“Whenever an office, through increase of fees or otherwise, becomes so profitable, as to occasion many to apply for it, the profits ought to be lessened by the legislature.”
– Ben Franklin
I think that this could be one of the largest problems with Congress… Senators and Representatives get paid too much. The fundamental problem is that Congress can vote to get a higher salary. I do not know what we can do to change this but it is food for thought.
