Pelosi: Congressional Pay Cut Undermines Our 'Dignity'

On Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she was against cutting congressional pay because it would undermine the dignity of her job.

“I don’t think we should do it; I think we should respect the work we do,” Pelosi said. “I think it’s necessary for us to have the dignity of the job that we have rewarded.”

As The Hill notes, her comments were in response to questions about the sequester, which would force congressional offices to make across-the-board cuts including to the salaries of members of Congress and their staffers.
