In repsonse to tough times, Congress is stimulating itself:

We all need to sacrifice.
Well, everyone but those lucky enough to be a member of the Pelosi-Reid Congress.

They gave themselves a raise last month.
They now make $174,000 a year for their 3 day work week.

The US may be in recession, but like the president, the members of Congress won't feel the pinch this year.

The Pelosi-Reid Congress also gave each lawmaker an extra $93,000 in petty cash to spend this year.

And now they just gave themselves an 11% increase in spending.
