Not that she's in Congress but, how much did Susan Rice get paid to help those terrorists in Benghazi get away. More than she got when she helped Bin Laden get a pass when she worked for Clinton when she was a mere 23 years old, I bet. You know Bill made some loot on that deal while he was getting his smegma all over the presidential carpet in the Oral Office.
Now Al Gore is cashing in on terrorist oil money.
It's simple. Just follow the money....and the democrats.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) saw her net worth rise 62 percent last year, cementing her status as one of the wealthiest members of Congress.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) reported at least $3.4 million in wealth, an almost 10 percent rise over the prior year

Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) reported a minimum net worth of $9.8 million and remains one of the wealthiest lawmakers on Capitol Hill, according to his disclosure form
27 million???? LMAO Nancy could give him pocket change.

Pelosi's old man he capitalized on the fact that the San Juan became a dust bowel after they turned off the water and they had 40% unemployment up there and he bought some of that land for a low price. That is what I understand. BUT, she's a democrat and soooo for the people!!

Liberal logic and BS.

Nope, cause I don't have access to back-room deals, and insider trading is illegal for the non-politicos like Pelosi.

The only way to solve the problem is through a constitutional convention called by the states; anything else would simply be blocked by the very Congress we're trying to change.

Allowing Congress to set their own pay & benefits has to be the BIGGEST mistake the founders made when writing the constitution. Of course many of them knew they stood a good chance of becoming one of those who would benefit from their shortsightedness.
