One thing is for certain. If they were limited to the same coverage that the average Medicare recipient receives, I can guarantee that program would be improved over night. I'm so glad this issue is hitting the spotlight.

I find it odd that we elect someone to Congress and they can literary retire for the rest of their lifes. No matter their age. If they serve just one term they get 80% of their salary and full benefits. With the job they are doing in Washington all they do is sit and agrue and we are the ones that have to struggle making and trying to figure out how to survive the higher Taxes that our elected officials think we can afford. This spending is causing every American to suffer. And I do not understand how people can can go along with this present admimistration but do understand that Democrats will vote Democrat even if they do no really want to due to Party Alliance. Democrats are not breaking the Republicans they are breaking th Democrats with Taxes. 5 years and no improvement. The public as whole will tire of this evenually. Can't blame Bush now. If so it show a denial of the true facts.
