I know he does, I just can't find the specific amount or an article that proves it.

Neocons I'm debating with are dodging the real issues and calling him a hypocrite for pork and taking a salary. :rolleyes:

he doesnt give back part of his salary.. he gives back part of his annual office budget..

about 95-100K last year I believe.. I believe they all get a million dollar a year office budget.

I know in years past he's give 75k etc.. probably goes up like inflation

Really? I could have sworn he gave back his personal salary as well.

I found the article on Daily Paul about him giving back 90k last year and 100k this year. http://www.house.gov/apps/list/press/tx14_paul/MRESurplus.shtml

Maybe youre thinking of the congressional health insurance and the congressional pension plan.. he doesnt take any of that.

And the congressional pension plan is like $50k a year for life... if I was in congress I would take it.

That article you linked doesn't say anything about his salary. It says right there it's "from his allotted office budget."

He doesn't participate in the congressional pension program, though, if that's what you meant.

Ugh, looks liked I talked myself into a trap on the other forum I post on. I might have been thinking of Kokesh, who said he'll refuse to accept full income, and assumed he got that idea from Paul first.

Oh well. None of them are receptive to Paul, this'll just be their newest excuse to dislike him.
