Congressman: Members of Congress are underpaid

“I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid,” Moran said. “I understand that it’s widely felt that they underperform, but the fact is that this is the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world.”

Members of Congress make $174,000 per year currently.

Moran added: “Our pay has been frozen for three years and we’re planning on freezing it a fourth year. … A lot of members can’t even afford to live decently in Washington."

Moran said he will introduce an amendment to fix the problem during debate over the Legislative Branch bill.

Given Congress's near-record-low approval ratings, of course, it's unlikely many Americans will sympathize with members' financial plights.

Moran, for what it's worth, represents a district just across the river in Nothern Virginia, so he doesn't have to deal with maintaining two homes, like many members do. Some members have taken to sleeping in their offices while Congress is in session.

The two counties in Moran's district -- Arlington County and Fairfax County -- both rank in the top five nationally when it comes to average income.

 
Sounds like Congress needs to live within their means and move out to Bmore

They are overpaid.

Don't forget how much of their staff works for nothing.

Free healthcare forever.

And the copious amount of laws they write (tax breaks, low-interest loans, campaign finance workarounds, etc/) to give themselves financial perks.

Oh and can't forget the fact that they then use their position to secure themselves super high paying jobs and board positions even while they are in office that are in direct conflict with the job they are supposed to be doing.

And the money they waste to "live decently" hahaha.

Nah, they can miss me with that.

Yeah their next job is usually very lucrative.  Lobbyists make lots of money and they typically come from this particular cesspool.   I don't know why more of them don't "retire"Stern Smile
