I support H.R. 196: To eliminate automatic pay adjustments for Members of Congress, and for other purposes. because I am a federal employee whose pay rate is frozen under your laws. I understand the need to do that, but you all need to contribute as well.

I support H.R. 196: To eliminate automatic pay adjustments for Members of Congress, and for other purposes. because as the American public has seen their ability to bargain for fair wages and pensions erode congress continues to give themselves raises, pensions, and benefits that are far out of the reach of their peers. We the people need to seek a more common ground with our elected officials and our elected officials should seek to be on a more common ground with their constituents .
