Democrats and Republicans in the House have found something they can agree on: $4,400 pay raises!
That'd bring a Congressman's salary to around $170,000 a year.
Representatives endorsed the "cost of living" raise Wednesday on a 244-181 vote. The vote killed a bid by Reps Jim Matheson, (D-UT) and Lee Terry, (R-NE) to kill the automatic raise.
Congress members get a pay raise annually unless they vote to block it. (MyWay)
