Senate staffers get raises

From NY1:

The State Senate has given more than 50 staff members raises totaling nearly $500,000, according to data released by the state comptroller's office.

Some staffers got raises of more than $10,000 a year.

All but 10 of the staff members who got raises work for Republicans.

But Republicans say the changes do not qualify as raises since many of their staff members were laid off or forced to take pay cuts when Democrats took control this year.

They all pass laws that exempt themselves, they all expect us to take financial hits while exempting themselves.

And the media talks about Kennedy laying in repose.

How about government in repose?
