Our members of Congress get $174,000 annually or $476.71 per day, every day, 365 days per year.
They work approximately 100 days per year according to their own schedule.
They campaign hard for the job, so they seem to like it.
If we put them on a time clock using 100 days as time worked, we save pay on 265 days; a savings of $126,328.15 per member per year.
They can work more and be paid per diem or less and get less. If they don’t like the pay plan, they can resign or, better still, never run in the first place.
We want public servants, not public leaches.
