So in essence, if you don't want congress using all those "loopholes" they should get paid anywhere from 20-100 million a year so they aren't tempted by insider trading and the like.

Or you know, just apply the law to congress like they do little people.
They'd still take brides and make sweetheart deals. Many of them are only doing the job to make money. Give them 20 mil a year and they'd want more.
