Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

Back in December, Mr. Rogers loudly bemoaned the scheduled 2009 pay hike for members of Congress.  

Mr. Rogers, who regularly touts the values of fiscal conservatism and personal responsibility, was noticeably quiet about his own plans to forego the raise or donate it to charity.  

Guess who publicly said NO to the pay raise yesterday?  (Hint: it wasn't a Republican.) 

Personal fiscal responsibility came to the Hill yesterday in the person of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  Rep. Pelosi formally instructed House Dems that they would have to do without their cost-of-living increases this year. 

Still no word on the official GOP response...
