"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

If they were paid for the quality of their work, they would owe the American people money.  Besides, there are A LOT of people living and working in the District of Corruption area who make a lot less and manage to live a decent life.  Maybe his complaint is indication of the REAL problem with the government; their members don't know how to live within their means and spend taxpayer money the same way.

Someone should take this "man of the people" and actually introduce him to some real people, y'know, the vast majority of Americans who make substantially less than $174,000 a year.

What a crock of sh*t
