PostSubject: With economy in shambles, Congress gets a raise   Fri Dec 19, 2008 12:20 pm

A crumbling economy, more than 2 million constituents who have lost their jobs this year, and congressional demands of CEOs to work for free did not convince lawmakers to freeze their own pay.

Instead, they will get a $4,700 pay increase, amounting to an additional $2.5 million that taxpayers will spend on congressional salaries, and watchdog groups are not happy about it.

Well... I guess they probably need it...

I sure wish I could get a raise... along with the rest of us hard working Americans... but I guess I'll just have to be happy with helping out with their raises instead with my tax dollars.

Nice! It would not be so bad it they where working for the people not working against the people! And not stealing our money to give to ceo's with big cash awards. Stop this insane war, and stop the war on the middle class. Work on getting people jobs, and health care.
