    Congress definitely should have frozen their pay. It not like they have to live paycheck to paycheck like their constituents.

    ==We, the American people, have only ourselves to blame for this. We keep electing the same crooks and liars to go to Washington and represent us. Then we are surprised when nothing changes. This means that we, the American people, are either very stupid or very few of us actually care. Either way we have allowed the servants to become the ruling aristocracy. Thomas Jefferson must be turning in his grave.

    You are right, every congressman to be replaced, execpt our own of course.

    Dont you just love the way they get the pay raise - it is automatic unless they vote it down.

    ==I wish I could do that :laugh: .

    What I find endless sad is that these people voting themselves regular pay raises argue about CEOs who do the same thing. I guess hypocrisy rules in D.C.?
