Dem Representative Moves to Block Obama’s Congressional Pay Increase

A Democratic member of Congress is moving to block President Barack Obama’s congressional pay increase. The move, led by John Barrow of Georgia, is to prevent the pay increase that Obama issued through an executive order from going into effect.

“At a time when American families face real hardship, it would be irresponsible to allow Congressional pay to increase,” says Barrow in a statement. “Too many families face uncertainty in the New Year for Congress to get a bonus. Folks expect us to be looking out for them, not ourselves, and we should be working to lower taxes, cut spending, and get our nation’s debt under control. Congress should get to work, and I urge the House leadership to do anything and everything possible to stop this pay increase for Members of Congress right away.”

Barrow’s office explains: “The Executive Order called for a pay increase for Members of Congress and other elected officials of 0.5 percent after March 27, 2013. During tonight’s votes, Congressman Barrow will urge his colleagues to sign his letter to House Leadership urging them to bring legislation to the floor to block the pay increase.”

Here’s the letter Barrow is circulating to send to House leadership:

Dear Speaker Boehner, Leader Cantor, Leader Pelosi, Whip Hoyer,

We oppose the pay increase for Members of Congress granted by Executive Order on December 27, 2012. The Executive Order would raise our salaries by $900 per year, beginning March 27, 2013.

We believe that it is inappropriate for Members of Congress to receive a pay increase of any size while American families and taxpayers continue to face tough economic times.

We urge you to bring legislation to the floor to stop this pay adjustment as soon as possible.

    More telegraphing by Drudge?

    We are reading about the “fiscal Cliff” theatrics at one level.

    At another, the Electoral College reality is the deeper message perhaps:

    Uncertain future in GOP-controlled House…

    The federal government is simply incapable of cutting spending, while simultaneously accepting a raise. The People struggle daily to cut and save while the federal government continues out-of-control tax-dollar funded pork barrel spending. Actor Matt Damon is right: No matter how hard we try, nothing changes.

    This is a HUGH conflict of interest in Mr. Obama’s decision for Congressional pay increase because of his demand to increase our taxes in order to reduce the deficit. Why did he want to increase the Congress’s salary while ignoring the unemployed Americans suffering?

    Those Barrows always did have a pair. The rest of those Congressmen should take a long look around and grow a pair. They have NO excuse for not getting Obama out of the White House that would resonate with the idea they are working for the American public. These people need to be cleaned out if this is the best they offer.

    That is outrageous! Those of us on Social Security got a 1.7% raise and a 5% increase in our Medicare payment. We paid into that at gun point our whole lives. Screw CONgress!
