Article 5 of the constitution allows the people to do this but it will take people to participate to get it done

They should be entitled to no post employment benefits unless they've spent 10 years on active duty. I propose we build barracks for them near the Capital Building and they live there of pay the difference. Their pay should be the same as enlisted military. Your first year E1 then up to no more than E9.
Same medical and benefits as the military as well.

interesting theory, but I'm not even comfortable knowing that people fighting for my freedom barely average minimum wage as E1 - if u add up the hours, it's actually less than that. I don't want the men running this country so broke that they're forced to accept bribes...just sayin...i mean seriously....

They collect a lifetime of pensions and medical even if they only serve one term. They are not at their jobs over half the time they are in session. When they are in session they do nothing of very little. I'd like a job where you do very little and receive high pay and free medical. They all need to be thrown out, especially the ones that are like Mitch McConell. He acts like a God and throws wrenches into anything that he doesn't like, even from his whole party. Most of my life I have been...

Most of my life I have been a Republican but no more. After hearing how they agreed to vote no to anything Obama put out there, not even knowinnn what it would be, they all decieded to vote know. I don't see them voting for lower salaries and paying for their own medical. All they care about is getting relected to keep feeding off our money and taking money, etc. from lobbyest. I once was proud to say I was an American but not anymore. We are not the top, free, country in this world anymore. More crime rate, illegal citizens, our children are way down on the list of knowledge. We pay people who are to lazy to work, and pay women to keep havinng children out of wedlock over and over again, our morals are garbage and have spit in Gods face. If you don't like what I have wrtten, too bad. We still, I don't know how much longer, have free speach.

Military personnel who serve less than 20 years do not receive pay and medical benefits for life: why should Senators and Representatives receive salaries and benefits for life after serving a short time? Also, while serving, they should receive the same medical benefits as the military, in my opinion.

Alice can I suggest a slight modification of your proposal? How about we allow all those who serve their country in the military....receive salaries and benefits for life after serving a short time? Seems only fair and all salary increases throughout the military are tied to pay increases approved for our elected officials in the Senate and House of Representatives?

Just fire the idiots! most of them don't give a rats ass about the common people anyway--They should all be replaced and that goes for the Pres and vice Pres too.What were YOU people thinking WHEN you voted anyway.What a stinkin mess we are in and will NEVER ever DIG outselves out, we are leaving one heck of a $$ mess to our children and grand children. ALL I can say is WAKE UP and smell the coffee.

We have to get organized enough that we don't have "crazies" but educated people that can truly see WE HAVE TO CHANGE! We are not looking for the same results from our votes.....WE WANT EVERYONE TO EARN THEIR PAYCHECK!!

What a great idea! The same people who want to reduce the benefits of working people and others, we are telling to be accountable to the American people. Some of the same people who favor preventing government and private workers from freely exercizing their rights to belong to a union and negotiate their pay and benefits with their employers are being told they need to negotiate with us, the American people, their employer for their pay and benefits. It's only fair, is it not?

Remember prior POTUS Bush raising the president's salary from $200,000 to $400,000. I remember.
