Portman Calls On President Obama To Rescind Executive Order Increasing Congressional Pay


Washington, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) released the following statement on President Obama’s Executive Order increasing salaries of Members of Congress and White House staff:


“At a time when our country is facing record debt and trillion dollar deficits, the last thing Washington should do is reward itself with a pay increase. I am calling on President Obama to withdraw his recent Executive Order raising federal salaries — including for Members of Congress. Until a long-term deficit reduction agreement is reached, we should not consider increasing the pay for Congress.”
