Keep your guns. This is the sort of crap we americans will eventually get pissed off enough about to revolt. Them getting a raise is nonsense.

Every two years you have the opportunity to throw the bums out.

Every two years we elect the same people.

We get what we voted for.

Well no, lol, it's the answer.

Unless and until people stop putting back in the same guys who screwed us over last time, we're gonna get screwed again.

Rush Holt is my congressman, and I didn't vote to put him back in office. 

I was outvoted and he's there again.
