All sounds great but we finally ratified the original 11th Amendment just a few years ago and it puts some serious limitations on changing Congressional compensation ~ up or down.
Figure out how to get around that one.

HOORAY DrDan4Congress! It's a start. Legislatures (state and federal) could be part-time jobs with 1/10th pay, NO retirement, NO insurance, NO benefits and NO perks. These POS politicians (yourself not included) can get a full time job doing something productive not progressive.
Thanks for the post, muawiyah. Interesting.

Yours was the race with John (RIP) Armor (aka FReeper CongressmanBillybob), wasn’t it? IIRC I watched one of those debates on this forum. Thanks for being here.
