Interestingly I support the pay raise for Congress as although they make more money than many of us it’s simply not enough for what they do even when I don’t like what they are doing. Also, and most importantly to me I believe their pay raises are tied to those of federal workers and as a former civil servant myself I know they can use the money. Also, it would help if we didn’t believe all the propaganda about Congressional pensions after one term and other such nonsense. We should be pleased to pay good salaries to people who do the people’s business. One man’s opinion I realize.
