In the dark of night, when thieves come to steal and destroy, the PA legislature voted to increase their pay a whopping 16 percent.
The legislature is now the second-highest paid in the nation. Governor Rendell will sign the bill as he visits Washington DC.
The pay hike follows on the heels of last year's tax increase. It also follows statements from 1995 when legislators claimed the last pay hike scheme would eliminate the need for future raises.
