    The purpose of the Legislative Branch is to enact laws that obligate or prohibit behaviors as needed to steer the country towards a better future for all. Creating a budget, raising or lowering taxes, approving international agreements for trade, defense, or other cooperation, creating regulations, or even declaring war are some different ways that the Legislative Branch fulfills its purpose.

    The legislators should not be setting their own salaries because that is self-dealing. Legislators at the federal level are representatives of each state. Therefore, the state legislatures should be setting the salaries of their own federal representatives. Legislators at the state level are representatives of each region such as a city or county. Therefore, each region should set the salary of their own state representatives. The people of each region elect their own mayor or other local officials and should vote on their salary directly in referendums.
