Once they are out of office, they should get the same medical as everyone else. Ends when you leave. No trips on taxpayer money. NO stock purchases or sales while in office. 2 term limits.
If they really want to serve their country they should get paid and recieve the same benefits as our military. Then they could honestly say they were serving. The problem with most of them they think they are the elite. No more free trips period!!!!!
In Islam,it is not good to spend too little or too much.You should be always at the middle to give some charity to poor people.You can even give some money to poor from your-to-spend-money so that you feel with them.This is the greatness of Islam,not some lavish trips spending too much money and not caring about the poor!
PROMISE THE PEOPLE YOU WILL PAY YOUR FAIR SHARE OF TAXES, AND BE HONEST ABOUT IT. WORK A 5 DAY WEEK JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE! And BE FOR ALL THE PEOPLE, NOT JUST SOME OF THEM! WE ARE ALL AMERICANS! NOW START ACTING LIKE AMERICANS!
The Congressional piggies have done it again. It just never fails to amaze me how lazy and greedy these men are and the worse part is that the public never finds out until it's too late to stop it. Most of the cases mentioned are Republicans but I'm sure there's a number of Democrats who have been flying of the magic carpet of taxpayer dollars. This just has to stop!!!
This money spent from the TAX PAYERS' expences must be recovered from the members of the Congress.The country is broke and due to recession hundreds of Jobs have been lost.
The State of Oklahoma is in dire straits due to the extensive damage by the Tornado.The recovered Tax Payers money should bre spent on releif in this State. Precious lives have been lost and it will take years for the damage to be undone.
I think it's time to end the politicians' taxpayer-paid perks
and make them work 5 days a week at minimum/living wage
like everybody else!!!
No more 6 or 7-figure salaries or voting themselves pay raises!!
Enough is enough!!!
It's time for the American people to take to the streets
and literally shake up the status quo in HUGE fashion!!
Yeah, we bust our butts and scramble for a few crumbles while the fat cat politicians cruise the world in luxury and are rewarded with extravagant perks....this makes NO SENSE! Use the power of the vote and get these old farts OUT!
Governments should make it a rule that if politicians want to go on overseas trips it is not done at the taxpayers expense. If they were no longer able to offset this sort of thing against tax, or, even better if a government said that any overseas trips were to be paid for by the politician concerned, they would all suddenly find these things weren't so necessary after all.
They have their priorities,because if they really cared,they would put people first.
Politicians are making a big effort to line their own pockets. Most often that is why they go into politics. Contacts. It takes a special person to even be in politics - often greedy and no conscience.
