Congess, Back and Slightly Worse than Ever

Okay, wait. Let me get this straight.  The government shut down for two weeks and when they returned to work, they gave themselves a raise?  (Well, that certainly makes me glad we didn’t default on our debt loans.)  I wish I could do nothing then just give myself a raise for it [sure, I don’t really work when I’m at work; but I don’t have the power to give myself a raise].

What made Congress think they deserved a raise?  “We avoided defaulting and dropping the USA’s credit score below AAA”…great.  How about we use that money to, oh, I don’t know, repay our debts?

Now, believe me, I’m not against all federal employees getting raises, just those that spend more time not working than working (i.e. Congress).
