bill calls for end to automatic congressional pay raises
(Sunshine State News) – U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., teamed up with U.S. Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., to propose major changes to the federal political system including a line item veto for the president, term limits in Congress and requiring a super-majority in Congress to raise taxes.
Scott and Braun showcased their “Make Washington Work” plan on Tuesday. Besides the amendments, Scott and Braun unveiled a bill to end automatic congressional pay raises.
As he explained why he was championing these proposals, including supporting amending the U.S. Constitution, Scott pointed to his career in the private sector and contrasted with his short tenure on Capitol Hill.
“I spent my entire career in business. I often bought failing companies and turned them around. The U.S. government is like a failing business right now. We need change,” Scott said.
