A Modest Proposal for Congressional Salaries
By John J. Pitney,Jr. (bio)

Most Americans favor cutting salaries (http://www.usnews.com/blogs/washington-whispers/2009/10/01/poll-cut-congress-and-white-house-salaries-to-slash-federal-debt.html) for lawmakers and White House officials as a way of reducing government spending. Adam Kokesh, seeking the GOP nomination in New Mexico’s Third Congressional District, may thus be onto something. He has a bold proposal for his fellow candidates: pledge that you will refuse any salary in excess of average family income. YouTube - Kokesh Challenges the GOP, Asks for Salary Pledge (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TE8F0JSSR2M).

Please help this get legs... Kokesh already has 2 candidates interested...

Go Adam. Two things. First, unfortunately, those who gravitate toward power tend to be the most corrupt and unprincipled of people, with a handful of exceptions. Second, I do agree that it is absurd that our "public servants" in DC make tremendously more money than the vast majority of Americans. That being said, most of these guys are millionaires so the least they could do is forgo their public salaries since they are so committed to "public service".
