In hindsight I should have put an "other" poll option. I'll know better next time.
I kind of agree with the concept. Paying them more gives more people incentive to become one, instead of today where successful surgeons, engineers, etc. make more than our Congressman, as Sowell points out. Because of the low pay relative to other professions, the only reason someone wants to be in the government is for the power. Another problem is when they get elected, they spend too much time trying to get re-elected rather than trying to do their jobs. Limiting them to one term prevents this.
