No. Raises should be based on performance. And we should be the ones reviewing said performance. No way they're performing as a whole. There are some few standouts. But they can't get work done and voted on by themselves. Furthermore, these offices were never meant to be careers with all the perks that careers offer. They get reduced health insurance premiums for better coverage than the rest of us. They get a pension for life!!! After one term. No one else has a pension. We have. A 401K with a very small match by our employer. Or an IRA with no contributions by anyone but ourselves. I want term limits reasonable benefits that they cost share. No pensions. 401K like the rest of us. 3% match by we the taxpayers. Two terms max.
