Editor,This letter is in response the Mark Saal column of April 7 regarding increasing the salaries of Congress, "Pay more money and get better policians? I don't thaink so." The April 4 column by Daniel Schulman, "Congress needs a big fat raise," suggests "members of Congress are overworked and underpaid," and Mr. Saal was outraged by this suggestion. Congress should be paid more money but for different reasons. Congressmen spend most of their time on the job soliciting money for their next re-election campaign.
