Congress Gives Itself a Raise

What else would Congress do ? If they ever did anything usefull it would be amazing. You think they would do anything that made any sense.........Hell No !

WASHINGTON (June 13) -

Despite record low approval ratings, House lawmakers Tuesday embraced a $3,300 pay raise that will increase their salaries to $168,500.

The 2 percent cost-of-living raise would be the seventh straight for members of the House and Senate.

Like last year, Matheson led a quixotic drive to block the raise. He was the only member to speak on the topic. "I do not think that it is appropriate to let this bill go through without an up or down vote on whether or not Congress should have an increase in its own pay," Matheson said.
