Congressional pay raises

This is disgusting!

President's executive order gives Congress and the Vice President a raise?!

Salaries for members of the House and Senate will rise to $169,300 from $165,200. Cabinet secretaries will make $191,300, up from $186,600. The vice president's salary will be $221,100, up from $215,700.

Through-the-roof debt and multiple foreign conflicts, and he signs an executive order to raise Congress's and the VP's pay?! I have righteous indignation because my party does not do this! Pretty sure anyway.

Wait, what's that at the top of the article?

President Bush signed an executive order yesterday that provides pay raises this year…


Well, at least then there wasn't this "debt ceiling" problem like there is now!


Party loyalty still blows.
