$1,703.09 per Day

Assuming an eight hour work day, that's $212.88 an hour. Not bad for a job whose only requirements are that you're a U.S. citizen and at least 25 years old...

The USA Today reports that the House of Representatives will spend just 97 days in Washington this year and each congressman will earn at minimum $165,200.00 for his or her trouble.

That's a full two weeks less than the "Do Nothing" Congress of 1948.
