These people were elected to serve. It seems all they want to do is serve themselves.


Reid offered legislation last week that would raise Salazar’s salary by $19,600 so that it is comparable with other Cabinet officials’. Since Salazar voted to raise the Interior secretary’s salary during his time as a senator, he was obligated under a clause in the Constitution to accept the pre-raise pay level when he left the Senate to take over as head of the department.
He became eligible for the higher pay level in January, when his Senate term would have come to an end. Salazar currently makes $180,100 a year.
Vitter, in a letter to Salazar on Monday, said he would block a unanimous-consent agreement on the bill until the Interior Department issues six permits for new deepwater exploratory wells in the Gulf of Mexico every month. “Given the completely unsatisfactory pace of your department’s issuance of new deepwater exploratory permits in the Gulf, I cannot possibly give my assent,” Vitter said in the letter to Salazar on Monday.

Yep, that's what it is. A bribe. Unfortunately that's the only way they can get anything done in DC.
