    For doing such a great job President Obama has issued a executive order giving pay raises to Congress so let's see some people maybe all of us are about to have our taxes go up to in part give a raise to the people who are responsible for this mess how disgusting is that? Funny how the President and the left want to keep talking about shared sacrifice yet Congresses sacrifices nothing and in fact get's a raise.

    And still more than they deserve you perform your job in the private sector the way they do in Congress you would be taking a pay cut or be out of a job.

    It lifted all fed workers pay freeze and just happened to include Congress. Unfortunate they are included, but everyone else shouldn't have to keep suffering.

    The only people who should be getting raises are active duty service members who are serving their country while Commander-In-Chump is golfing in Hawaii and Nancy Pelosi is having Botox injections over the holidays

    Fucking pathetic.

    The military absolutely LOATHES these fucking assholes

    I'd like to pour a ring of gasoline around the Beltway and light a match to it. I am sick of all of them. All those Mo'fo's need to be fired.

    No pay increase in three years would hurt any middle class family.
