"Let them eat cake," Congress says

Please watch this news clip from Fox News. Congress tried to sneak this in over the weekend hoping no one would notice.

Everyone in DC is telling us to cut back, tighten our belts and try to survive the economic crisis. Obama even blasted Wall Street execs for receiving bonuses.

In the midst of all this, Congress gave itself a $93,000 petty cash increase for each Congressman. This is on top of their already-over $100k salary.

Here's the video:

13 days into this Administration and this is what's going on?

If we're in an economic crisis then act like it, Congress!
