations.
      And, I think, he gets sooooo much money there that he can easily not go for an official salary at all.
