No Salary Increase for Congress in FY 2011
[Update: The petition entitled: "No Automatic Pay Raise for Congress!" is gathering signatures.]
But the law still gives them an automatic raise if they don’t refuse it. Who among us wouldn’t like to have that sweet deal? Who among us wants to pay for it?
In Washington, D.C., the annual budgeting process is about to get started again. And we’ve seen at least one bill to stop the automatic pay increase.
It’s H.R. 4255, the Stop the Automatic Pay Raise for Members of Congress in Fiscal Year 2011 Act. (Well named, eh?)
As before, there will probably be a lot of such bills, and we’ll collect them here. What do you think of Congress getting a raise in fiscal year 2011? What do you think about Congress getting automatic raises in general?
