Not just pick, but PAY.
Right now US Cong and US Sens paychecks are issued from the US Department of the Treasury, AN EXECUTIVE BRANCH AGENCY, which the president directs and controls.
Do not mix up the US Treasury and the US Department of the Treasury. The US Treasury is authorized directly by the constitution and is under the authority of Congress. The US Department of the Treasury is authorized under War Powers and the Trading with the Enemy Act and is under the authority of the President.
Congressmen and Senators are paid by the DEPT TREAS not by the Treasury nor by their states as they once were.
