Since our representatives must be of the people, their salary must also be like the people's. The current U.S. median income is about $26,000 a year. Half of the people make less than this figure, half make more.
Let us make an amendment that fixes congress' pay to be equal to the national median income. Then Senators and Congressman will all receive a fair share of the benefit that their labor provides.
