Currently the do-nothing members of Congress receive an annual pay of approximately $179,000. This was approved by Congress itself. There was never a vote of the people for these wages.
Maybe, it is now time for these vacation-bound politicians to have their pay cut to $8.25 an hour or $7.35 an hour in some states like Missouri. I just wonder if they (Congress) could survive in Washington, D.C., on such low wages.
If their wages were cut they would not be outside of Washington every weekend.
It must be nice to take vacation of five weeks when they have not passed any budget for fiscal year 2014, which begins on Oct. 1. Tea Party losers.
