Well since at the moment we have no way to stop the congressional raises, some representatives are doing something that I am okay with until we get the chance to change the whole absurd Automatic pay raise.

US Rep. Barrett to give pay raise to SC charity

COLUMBIA, S.C. — U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett says he is donating his new congressional raise to an Anderson charity.

Barrett says he will donate the $4,700 salary increase that begins in 2009 to Anderson Interfaith Ministries – an organization of churches and individuals who provide assistance to the needy and helps them become self-sufficient.

Barrett says lawmakers should not be earning more during these poor economic times. He says he voted against the automatic pay raise and all increases should have to be voted on individually.

Barrett is beginning his fourth term in Congress. The Republican’s district runs along the Savannah River in the northwestern corner of South Carolina.
