First, we need to have term limits. Public service as a Congress person was never intended to become a career. People who serve in public office are supposed to serve the people during their time, and then return to being a part of the people. Creating this separate class of Congresspeople and their families goes against the concepts of public service, and alienates Congress from the people it is meant to serve. Not to mention they are getting f*€&all done these days anyway. I believe that their pay should be based upon their effectiveness. Sort of how teachers have to use performance pay for a measly bonus. It currently feels like taxation without representation. Nope.
