Only a Western Democrat
The system is now such that Congress gets a pay raise without voting. Contrast that to the frozen minimum wage.
Your Personal Note:
I love Matheson. I don't know if he can climb the poltical ladder much higher in Utah, but maybe he should at least ponder a run for President?....

Horribly, horribly shameless plug. Forgive me:
I now have a blog! So for those of you who like my rants, or for those of you who hate me with all of your might, let me know! And tell your friends and family so they can rant too! See, we Democrats support family values.

I love Matheson too. I have worked on his campaigns, and interned in his Washington DC Office. I think Jim has a good chance of at least getting elected to a state wide office. He has a huge district which gives him a good base of support should he choose to run for a state office. Jim is a very savy politico though, and won't make the mistake of running in a race he doesn't think he has a really good shout at winning ie challenging Hatch, Bennett, or Huntsman.

Senator Reid ties Congressional pay to the minimum wage issue. Good for Harry!
"Congress is going to have earn its raise by putting American workers first: A raise for workers before a raise for Congress," said Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada.
