Bet you a doughnut that Congress will (uheem) ‘vote’ themselves, and their staff, a pay raise this year. Yeah, I definitely need a raise. Yes. I 'deserve' it by my own estimation.

Gee, I have never had a job in my life that let's me give myself a raise...I never worked in Congress.

Guess I was too busy trying not to get shot...

Man, but really on a serious note...this is just like King of England stuff. We have no say in anything. And these fools and clowns in Washington do not 'represent' us, they freakin' rule us with an iron boot. IMO

Congress will NOT vote themselves a raise. Last I heard they passed a bill years ago that automatically gives them a raise with out a vote. They have to vote to deny themselves a raise.
