It is not such a bad job being a congressperson, especially when it comes to pay. The current salary for a member of the House of Representatives is around $175,000. There are a number of other little perks that go along with the position as well.But all that money wont last long for people who don’t want to follow the rules. Marjorie Taylor Greene is one of those people. According to a new report, Greene has been fined $48,000 for refusing to wear a mask on the house floor.
Axios’ Andrew Solender reports, “House Sergeant-at-Arms tells Marjorie Taylor Greene she’s been observed violating the House floor mask mandate 21 times since May, accruing 20 fines totaling $48,000. Greene, in a statement, vows to ‘continue my stand on the House floor against authoritarian Democrat mandates.'”

The Republican also discussed vaccine mandates during a recent spot on Steve Bannon’s show. She told the Conservative pundit, “I’m not getting the vaccine because I’m an American. I can choose what I want to do with my body. I have the freedom to decide if I want to get a vaccine or not get a vaccine.”
