"Let’s figure out how much the members of Congress receive on an hourly basis and then let’s make that the minimum wage. Congressmen receive an annual salary of $174,000. That’s comes out to $3,346 per week. With a 40-hour work week, that means that the members of Congress are receiving $83.00 per hour. Why not set the minimum wage at $83? Why should ordinary people get less than what the members of Congress get paid?" (01/09/12)
