Recently, Congressman Parker Griffith voted for legislation that would prohibit Members of Congress from receiving a pay raise for fiscal year 2011.

"Even as Washington, D.C. spending has gone through the roof, the Majority Party continues to find new ways to tax Americans. In addition, Congress is passing legislation that is putting the U.S. into even greater debt. Congress cannot pile up outrageous debt, bankrupt our children, and then give themselves a raise," said Griffith.
Griffith joined with his House Republican colleagues in votin for the measure, H.R. 5146.

Congress rejected the pay raise by a vote of 402-15.
