Not only shouldn't they get paid, they should get fired. I'm a loan consultant if I don't SUCESSFULLY GET A LOAN CLOSED--I DON'T GET PAID FOR MY EFFORT! And they should get Obamacare as well!

It would be ideal, and fair, if Congress was paid commensurate with what they accomplished. First, their pay should be no more tha 125% of the national average of worker's pay, excluding executives, CEOs, professional sports and any other absurdly and obscene salary. Then, if our gross national product increases, then they would get a raise equal to the cost of living. Their pay would be based upon beind present and active in debates, discussions and voting.

It would be ideal, and fair, if Congress was paid commensurate with what they accomplished. First, their pay should be no more tha 125% of the national average of worker's pay, excluding executives, CEOs, professional sports and any other absurdly and obscene salary. Then, if our gross national product increases, then they would get a raise equal to the cost of living. Their pay would be based upon beind present and active in debates, discussions and voting. If they were prent for 80% of the time and votes, their pay for that period would be 80% of their potential pay. Congress (and the president) should pay into Social Security and receive the same benefits that We, the People hope to receive when we retire. Congress and the President should be in the same Health Care programs thar We the People will be mandated to partipate in. Congress should not be wined, dined and giftrd by lobbyists. If We the Peole accepted those Perks from someone trying to by our loyalty while we were trying to do our jobs, at best we would be taxed on them, if not charged with accepting bribes. I could go on, but let's have government do the job they were elected to do--provide a solvent government where everyone benefits from the work the government does and provides security and a safe and sane atmosphere for ourselves and future generations of Americans.

They shouldn't but unfortunately when we have a do nothing, accomplished nothing President who goes on vacations despite the dire straits the county is in, how do you expect legislators to act when they see their leader act this way!

I believe and I would like to help but the main problem is if we develop"Many people worry that they may be at risk of developing" the world elite will give us a world crisis to forget our problems!
Another Problem is the majority does not want to fight and the USA sends very quickly his war machinery.....

Richard Crooks They are on a much better WELFARE system than they allow for the people that voted them in... All their SALARIES need to be CUT... We get evaluations and if we have bad ones there are consequences. They don't even care about our issues... I have tried to contact many of the politicains because of the KY laws.... Here they award child molesters money from divorces and let them do alford pleas as well as NOT make them register.... ASSHOLES.... I bet you if it were their family they would be all over it!

Jim Wallace Let's not forget their benefits for life after they leave office. While they sit back and watch pensions being stolen the middle class. I think if your not at the job you should lose those as well.

To all the pompous, self righteous, foppish, stuffed suits in Washington D.C. Do your jobs damnit, lest you find yourselves unemployed, underemployed, struggling to pay rent and utilities or even homeless like so many people you pretend to care about when the truth none of you give a damn about anything but lining your pockets with money you did nothing to earn ergo you do not deserve to have it.

Right on, Tony, but you forget, they don't live under the same rules that they force us to, they have a guaranteed retirement (not SS), much much better insurance, and after they leave office they can all go on to become lobbyists making a great deal more money than they were in Washington. They stand to lose virtually nothing so why do they care? You have to hit them where it hurts and causes the most distress like they have us, but with their "own set of rules" this is not likely to...

You have to hit them where it hurts and causes the most distress like they have us, but with their "own set of rules" this is not likely to happen. I too am very frustrated and think we should fire them all but we can't. What do we do next? I'm open to any and all suggestions!
