Was the 27th amendment really needed? All it does is delay pay increases until after the elections. Given the number of incumbents nowadays, this wouldn't do anything.

A law passed by Congress would have the same effect...

Well the only reason it exists is because it was proposed along with the first 10 amendments.. or perhaps slightly after, yet it wasn't properly approved until 1992.
