The Government works for the people. We are their employers. Have you ever heard of an employee deciding his pay rate? We have a Government that gives it self a raise when this country is $16 trillion in debt and many citizens have lost their jobs or had their pay cut. This is a Big slap in our face. We need to cut their salary and pension till they do their job and get our country back on solid ground. The people of USA should vote if Senate and House want a raise.
