How Virginia's Congressmen Voted ON GIVING FEDERAL EMPLOYEES A 30 BILLION $$ RAISE

from Eric Cantors website..

As part of his FY 2011 Budget submission President proposed raising federal civilian pay by 1.4% beginning in January of next year. This will be on top of the 2.0% raise federal civilian employees received this past January, the 3.9% raise they received the previous January, and the 3.5% raise they received the January before that. Freezing federal civilian pay at the current level for one year would save approximately $2 billion next year and $30 billion over ten years.

The Up-Or-Down Vote On This Cut

Each week, the public votes on one of five wasteful spending items, then the House votes on the item chosen by the people. You told Washington where you stood, here is how your Representatives in Washington stood.

Rep. Rick Boucher
Virginia - 9

Rep. Gerald E. "Gerry" Connolly (D)
Virginia - 11

Rep. Jim Moran (D)
Virginia - 8

Rep. Tom Perriello (D)
Virginia - 5

Rep. Robert C. "Bobby" Scott (D)
Virginia - 3

Rep. Frank Wolf (R)
