The United States Senate has voted itself a $23,200 pay raise in exchange for banning the thousands of dollars in outside speaking fees that most members pocket each year. Almost certain to become law, the raise would close the gap between the $101,900 that senators now pay themselves and the $125,100 paid to the 435 members of the House.
The Evening Sun wants to know whether you approve of the pay raise for the senators.
