Give Yourself A Raise!

You know what America? You've worked hard, really hard, so in these uncertain times just give yourself a raise!

House Defeats Bid to Block $3,100 Pay Raise

The House agreed to a $3,100 pay raise for Congress next year — to $165,200 — after defeating an effort to roll it back.

In a 263-152 vote, the House blocked a bid by Rep. Jim Matheson (D-Utah) to force an up-or-down vote on the raise. Instead, lawmakers will automatically receive the raise — officially a cost-of-living adjustment.

"Now is not the time for members of Congress to be voting themselves a pay raise. We need to be willing to make sacrifices," Matheson said.
Um, apparently only getting a $3,100 raise as was much of a sacrifice as 263 of them were willing to make.

When was the last time you got a raise?
