    RUIZ. Mr. Speaker, today I had to make the difficult decision of voting for a pay raise for myself or against continuing a pay freeze for federal workers. I voted for H.R. 273 because although I believe it is unfair to balance the budget on the backs of hard working middle- class families, I could not accept a pay raise for myself. I recognize the critical contributions federal employees make every day to the health and well-being of our country and I thank them for their service. I am honored to serve the people of California's 36th Congressional District and I will continue to work to do the right thing for my district and to ensure that the American dream is attainable for everyone.
