Congressional lawmakers "will get a $4,700 pay increase, amounting to an additional $2.5 million that taxpayers will spend on congressional salaries..."
A little history for you:
In 1789 Congress was paid only $6 a day.
In 1965 members were receiving $30,000 a year.
Currently the average lawmaker makes $169,300 a year, with leadership making slightly more.
Anyone else want to barf over the hypocrisy in all of this?
