Why dont they make what the average median income is for whatever area they work in the amount they get paid? That makes way more sense.

I have not heard anything to that affect, though maybe you can provide some sources?

AirSpoon Apparently your insightful comment is being ignored. Considering you appear to know a great deal more about this issue then the majority of posters, I have a question you may be able to answer. Allegedly there is something, somewhere in Congressional records that states our government can purchase the FRB for 250 million.
I have seen this comment dozens of times and the only ref given is Congressional records. I can only guess, that if this clause / statement exists somewhere it must have been stipulated when the FRB came into being. I have looked for this alleged clause for quite some time with no success. Can you ref it ? If true then all debt owned the FRB could potentially be cancelled . Thanks

I agree with raz. People elected into office don't make very much money to begin with. I would say that for many, their major income derives from other sources so cutting their pay would be little incentive to them.
There are two monetary black holes that I see in this country. Raz already named the CEO's and other corporate money grubbers. The other black hole is the military. I'm not against the military, but after serving in the Air Force I saw first hand the ridiculous amounts of money being spent. Just take 10% of that money and we could fund so many projects here in the States.
