    Rep.

    Lee Terry (R-Neb.) says Congress can't afford a pay cut because its last salary increase occurred six years ago.



    Terry, considered one of the Republican Party’s most vulnerable incumbents this cycle, rebuffed his Democratic challenger state Sen.

    Brad Ashford on Monday.

    Ashford wants to cut lawmakers' salary by 10 percent and, if elected, would voluntarily return that amount until he gets the cut passed.



    "What he's not telling you is that Congress hasn't had a cost of living increase since 2008, when I led the charge for a freeze," Terry shot back, according to KMTV
