I don't see the names of the CEOs who helped crash our economy then demanded bail outs then got their pay plus raises plus bouses plus champaign and a golden parachute retirement complete with medical insurance. The folks on this list work, so they should be entitled to a raise. Do we have a source link for this list?

We shouldn't have bailed them out plain and simple... I won't argue there!
I also think it is ridiculous for those folks in Washington to get such high raises. It is crazy. Not much different than the CEOs getting raises and bonuses.

EXACTYLY! I felt that the CEO bailouts and the extra money tossed at our government officials should have been devided up to the struggling middle class as sort of a "Thank you for supporting us over the years" type of thing.

some of those salaries looked awfully low before the raises compared to private industry wages
