Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Pitches Pay Increase For Members Of Congress
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested that the salaries for members of Congress should be increased to ease the financial burden on members and decrease the incentive to cheat.
But, according to an INSIDER poll, 55% of Americans think Congress should get a pay cut.
Just 9% of people agree with Ocasio-Cortez and think lawmakers should get a raise.
Studies show that increasing pay for government officials can decrease corruption.
