From the A.P. via the Washington Post:

Members of Congress are in line for a $3,300 pay raise effective Jan. 1 unless they block it, and Democrats said Thursday they intend to try.

Officials said Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California and Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada, the party’s leaders, had notified Republicans they will try to add the anti-pay-raise provision to a bill that provides funds for most government agencies through Feb. 15.

Reid and Pelosi are standing firm in showing solidarity with every other hard-working blue-collar American who has to make do on $141,300 a year and endless perks, and they won’t accept a penny more! (shady land deals, however, are still fine)
