    What do you think they deserve? Are these poor people living paycheck to paycheck deserving of a raise? If they are making more money now than in the private sector it seems that they may have overspent since they where elected if they can't afford there mortgages. So what do you think of your comrads now?
    I think they are trying to get to the higher tax cut bracket.

    I think senators and representatives should be paid a salary based upon the national average, which is easily verifiable via the census. Plus, they should have the same average compensation package for benefits. Average vacations, average medical plan, average retirement, etc., that the common American has.

    By the time you add in kick-backs, vacations, and cash under the table so to speak, I am sure they will be alright. I just find it hard to believe that they will be filing bankruptcy, or go into foreclosure.

    They cannot manage their own finances, yet think they know who to manage ours?

    They have passed a law stating they may increase their own salary.
    They pass laws all the time, we have no idea of what laws they pass.
    Cant you do the same. We must stop this!

    I know that living in DC costs more than most places. Also all those black suits have to cost something. However, I think I could squeak by on175k.

    They shouldn't get one penny more then the Private service personal on the front lines of battle!!

    When they need a doctor, the VA clinic is all they get!

    If they can't afford to live in DC, thats to bad, make the needed adjustments like the rest of us have to.

    These people are standing on their own self made pedestal, its time to knock it down!
