Congress Gives Itself Double-Digit Raise, While Americans Struggle to Make Ends Meet

Sharing is Caring!

Amid economic turmoil for the American people, their representatives in Washington gave their offices a double-digit raise this month even as the average American worker finds their real wages decreasing due to inflation that outpaces wages at new.

If you missed Congress giving itself a little pat on the back, that’s understandable — members aren’t likely to tout outside the beltway how they’re filling their own office coffers, plus the funding increase for congressional offices was just one part of the 2,700+ page omnibus bill that funded the U.S. government to the tune of some $1.5 trillion.

As RollCall explains, “the $5.9 billion fiscal 2022 Legislative Branch funding portion would substantially boost the office budgets of House members” and “would provide $774.4 million for the Members Representational Allowance, known as the MRA, which funds the House office budgets for lawmakers, including staffer salaries.”
