    The pricks haven't done anything. Ar least show the smarts to let the Democrats bury themselves by voting for it.

    The funny part about the argument over pay raises is that from the outside looking in it's easy to be outraged, but would you vote to give yourself a pay raise? Fuck yeah I would. I haven't done shit to deserve it, but your're really asking me if I should get more money? :lol:

    They should not make more than $50,000 a year.

    Didn't they get a pay raise just last year? I would definitely vote against anyone who votes themselves a pay raise!

    I am correcting myself. They haven't had a recent pay raise....and still don't deserve one this year.

    They don't have to vote to give themselves a pay raise. All they have to do is do nothing and they get that pay raise. They have to vote to NOT get a pay raise. They have voted to not take a pay raise every year since 2009.

    Agree or disagree, just thought I would put things right.

    Then we need to change the rules so WE vote to approve Congressional pay raises. Put it on the ballot in November, list each Rep and Sen with a 'yes' or 'no' vote for a raise for each.
