Luetkemeyer Votes to Block Pay
Increase as Missourians Struggle to Make Ends Meet

           
WASHINGTON, D.C. _ U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-9) today voted to
block pay raises for members of the House.

On his first
day in office, Luetkemeyer had sponsored a separate measure to stop such pay
raises.

           
“I voted to block the pay raise because I could not in good conscience support
receiving a pay increase from the same hard-working taxpayers who are currently
struggling to provide for their families during these tough economic times,”
Luetkemeyer said. “The people of the 9th District expect me to lead
by example, and that is why I have embraced the notion that what’s good for the
goose is good for the gander when it comes to Congressional pay
raises.”
