Senators Get $4,700 Raise, Give Us the Runaround

Must be nice to not even need your salary -- because when we asked one senator in D.C. yesterday if Congress should have accepted a $4,700 pay raise per member in a failing economy, he defended himself by saying he donates his entire salary to the community anyway.

Both Senator Bob Corker (R) of Tennessee and Senator Richard Lugar (R) of Indiana played dodgeball with the same question ... and each answered exactly how you'd expect a true politician to respond.
