Congressman Peter DeFazio Has Rejected Every Congressional Pay Raise and Donated the Money to Scholarships

Independents are tired of the partisan bickering in Washington, tired of nothing getting done and tired of politicians saying one thing and doing another. Fortunately, we have Peter DeFazio in our corner putting his money where his mouth is and working every day to break through the gridlock.

DeFazio has voted against every congressional pay raise and has refused to take those raises.

Instead, he uses the money to fund scholarships at five Oregon community colleges. By the end of 2018, DeFazio will have contributed $437,598 of after-tax dollars to fund 270 scholarships and to reduce the deficit. He believes that everyone should be able to access college education without crippling debt. He's working to expand job training programs, increase college affordability, and reduce student loan interest rates.

DeFazio is supported by Independent Party leaders, including:

Linda Williams, Co-chair, Independent Party of Oregon Dan Meek, Co-chair, Independent Party of Oregon *Sal Peralta, Secretary, Independent Party of Oregon

As Independent as Oregon.

Peter DeFazio's common-sense proposals aim to create good-paying jobs, expand access to affordable health care and develop options outside of the for-profit marketplace, restore economic and educational opportunities, hold government accountable and tip the scales of inequality back in favor of hard-working Oregonians.
