27th Amendment Article

The next piece of media I have is an Article that talks about the 27th Amendment and how it has recently been violated by Congress.

Congress Votes Themselves Pay Raise in 2010 - Violates 27th Amendment
Link to Article

Excerpt from article:
"Your hard-earned money is being used to pay those greedy members of congress a salary of $174,000 a year - - - and you also give them a very generous office allowance, a "gold-plated" healthcare plan, a fantastic pension, an extremely liberal expense account, and many other elitist perks. But they typically only work 90 days a year. Wow! What a great job!"

I thought this was very well written article, not only did it grasp my complete attention but it did teach me a thing a two about how Congress has made violations against the Constitution. Just from this excerpt you can see that somehow, some of your money ends up paying Congressmen's 174,000 salary. Not to mention that they only work 90 days out of the year, that is a mere 3 months!

Please take a moment to read the article, it is very insightful.
