Congress Gives Themselves a Raise? WTF!?!

Here we are, in the middle of a recession, they economy is a mess, mostly due to their malfeasance, over-regulation, refusal to cut spending, corruption, and in general, allowing the advancement of socialism to continue unabated, and they DARE give themselves a raise?

A crumbling economy, more than 2 million constituents who have lost their jobs this year, and congressional demands of CEOs to work for free did not convince lawmakers to freeze their own pay.

Instead, they will get a $4,700 pay increase, amounting to an additional $2.5 million that taxpayers will spend on congressional salaries, and watchdog groups are not happy about it.

Well, nice to show that in terms of being disgusting, Congress is the gift that keeps on giving.
