Petition for Secret Ballot Citizen Voting for Pay Raises sign now

This petition is to tell Congress that no longer will they be able to vote on their own pay raises. Since members of Congress are elected by the American people to speak for them in government, this petition states that henceforth every two years during the Congressonal elections, a pay-raise initiative will be attached to the ballot which will serve as an evaluation of the Congress' overall representation of the people. If the people believe that the performance of Congress warrants a pay raise, they have the option to vote one in. If not they do not have to give a raise to employees for poor performance. This petition calls for these conditions to begin immediately, or at the soonest feasible time.

    I propose to go one step further, and propose that congress can only earn 3 times the minimum wage. Currently that would be around 32k. Perhaps we could give them some incentive and only pay them the AVERAGE wage of ALL workers in the state they represe

    I like it. This is long overdue. These guys would have to live up to their record which they now don't have to. Keep it going.

    If I can't vote myself a raise in pay, you shouldn't be able to either. Members of Congress seem to have lost sight of who is signing their paycheck. Yes, that would be us, the people of the United States. How dare you raise your won pay when the minimum

    This is a disgrace. There is no justice and we want accountablity for a change. We will decide who and when they get a raise. You are elected officials who are doing a marginal job and most of you deserve a layoff notice not a raise. The people want t

    This is a good ideal,maby Congress will listen to their public more.

    A legislators performance record should be evaulated to determine if he merits a raise. Raises will not be granted to the entire Senate or House at one time. Constituents will be the people who decide if the raise is warranted.

    If Congress can't vote millions of people in poverty a pay raise, they have no right voting on their own salaries. They are employees of the American people, with salaries paid for by the American people, and should be evaluated by them.

    A raise in the minimum wage is years past due. We are NOT a third world country. Every American deserves a livable wage!

    I feel so sorry for the Senators and Congress because they are SO POOR! With all the perks they get, they should be satisfied!! If this petition drive get 500,000 signatures, maybe MAIN STREAM MEDIA will report it. The American people SHOULD DO SOMETHING

    My pay has declined by 50% over the last 20 years, while inflation has devalued our currency by an even larger percentage. Why should Congress keep getting raises?

    Pay raises for Congressmen/women should be decided by the voters.
