Pay Raises of Congress

This Review Journal article claims that Congress found a way to get around the Constitution so that they would keep getting raises.
But it took a lot less than two centuries for Congress to find a way around the measure, needless to say. The delegates simply set up a mechanism under which their regular raises take effect "automatically." Because the senators and representatives don't actually "vote" themselves a raise, they figured no ruckus would be raised by their pay hikes coming along just as regular as Old Faithful.

We need to vote in people who will uphold the Constitution.
