  •  Index Congressional Salary to Min Wage (3+ / 0-)

    I've been saying this for at least 20 years.  Federal pay for congress, judges, etc. should be indexed to inflation and minimum wage.  There should be no way to decouple it without some sort of supermajority of both houses.  That would fix the problems with both in one fell swoop.

    I'm still pissed that they doubled Dubya's salary.  And the fucker spent most of the time on vacation.   The conservative fuckwads that they are...

    Note to Democratic leadership: I'm all out of carrots, but I still have my stick.

    •  we differ just a little bit (0+ / 0-)

      they should be paid minimum wage & have to punch a time clock just like most of america does.

      also, when they vote themselves a raise a majority of americans will also benefit.
