Give them minimum wage until bills are passed; balance the budget (keep our nation fiscally sound for our future) and they get a bonus; increase our military and secure our borders.
Bonuses if Washington can accomplish one fiscal, one military and one social issue in a year; they can earn their money if they set priorities and get it done.
Bet we would not see many golf outings, trips to Hawaii, or five-week congressional breaks, and we may even see adults working together without name calling and schoolyard bullying.
