So the congresscritters deserve a raise, but people making minimum wage don't. Interesting. They won't even let the minimum wage amendment get to the floor for a vote. It's been TEN YEARS since the federal government raised the minimum wage. A full time worker on minimum wage makes about 10K a year. Way less than poverty level for a one child family.

So congress has given itself about $40,000 in raises over that same period of time. What's wrong with this picture, family values voters?
