The Gift That Keeps On Giving...To Itself

Those good ol' boys in the Grotesque Old Party are trying to vote themselves one last raise before they lose control. $3,300. Admittedly, it's not much in comparison with the trillions upon trillions of dollars in debt they've approved for "Defense" or bridges to nowhere, and it is the holiday season. $3,300, coincidentally, is just enough for a primo flat-screen TV and home entertainment system. But why stop there? Hell, why not give themselves $20k? Or $50k? What's with the restraint? Come on, you guys can do better than a few thousand! Even the Dims think it's unseemly, and are holding out for more.
