Wish they’d done it for better reasons, but the Republicans did block a Congressional pay hike this week.
On the other hand, to be fair, at $165,000/yr., Congressmen and Senators really aren’t paid all that much when you consider they have to maintain homes in both Washington, D.C. and their home states; and that this makes running for Congress a rich man’s game, cutting out the little guy who might really represent real Americans.
So maybe the Republicans did this for the right reason after all, namely, paying back the Dems for breaking their word on the deal described in the linked story. And I gotta say, it’s about time our guys exacted a price for leftist duplicity, even if it won’t cost millionaires like Kennedy and Pelosi squat.
