    Fifth straight year!? They making this a f*cking tradition or something?? Come on, a cost of living increase when you make $150,000 is the biggest load of crock.



  • Me mum will get a 2.1% increase in her Social Security checks for 2004.
    Maybe they are confused.

    Do you know how much it costs to live around Washington, D. C.!??!
    A buck’n a half don’t go as far as it usta.

    Check how your US Representative voted
    on his raise before you reeelect him/her!!

  • It seems to me that it’s not necessarily the best idea to let people decide their own salaries.

    I believe the Congressmen also have subsidies for living, food, and other basic expenses. Not to mention the “other” ways they have of making money.



  • Wait a second. Most of the senators in Congress are millionaries anyways, what would they need with a pay-increase?



  • I completely agree.]]

    Pulling “tricks!”
    :oops:
    Those ‘whores!’
    :lol:

    Howzabout we make them pay us so they may be servants of the peeps??

    Anyway, I think it was the Reps who got the raise mentioned. I don’t know what the Sins are earning.

    But remember, even a rich guy needs to earn a living.
    Ask Sen. John F. Kerry…

    Good idea. I get 50 percent, plus a commission of 10 percent on future earnings. 😛
