Congress STOP Stealing from the People.
Remember that members of Congress, beyond what they make on that particular salary level are in an exclusive network with almost unlimited connections and lobbyists offering further enticements.
Be in our shoes and see how far you can get,try it,see what it's like.
A change in congressional pay and benefits is WAY overdue! Why is it that you constantly talk about cuts in spending (education, welfare benefits, social security, medicare, health care, etc.,etc, etc.) for programs that affect so many in our country who are surviving with so LITTLE yet you don't look at what you're giving to YOURSELF on a perpetuating basis?? This is NOT the way a democracy is supposed to operate!! Please have the decency and courage to turn this issue around!
seems to me they have enough benefits, and even after retirement, do better than anyone else. Hold the line
It's time to start listening to the "little" people who elected you.
the "little people don't elect anybody, unfortunately, big money does the electing, we just vote, and the popular vote, or the peoples vote. doesn't elect anybody.
Jim- you are complaining about the Electoral College - which only applies to picking the president. All the legislators depend on the direct vote to get elected.
As mentioned it is the most laziest congress ever. Mainly due to partisan politics and the unwillingness of the teabaggers to compromise. Meanwhile nothing gets resolved and things continue to get worse.
Congress needs to live like we have to live & then maybe they would understand where we are coming from.
They get paid way too much and don't even work a 5 day week. Their Schedule was posted on CNN. In August, they don't even work a week at all.
SCREW THE PEOPLE CONGRESS WANTS WHAT THEY WANT WHEN THEY WANT IT EVER HOW THEY CAN GET IT AND NO MATTER HOW MUCH SUFFERING THEY PUT ON YOU AND ME!!!!
