I think they should earn the median income for people in their own district. Then, they should have tax-payer paid housing in D.C that consists of a dorm style building where each person gets their own bedroom and bathroom, spartanly furnished, of course. Their terms should be limited to 2 terms for senators and 6 terms for congressmen. Period. All laws passed must apply to them as well as for us, they cannot exempt themselves from anything.
