Self absorbed and ignoring "We the people"!

Why should they get a pay increase when we are broke and THEY are NOT doing their job! In the REAL World, they would not only NOT be getting a pay raise, they would be...FIRED! They are WAY over paid and should SET the example and TAKE a pay CUT and STOP all their PERKS!
EACH OF US HAVE AND WILL SHALL DO THEIR PART. CAN SEE NO WAY WHY WE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAN ALLOW YOU TO GO FORWARD WITH THIS AT THIS MOST IMPORTANT TIME IN HISTORY. I SIGN FOR I DISAGREE SO ACCEPT THE FACT YOU ARE IN FOR THE LONG HALL YOURSELF AS WELL.
Why would those who have created our current economic crisis (Fannie-Freddie were intentionally protected from additional regulation by lying testimonies and the national debt is increasing) receive a pay raise or additional benefits.
What do they want a raise for, sitting on their donkeys! I had to work for my raise and still didn't get it half the time!
what federal pay raise? my husband is a blue collar federal worker, and has not had one for years. white collar workers get step raises, and when they get a raise, they get it in January. My husband gets his in spring, back dated. The white collar workers work from home, some as much as 3 days a week. My blue collar husband still has to drive......the blue collar average joes get screwed, not the IT guys making 150 k a year and working from home. get your facts straight please.
What in God's name makes them think they deserve a raise? I bet Obummer bribed them in order to meet the Fiscal Cliff deadline. They are all a bunch of self serving crooks!
this is and issue that needs too address.. congressmen and women don't need a pay raise why they haven't done a damn thing that goes for the senate too cabinet and president! cut there pay 75% and see what happends they will either quit, get something done, or commit suicide one because they cant afford there million dollor spending habits!
