CAGW: No Congressional Staff Pay Raise!

Citizens Against Government Waste is opposing cost-of-living raises for Congressional staffers, saying “Heavy reliance on congressional staffers allows members of Congress to abdicate their responsibility to read and write the legislation they vote on.”

CAGW says some Senators today have nearly 100 staffers — yet, the Senate did entirely without publicly-funded staffers until 1884.
