Twenty-seventh Amendment

Congressional pay raises
No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened.

What does this mean??
This means that congress can't give themselves a raise, rather they must be reelected.

Why this video??
This video is perfect! It explains the 27th amendment to the T. Congress has to be reelected to receive an approved raise.
