Changing the law would certainly raise their level of concern regarding getting their work done...which is what they are elected and paid to do! Why, when they continue to muck up the country should they get raises? There is a reason they have a lower popularity rating than the President and the media...they stopped working on our behalf decades ago. Maybe this would get their attention. I applaud this Republican’s efforts, but will it pass? No. That’s because most only care about their own power and re-election. Sad.
