I See Nothing Wrong With This

Democrats Plan to Cancel Congressional Pay Raise
Members of Congress are in line for a $3,300 pay raise effective Jan. 1 unless they block it, and Democrats said Thursday they intend to try.

Officials said Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California and Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, the party's leaders, had notified Republicans they will try to add the anti-pay-raise provision to a bill that provides funds for most government agencies through Feb. 15.

Congress must pass the funding bill before it adjourns for the year, and the target for that is Friday.
I don't care if it is blatant electioneering or politicking. They are doing the right thing. Hell! A pay cut would be more to my liking!

Our federal politicians gave themselves another pay increase about two months or so ago...tremendous!

I'm thinking I should enter increases are guaranteed...without ever having to ask for them!
