Republican Sean Duffy whines that $174K a year is hard for his family to survive on.

Republican Sean Duffy

Waaaah! Life is too hard on only $174K a year!

The following video clip has to be seen to be believed, and if the GOP manages to get its way you won’t have very long to see it:

Awwww, poor baby. I wish I had that kind of a problem.

The folks over at TPM posted the above clip after the Polk County GOP yanked the video from their own website when it became apparent it wasn’t going over well with the general public. It wasn’t soon before the GOP got that one yanked as well by filing a DMCA request with the video host TPM was using. Now they’ve got it back up, but who knows for how long so let’s include a transcript of what Mr. Duffy had to say after being told by a constituent that Duffy’s salary was easily three times his own:

I can guarantee you, or most of you, I guarantee that I have more debt than all of you. With 6 kids, I still pay off my student loans. I still pay my mortgage. I drive a used minivan. If you think I’m living high on the hog, I’ve got one paycheck. So I struggle to meet my bills right now. Would it be easier for me if I get more paychecks? Maybe, but at this point I’m not living high on the hog.

A used minivan? OH THE HORROR!

If I was making that kind of money I’d have every debt that Anne and I have paid off within 6 months and I’m quite sure I could live quite comfortably on that amount even if I had 6 kids. Alas, they don’t pay that kind of money to a mere Desktop Support Technician. Hell, I’d be happy to get back to the 54K a year I was earning a few years back. Ironically, Sean Duffy is a former cast member of MTV’s Real World show. Which just illustrates how there isn’t anything real about it.

Updated: The flash player from TPM wasn’t working too well, so I’ve replaced it with a copy of the video from You Tube uploaded by YouTellEmSteveDave.

  1. The only way that kind of money is insufficient is if the person is deranged. Something is missing in that little quote of woe-is-me.

    “Oh, and I lose about $10,000 a month playing the ponies.”

    “I drive a used minivan and, of course, my wife and all six children each have a their own vehicle.”

    “Of course, all that stress has to be relieved by packing the entire family off to Hawaii for a month every year.”

    Some feature of his life that this bozo believes is the Natural Order of Things. Trying to tell him that these things are luxuries and could be eliminated would meet with dumb incomprehension.
