Why do elected officials give themselves raises?

March 16, 2013

Editor:

After seeing the news and reading the paper, why is it that when things get tough, our elected officials and others in government have to get raises and increases in benefits?

Yet the common worker who bears the brunt of this has to live and pay bills, buy food and gas and raise their family on what they continue to make.

They have to do this and support the government and these increases because the majority of our legislators vote in favor of these increases.

People, when is this going to be enough? The people cannot continue to bear the burden and live and pay their bills and raise their families.
