    NO ONE serving our country should make more than the president. Talk about installing ceilings!! I think $500K annually is the most a politician should be able to make...and that would be for POTUS.

    And don't forget the "same salary as when in office" for LIFE after they leave office, even it's only ONE TERM!!!

    The system has been taken over by thieves and pimps. Without a total clean out, we'll be speaking Chinese in ten years. Or joining the homeless.

    IN 2007 they appropriated 3,027,000,000 cannot find the breakdown.. but probably close to these numbers..

    The country was destroyed a long time ago... by idiotic right wing posters who do not know their ass from their elbow...

    Those are the appropriations for the offices...it covers interns, assistants, secretaries etc. The more high profile the offices, the more money they appropriate- their pay itself is limited.

    Pelosi makes $223,500
    Steny Hoyer makes $193,400
    Boener makes $193,400

    Harry Reid makes $193,400
    Mitch McConnel makes $193,400

    It must be suck to be a minority in 8 years. When you finally become a majority party, you 'grab' everything you see and leave NOTHING to taxpayers.

    You said that you had no money BUT you managed to find the money for yourself. The government's credit card has no limit.
    By the way, if you add up all the expenses, your Democrats give themselves 4 BILLION dollars.

    Obama MUST BE A LIAR when he said that we didn't have any money.

    Changes we can hope right?

    So, are you saying that these "appropriated" funds can NOT be used to pay each politician? Nancy gets her $223K and that's it, right?

    I find it hard to believe she'd need 20 times her salary to pay staff and expenses considering her staff shouldn't make half what she does.

    That's the base pay for them as they selected for themselves and put in place after the recent election per the 27th amendment. That's not including the travel expenses for flying to/from her district that all of them get compensated for.

    Here's the total pay expenditures for her office:

    Representative Nancy Pelosi (California) - Staff salaries from LegiStorm

    As of the most recent quarter posted she had 31 people on her staff...

    Here's the amounts and people for the other bigwigs in Congress:
