‘Resign!’: Marjorie Taylor Greene Ridiculed For Saying Job Makes Her ‘Miserable’ And Salary Is ‘Too Low’

Far-right US representative Marjorie Taylor Greene is facing ridicule after complaining that her elected position’s salary is “too low”.

The Georgia Republican expressed her dissatisfaction with her congressional salary —which according to public records is $174,000 annually— during an interview on journalist Glenn Greenwald’s podcast.

“Becoming a member of Congress has made my life miserable. I made a lot more money before I got here. I’ve lost money since I’ve gotten here,” Greene told Greenwald.

“It’s not a life that I think is like something that I enjoy because I don’t enjoy it,” added the QAnon evangelist, who had previously owned a CrossFit affiliate gym in Georgia before being elected to Congress in 2020.

Greene also complained about the amount of time her congressional work consumes.

“The nature of this job, it keeps members of Congress and senators in Washington so much of the time, too much of the time … that we don’t get to go home and spend more time with our families, our friends … or maybe just be regular people because this job is so demanding. It’s turned into practically year-round.”

“For those of us in the House of Representatives, we have to run for Congress every two years,” she continued. “So you’re practically campaigning nearly the entire time that you’re here serving as a representative.”

Greene’s comments triggered an avalanche of mockery.

“Really? Being in Congress isn’t supposed to be about money. And I guarantee you make more per year than most of your constituents,” one Twitter user wrote. “If you don’t like the life and job, stop running for office.”

“Feel free to step aside if it isn’t too cushy of a job for you @RepMTG. Millions of us won’t mind. #stopwhining,” someone else tweeted.

Another user added: “Griping Greene you don’t get to serve the Constitution and its people expecting to profit. Get a part time job or better yet, just quit.”
