Good Government: Congress should vote for pay increase

Feingold and Vitter speak out:
Last month, the Senate finally approved legislation that ends automatic pay increases for members of Congress. This feat could not have been accomplished without the influx of letters and phone calls that came into Congress as public outrage over the pay raises grew into a national discussion on issues that have long angered many people across the country.  The final bill that passed was virtually identical to the legislation that we have been advocating for some time.
