Actually, that is a pretty good indicator of the founders' concerns about the tendency of governments toward corruption.
The way it reads, you can vote yourself a pay raise, but you have to get reelected, after voting for it, before you can collect.
Make reps think long and hard about pay raises, when they might vote themselves out of a job and never see an extra dime.
