I view my Government "Representatives" similar to employees. They are being paid to do a job for "my" benefit as well as others in their constituency. They have failed in the performance of their jobs. They are like a factory full of people screwing with each others machines and thereby reducing productive efforts. They Do Not deserve any kind of increase in compensation. Many deserve to be Fired, if we could....nevermind any talk of an increase in compensation. Is this why they let us go...

Is this why they let us go over the proverbial "Cliff"? To Gain more Dollars to spread amongst themselves? It is time We the People stand against this squandering of our dollars for so little in return...if anything at all.

I can't sign this petition as it is written. As a former Federal employee, current employees have been denied cost-of-living raises to several years. The Congress, House and Senate, should NOT get raises. However, the average civil servant SHOULD get the raise.

If a private company or individual can cut pay and belt tighten to deal with economic crisis ...meltdown so can the fatcat feds have their "entitlements" cutoff ...

An annual pay raise for a senator is a year's salary for a farm worker. How will you sleep at night?

Our Reps won't sacrifice but WE ARE TO! Not counting they don't have to follow same laws we do. That should be next petition.

It's my experience that people do not get pay raises unless they've done an outstanding job - so what's up with President Obama giving pay raises out, especially in these dire fiscal circumstances - get real Mr. President!
