How much money should politicians be making?

    How much should they be making, even when they don't attend meetings, vote on issues?  They get pensions when they are in office only one year.  They give themselves raises.  Just wondering.

    In my opinion, no politician should be allowed to earn more than the average wage in his/her country.

    Firstly, this would be an incentive for politicians to take initiatives to boost the economy as much as possible.

    Secondly, it would mean those who enter politics primarily out of financial greed would be dissuaded from doing so.

      I agree with you.  The problem we have now is they decide what their own salary is, and what their own pension is going to be.

    I think we should vote out every incumbent delegate and start over.
