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?
I think everyone needs a living wage to be functional. Positions of greater responsibility are generally better compensated. In the case of politicians, I think that money they receive that is not part of their authorized salary is a big issue.
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.
