State legislators...at least the ones from up here....do a lot of work and it takes of lot to get elected...I have no problem with them making as much an any number of other people at the State Office Building.
I know we'll get the usual responses on this, but so what ? I would cut out the lulus and impose a defined contribution pension plan on the lawmakers...but beyond that, they perform an essential function in a representitive republic.
Besides, you should beware the pols who brag about how little they want to work for...Usually you get what you pay for.
