So. Who the hell told them this was a good idea?

WASHINGTON - Despite low approval ratings and hard feelings from last year's elections, Democrats and Republicans in the House are reaching out for an approximately $4,400 pay raise that would increase their salaries to almost $170,000.
Oh my god. What a boneheaded move. Out here in the hinterlands, there is no love lost for our congress critters and this is NOT going to help.
Seemingly stymied at every turn, no major achievements under their belts, they're going to **** up with the one thing that everyone understands.
Keep an eye out for single digit approval numbers coming to a Congress near you.
