We the people do not believe that you have been doing your job.  

We the people do not feel you deserve to vote on your own pay raise.

We the people are not satisfied by your level of commitment to the jobs you were elected to.  

We the people think it is bad enough that you get special treatment, special insurance, unlimited terms with unlimited pay potential when the bulk of the United States Citzens are lossing jobs, losing homes, losing their retirements, or haven't received a raise in YEARS. 

We the people KNOW you are UNCONNECTED from the populous.  

We the people KNOW you do not care for what is best for the people of the United States of America.  

We the people know this by the laws you have passed, the racheted up military-police state you have replaced our god given rights with.

We the people are tired of the endless wars, the increase in taxes, the bankrupting of OUR nation.. this nation is not YOURS to do what you want with.. it is OUR nation!

We the people do not believe you (each of you) are worthy of, or have actually worked for the current pay you receive.. let alone a pay INCREASE from the previous year.

We the people are signing this petition to let you know we do not agree to a pay increase for the "work" you have done or are doing.  The United States is in SERIOUS trouble and all you care about is yourself.

You do not deserve it.

Here is a bill that has been introduced to block pay raise for congress for 2012.  They NEED to hear our voices about this.. and our support for this cause!

.. CAUSE I don't remember the last time I got a raise!  How about you?!

 

Let them hear your voice!  

 

Sign THIS Petition!

 

We, the PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES of AMERICA have spoken!!!

To:
The current standing United States Congress 2012, The United States Congress 2012
We the people do not feel you deserve a pay raise.

We the people do not believe that you have been doing your job, We the people do not feel you deserve to vote on your own pay raise. We the people are not satisfied by your level of commitment to your actual jobs. We the people have spoken.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      'Fiscal cliff' deal to block pay hike for Congress

      WASHINGTON (AP) - Legislation to prevent the government from going over the so-called fiscal cliff will also block a $900 automatic pay hike for members of Congress. It's one more reason for lawmakers to vote for the measure extending Bush-era tax cuts on individual income up to $450,000 while increasing rates for earnings above that threshold.

      Last-minute 'Fiscal cliff' deal outlines emerging

      With just hours left to avoid the "fiscal cliff," the White House and Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell have agreed to extend Bush-era tax rate cuts on income below $400,000 per person and $450,000 per household, a senior GOP official confirmed Monday. News of the tentative deal emerged shortly before President Barack Obama planned [...]

      A great article.

      welcome to vixieFrenzy.com: a cup of soul...

      Reading this post, you agree that you understand the meaning of 'sarcastic'. This drama with the fiscal cliff, of course, is not Obama's doing. A Nobel Prize winner would never hold the country ransom to a political agenda. Obama is a man you can TRUST.

      Are you going to accept this?

      Why Americans will really, really hate Congress in 2013

      The incoming 113th Congress is likely to face the wrath of an irate electorate in a few days, as the current Congress apparently has dropped the ball on New Year's Eve fiscal cliff negotiations.

      Awesome. Which will mean that they will pass something so outrageously horrid in the last few seconds to say they "did their job"..

      This is not what our "REPRESENTATION" is supposed to do. I know it is not easy, but all they are doing is spending and borrowing more.. and expanding the government..

      NOT SUSTAINABLE!!!

      Fiscal deal stalls as clock ticks to deadline

      WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Efforts to prevent the economy from tumbling over a "fiscal cliff" stalled on Sunday as Democrats and Republicans remained at loggerheads over a deal that would prevent taxes for all Americans from rising on New Year's Day.

      Federal workers and Biden also.. where is this money coming from???

      Don't get me started about his recent vacation to Hawaii...

      Obama Orders Pay Raise for Biden, Members of Congress, Federal Workers

      President Barack Obama issued an executive order to end the pay freeze on federal employees, in effect giving some federal workers a raise. One federal worker now to receive a pay increase is Vice President Joe Biden. According to disclosure forms, Biden made a cool $225,521 last year.

      I am absolutely OUTRAGED by the frivolous spending by our government when so many in this nation are barely surviving. I cannot even begin to express my profound outrage over the spending by our own Pres. and his family on their numerous extravagant spending... now, they're going to spend $60-$100 MILLION TAXPAYER DOLLARS to go on their vacation to Africa!!! THIS HAS GOT TO STOP IMMEDIATELY!!!

      I can barley pay my bills. They cannot even balance the budget. Why should they get a pay raise when I have lost my medical and half my hours this year.

      Because I don't feel congress is doing its job representing the American people. While they're sitting by being pig-headed we the people are the ones suffering.
