This is petition to encourage the Obama Administration to reverse the decision to give members of Congress a pay raise through an Executive Order. This is the least productive Congress since 1947. We should not be rewarding our elected officials with pay raises if they haven't done anything to deserve them. Each member of Congress will be getting $174,900 while many people are out of work and can't pay there bills. Congressman John Barrow supports this action and said “We believe that it is inappropriate for Members of Congress to receive a pay increase of any size while American families and taxpayers continue to face tough economic times." Until there is progress on the many issues facing the American people by Congress they should not be given any pay raises.
