Senate abusing there power abit?
    #1609712 - 06/05/03 01:03 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

I just found out (I believe its old news) that senate put in the constitution that they could give themselves a raise. This sound alittle fucked up? Theres not really a way to change it since to get rid of it now senate would have to vote to get rid of it which wont happen, hey I'd like to give myself raises to.

Did they also make federal holidays on mondays instead of friday since they already have friday off?

This is VERY VERY old news. They don't go too hog wild because they wanna get re-elected. They get money from gray areas no one really sees.

I believe it was actually an ammendment saying that any raise they vote on for themselves could not be implemented until their next term. It's designed to reduce corruption(not that it really helped, tho).
