Pennsylvania legislators just voted themselves a raise that would make them the second highest paid legislators in the nation. California's law makers get paid $99,000 per year and under this plan, PA legislators will get a measly $81,000.
All this is ironic given the fact that young people often move out of the area into Maryland or Washington DC for education and job opportunities.
PennLive.com reports that "in addition to their salaries, Pennsylvania lawmakers receive fully paid health insurance and a fully paid pension. They receive as much as $7,800 a year for vehicle expenses and those who live more than 50 miles from the Capitol get $129 a day in expenses."
I think its time to get involved politically in Pennsylvania and vote the incumbents out the door!!! Anyone who is interested in signing a petition voicing your opposition to this pay raise go to
