Burr: no pay raise for Congress


Sen. Richard Burr has introduced a bill to keep Congress from getting a pay raise next year. Congress blocked its pay raise for 2010, but members will receive an increase in 2011 unless action is taken.

A bill to repeal automatic pay raises altogether has passed the Senate, but the House has taken no action on it. Burr, a Republican from Winston-Salem, says if Democrats won't stop the automatic raises, they should at least stop the next raise.
