Fox News is starting to ask the hard question

Is Congress smoking crack?

I take this opportunity to call for raising Senators' and Congresscritters' pay to somewhere around $1 million per year.

You say that they aren't worth it? I agree, but if we don't make their salaries competitive with private industry, we always will get people who are power freaks without the offsetting value of any competence. Maybe with higher pay some decent people will run for the jobs.

Even if not, the little extra it would cost wouldn't be so much as a blip in the budget. So what's to lose?
