166k isn't going to attract the top legal minds. Instead it might attract people who write weak opinions that wind up going through multiple levels of appeals before the case is cleaned up, costing millions in the process.

An independent judiciary was the number one goal of the founders. I think Roberts is doing the right thing.

oh i have no doubt it will not attract the best minds.  but IIRC from HS gubmint class, the salary can't go beyond the presidents?....  and even the president's salary pales compared to what a good 40-50 year old attorney can draw, correct ?  so  most of these guys should already be retired rich, earning 'spending $'  while doing something they care about/enjoy, right?

The First U.S. Congress voted to pay George Washington a salary of $25,000 a year (about $531,000 in 2005 terms) a significant sum in 1789. Washington, already a wealthy man, refused to accept his salary. Similarly, John F. Kennedy donated his salary to charities.[2]

Traditionally, the President is the highest-paid government employee. Consequently, the President's salary serves as a traditional cap for all other federal officials, such as the Chief Justice. A raise for 2001 was approved by Congress and President Bill Clinton in 1999 because other officials who receive annual cost-of-living increases had salaries approaching the President's. Consequently, to raise the salaries of the other federal employees, the President's salary had to be raised as well. The President's monetary compensation is minuscule in comparison to the CEOs of most Fortune 500 companies and comparable to that of certain kinds of professionals e.g. attorneys and physicians in some parts of the United States. Overall the vast majority of US presidents were very affluent upon entering office and thus were not dependent on the salary.
