Republicans Stop Congressional Pay Hike Bill

“There will be no paty adjustment,” said a disappointed Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the House’s No. 2 Democrat, on Tuesday.

Check in your newspaper tomorrow for the spin to save face for Nancy Pelosi and the new Democrat majority.

Congress’ pay will be frozen at $165,200 for this year in the dispute.

A huge spending bill for the current budget year is moving through the House on Wednesday, and Democrats tried in recent days to reach agreement with Republicans on language to delay the pay raise a few more weeks or months to provide more time for the minimum wage bill to advance into law.

Republicans said ‘no.’

So Nancy Pelosi didn’t get everything through in her first 100 hours.

  1. I wish I could vote myself a raise every year. I guess $165 grand doesn’t buy what it used to. Since they work for us (at least that’s what we are led to believe) shouldn’t the voters decide if and when they deserve a raise? Food for thought.
