Yes, because even a one-term congressman gets a benefit package to take home as a parting gift. Nice to be able to vote on your own pay & benefits, aint it?

Back about ‘86 they decided it was unseemly (even for them) to vote pay raises for themselves so they made pay raises automatic.
The downside to that was they were sort of ‘locked-in.’
The recent sucking, pulling noises made by certain congress critters is because they don’t feel the automatic pay raises to be enough and they want them jacked even higher.
