Allow math to determine congressional salaries, not Congress

The salaries of our elected officials range from 77%-580% higher than workers with the same educational background, with 92% coming in greater than 100%. We're connected and capable of gathering more information than could've ever been imagined by our founding fathers. That being said, congressional salaries should be based on the averages of those with equal education and experience. It's time for all of our elected officials to start receiving salaries relative to real life. They should feel the cost of living increases themselves. How can they possibly represent and serve us when our state of being is an abstract concept to them. The American people are literally being robbed of their hard earned money while their leaders are clueless to the price of milk and eggs.
