Lede; Congressional Pay Raises

Rep. Betsy Markey, D-Fort Collins, is co-sponsoring a resolution that would block an automatic pay raise for Congress in 2011.

"With unemployment high and so many Colorado families struggling to make ends meet, it is unconscionable to think that Congress is considering giving itself a pay raise," Markey said in a prepared statement. "Our country is in the middle of an economic crisis, and our elected leaders need to do the right thing."
