    They shouldn't even get that. Really , Congress should be able to finish up their work in 6-8 weeks for the year and earn their living in their usual professions.

    If they are a lawyer, they should continue to be earning their living in a court room, if they are a doctor, in the operating room, if they are a bartender , in the tap room.

    A per diem and transportation to Washington for the swearing in should be enough.

    And really, with modern communications software, there is no reason for all these folks to gather in Washington that much at all. No reason why AOC can't talk to people from an office in the Bronx and Tim Ryan from his Y-Town office, or even from the campaign trail in Iowa.
