    Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va., center, greets guest at a pet adoption event sponsored by the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus which he chairs to highlight animal welfare issues in Congress, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Friday, April 4, 2014. Moran said this week that “members of Congress are underpaid,” and the congressional salary of $174,000 a year for most isn’t enough for some. Moran, whose Virginia district abuts Washington, says he will offer an amendment to legislation to fund Congress' budget next week to help lawmakers with the cost of living. (AP Photo/J.
