predicted, the bill we worked so hard to pass through the
Senate to end automatic Congressional pay raises remains
sitting in the House of Representative with no action.
week I offered an amendment to the Senate budget resolution
to reflect in the budget that the autopilot raises would
end. It would save more than $22 million in the budget,
which may seem small to Washington politicians when
considered in the massive budget of more than $3 trillion.
But, it reflects the priority that this substantial sum of
taxpayer money should not be supporting automatic raises
for members of Congress. Unfortunately, my amendment was
blocked from consideration.
Americans do not enjoy automatic pay raises, and members of
Congress shouldn’t either. I will keep up the fight to end
these unjust raises.
