Sigh

Well, my "be nice and stay calm" plan was nice while it lasted.

WASHINGTON — Despite low approval ratings and hard feelings from
last year's elections, Democrats and Republicans in the House are reaching out
for an approximately $4,400 pay raise that would increase their salaries to
almost $170,000.

$4,400. That's more than I get paid in a month. Most Congresscritters are millionares. And according to a website I saw a while ago, most of them became millionares after they were elected to Congress.

I need to go find that reference. Until I do, don't quote me.
