It boggles the mind to know that some members of Congress (like Cantor) make close to $250k annually and sometimes more, depending on the length of service. What could Cantor, et al possibly know about the needs of an hourly wage worker?
We could save money an easier way: End some of Congress' vacation time and extend their work week to 4.5 days (with a half-day on Friday to get back to their home states.) That way, the taxpayers of the United States will finally get their money's worth.
