Congressional Annual Merit Pay Increases



Would it not be ever so sweet for TAXPAYERS to have the power to VOTE pay raises for Congress?  No COLA for Congress, no voting themselves pay raises, the TAXPAYERS get to decide if they have earned their keep.  HEH!  It sounds like fun.

When ELECTION TIME rolls around, NOBODY is forced to vote and we seem to get the same old sad lot of career politicians in office.  TAX TIME is another story; participation for the majority of U.S. citizens is not optional and the folks who don’t file their returns face criminal charges.  Since we ALL are familiar with federal tax forms, it would not be much of a burden to have just one more page, or maybe even just another block on an existing page, for us to mark our vote for binding Congressional pay increases.  By golly, I bet that people of the U.S.A. would start looking forward to tax time and that the IRS would have noticeably fewer missing returns to chase down.
