Yup, you read it right. Congress approved $4,700 in a pay increase which amounts to about $2.5 million in additional tax payer money. I don't know about you but that really pisses me off!! In the midst of doing this for themselves they were in middle of forcing auto executives to accept only $1 a year in salary!! Are you kidding me! I agree that auto executives need to tone it down but why should they when Congress is raiding the vault for themselves? Then the whole issue of workers taking a pay cut to keep things rolling and keep their jobs. Something is very wrong with this picture!! I'm just sick and tired of these so called "I'm for the little people" jerks. What do you think??
