Capital punishment for taking bribes would work better and be cheaper. In your plan Howard what is to keep a Congresscritter from taking both the higher salary and the bribes? Another thing, reduce their Congressional pensions by all earnings. And change their pay; nothing from the US, their pay must come from the states they represent in an amount deemed appropriate by their constituents.

Is it a disaster or an OK thing? Also - Trump & The National Enquirer - Is the Economy Here To Serve Us Or Are We Here to Serve the economy?
