Damn, must be nice to be able to vote on your own raises. Hell, Congress even has it set up now where they don't have to vote for a raise, it just happens! Geez.

Not a shabby salary either, especially with all the perks they get.

No one goes to Congress for the pay.

It's the POWER.

Okay.. I'm not a big fan of Congress at the moment and all.. but they got COST OF LIVING increases.. Yes, I understand their salary is on the high side, BUT if my company didn't give me at least cost of living as a raise, then I'd be pissed off. I certainly don't blame them for getting CoL.

Geez I'm sorry but if you cant live on 150K a year you need to re-examine your spending. CoL for the average Joe, yeah give it to him, government employee, sure them as well. Posh living, $hit tossing, money wasting politicians? No. An emphatic hell no.
They should be ashamed of themselves.

I'm a state govt. worker and our cost of living raises were eliminated about 8 years ago. Yes, congress is way over paid. Be a congressman for 1 term and your set for life. mad
