Say What? That's right the most "ethical" congress in history voted itself a payhike today. I am looking for the roll call and I will post it when it when I find it.
Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., and Minority Whip Roy Blunt, R-Mo., worked the floor during the vote to make sure there was relative balance between the warring parties in delivering votes. Working through Blunt, Hoyer forced more than a dozen Republicans to switch their votes in support of accepting the raise, including Mike Pence and Daniel Burton of Indiana and Fred Upton, Dave Camp and Vernon Ehlers of Michigan.
Pence did what? Hoyer and Blunt working in tandem, what in the WORLD was going on in the House today?!?!!? I mean holy insanity! The article is a must read though extremely depressing.
Roll call is apparently here but it wasn't a straight up or down on the payraise but a vote about voting on itů
