    US Rep Michael Arcuri (D-NY) has authored "The Congressional Belt tightening Act of 2010". Under this proposal all congressman would have a 5% pay cut, which amounts to $8,700 from their current salary of $174,000. In addition, his bill would require a permanent up-or-down vote on all further salary increases. Currently, an annual pay raise is automatic, unless voted down by Congress.
