  • Politician SHOULD be paid more!

    They should be paid more because then the creme de la creme, which is the best of the best, will receive the needed amount of money that they need in a year. For example, if a businessman earns one million dollars a year and then decides to drop the job and become a politician he won’t receive enough money, because politicians aren’t paid enough. Many people give assumptions that people who are wealthy will spend the money for themselves. However this is incorrect as they can give it to the needy and people who need it most. Politicians should be paid more.

  • Politicians are hard workers and should be paid!

    Politicians have contributed most of their time to do their job which obviously proves that they should be paid. Politicians are not lazy either they are efficient in what they do and they can help our nation very much. Politicians should be paid more because they are very hard workers

  • The Law should be their ONLY job

    Yes, politicians SHOULD be paid. It should be their ONLY focus to MAKE LAWS. Politicians are NOT supposed to be the same thing as businessmen. Their duty is to help the people and represent the people, not to represent businesses and special interest groups. Plus I wouldn't want my senator working at my McDonalds! Maybe they should live like people in the peace corps. You know like get an allowance but not a salary.

  • Yes but much less

    Sure, they have every right to be paid, they're doing a job. But maybe it would be a good idea to pay them much less than we are right now. I think the people in power have a little too much money on their hands, and maybe it would be a good idea to distribute the wealth a little more evenly.

  • Yes, politicians need to be paid just like anyone else who performs a service. If they are not paid they will have more of an excuse to be corrupt.

    Politicians usually do not make as much money from their salary as they do in the private sector. They are usually very intelligent people that can and usually make more money before and after they serve as politicians. The only thing they lack is wisdom and that is not the same as intelligence. If politicians do not receive a salary they would probably pass law that would make it legal for them to get millions of dollars from special interest groups without getting in trouble. On the other hand if such laws were passed the few honorable politicians that do show integrity toward the general public and their constituents would not be rewarded for standing up for those who are unable to defend themselves.

  • Yes, politicians should be paid

    I agree that politicians should be paid, but the process should go back to how our fore fathers conceived the idea. Politics was not to be a lifelong career. Citizens should leave their current employment for a limited period to represent their local area and once complete, return to their professions. In addition, however, the compensation is too steep when considering the excessive benefits included with the position.

  • Not as much as they are but yes

    The positions politicians occupy need to be paying ones, but not to the degree they currently are. These people need to be humbled some and need to stop raking it in for in many cases accomplishing practically nothing. A wage is needed, but a lower one than many currently are enjoying.

  • They need to be working for the community

    If they are being paid more than it shows that they are above our level and think they are better then us. They are already greedy, let alone bad but this would put the respect for politicians to an all new low. If this happens it would show that we need more humble people in the parliament.

  • Pay them according to what they accomplish

    I believe politicians should receive a fair wage. Let's weed out corruption. Make their salaries incentive based. The better their area does to take care of the people the more they get paid. If you can't pass a budget then maybe take some furlough days until you can. Can't clean up crime in your area then you should not clean up at the bank. People should not be paid for doing nothing!

  • They should be paid a normal amount!

    Because i said so ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

  • They are using us

    Come on , these politicians are laughing at all of us , they don't do what they say, and we are fools , let's throw them all out and start OVER!
    America deserve better, right left, doesn't matter, they are not helping us true tax payers, we must overthrow this fake government

  • They can have other jobs

    Why do they get all the attention. They need to taste the more simple way of life anyways. They can get other jobs and commiting yourself to better good by working for free but contributing to the government. They should be able to get good rates if they have some other jobs

  • No way !!!!

  • Trimming the fat

    It filters out the people who are in it for the money, those who are looking to improve their own situation as opposed for the greater good. Their pay should be enough, but not an incentive to get into governmental positions, the incentive should be that they care enough and want to do something about it.

  • It will give them incentive to get out of office sooner

    This is provided that they are not allowed to accept lobbyists' or special interest money at all and this is strictly enforced. They can accept contributions from people who elected them only. This way a vote for someone will mean that you are really supporting them. This way votes will be cast much more carefully.
