It's less than the people paying for the lobbyists to influence them. That's for sure.

Frankly speaking they should be paid based on performance. And not a damn one of them has passed a budget for at least the last six years.

IMO they owe 6 years back pay.

Nancy Pelosi's Possible Conflict of Interest with Visa

http://nation.foxnews.com/nancy-pelo...-interest-visa

$174,000.00 is just pocket money for them, you have to dig a little to know what I am talking about

If we are worried about inequality of salaries, and salaries based on performance, Wall Street would be another place we should look. A weak government will insure Wall Street never gets put on trial, and has plenty of money to buy the government.

(Pelosi) added that a cut for her would be less significant than for staff members and those who may not be as well off.

if someone believes a salary of $174,000.00 for an elected Representative of the US Congress is an excess amount they know very little about the value in relation to position and monetary reward.

I agree whole heartedly with Nancy Pelosi.

thankfully there is a President that will veto any such theatrics were it ever to reach his desk.

If any of them can earn more somewhere else they are fools to stay where they are.

I have $10 here for Nancy's retirement gift.

Obama Orders Pay Raise For Congress, Federal Workers, Joe Biden
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/1...n_2377714.html

Funny that President Obama does not approve a $9 raise (which will not rise above the poverty level) immediately when he takes the decision to raise instantly the Congress and Federal workers paychecks.

Focusing on this takes the attention off raising the minimum wage or taxing the top 1%. I get it.

Well pretty soon we will be spending $75,690,000 per year to investigate cruise ships because that is more fun than cutting spending.
