This is the kind of junk that irritates me.
Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) wants to attach a judicial payraise into the auto bailout bill as a "sweetener" to get the GOP to support was is just a really bad idea.
Look, federal judges work very hard and deserve a raise and under normal circumstances, a pay raise for them would sail through Congress and probably rightfully so. But this move by Reid just chafes me.
