Should our lawmakers get $11,000 raise?

Pro: it's the office, not the kook in it. (Montini)

It's true that government service is supposed to be about service, but the reality of the working world is that without a real, livable wage we will never get the kind of quality people we need. 

Con: The kooks are getting per diem; a raise won't buy us better kooks.  (Roberts)

Per diem scam aside, I could be talked into supporting a pay raise if I thought it would buy us a better Legislature.  But alas, I fear it'll just bring us the same old suspects in nicer suits.
