  •  There is actually a constitutional amendment (0+ / 0-)

    They can't raise their own pay, they can only raise the pay for the next Congress (so if they don't win re-election, they get nada).

    •  Actually it is just the opposite (0+ / 0-)

      They have to vote to block their automatic pay increases. I looked and they did vote them down for the past three years.

      Next we should demand they give up all their health benefits since they are only part-time employees. I know of no other employer that gives such health benefits to part- time employees. Most get nothing. If they don't work 40hrs/wk, Congress should have to pick 100% of the cost for that week.
