Minimum Wage

This past week, while the rest of us were hard at work, the Congress took time out of its "busy" schedule to do two things:
Failed to raise the minimum wage from 5.15 per hour
Voted to give themselves a generous pay raise of $3100*
Am I the only one who sees a disconnect here?

*Congress has it set up so that they don't actually have to vote for a pay raise for themselves. That would look bad on TV. Instead, there is a commission that recommends what the cost of living increase should be, and then they have to vote for or against NOT implementing that allowance. So voting "NO" means approving the increase.

Of course, we can't expect moral - or any oher sort - of clarity from this bunch.
