    I'm a Republican, but our entire Congress" SUCKS" GOP is self destructing with no real leadership. Almost everyone would like a whole new crew in Washington, but always except their own Congressman and Senators. They really need a wake-up call. They are all showing this Country only means a paycheck to them.I know I just rambled on but it's we who are invested in our Country that pay the price on their incomitance.

    • ....meanwhile,

      As Americans brace for across-the-board tax hikes, President Obama is giving members of Congress -- and his No. 2 -- a pay raise.

      Obama signed an executive order last week that will lift a ban on pay freezes for federal employees.

      So who benefits? Vice President Biden, for starters. According to disclosure forms, Biden made $225,521 last year. After his raise which goes into effect March 27, 2013, he’ll be taking home $231,900.

      Rank-and-file members of Congress, meanwhile, will see a $900 bump -- up from $174,000. Congressional leaders will receive a slightly higher raise, with the House speaker receiving a $1,100 salary increase to $224,600. The top two Senate leaders will see pay rise $1,000, to $194,400.

      well done!

    • Term Limits would go a long way to fix this problem.
