If congress was paid minimum wage how would that impact the way they vote?


How would America be different, say one year after congress had lived on minimum wage? Would they be more sympathetic to the average working class family?

    Bribes and favors are a BIG problem in politics. Thanks Christin.

    Hi Ron. So do you think that congress needs a higher salary to be functional?

    Hi Lisa. You're right about lower salaries triggering more corruption. The problem isn't rich guys running for office. The problem lies in then actually being elected because of lack of voter turnout or irresponsible voting.
