    The state is in debt up to it's eyeballs and cities are declaring bankruptcy left and right, and these dinks are handing out PAY RAISES?? The people of California voted these braindeads in, they deserve the consequences.

    HAHAHA I cant wait till they scale back union benefits and then explain this

    A spokesman for Steinberg, Rhys Williams, said the merit increases (LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL) came after several years of pay freezes and reductions in operating expenses in the Legislature. He said the cost of living has risen much faster than legislative pay over the last five years.
    He said it is wrong for opponents of Gov. Jerry Brown's November tax initiative to link the salaries to Democrats who control both houses of the state Legislature.

    AWWWWWW does he, well we shouldnt do it then, who the hell is this moron?
