It is time to do away with the career politicians.
Article 5 of the constitution allows the people to do this but it will take people to participate to get it done
If this doesn't get 500,000 votes there is something wrong with America.
I think it's disgraceful that a bunch of juvenile people get paid as much as they do while in office and for life. No wonder they don't get anything done. I worked for the County for 34 years. I was making paulper wages compared to these people and believe I had to have my work completed every day or I would have been fired. What is wrong with our government. Talk about greed and corruption. I love my country but I have become terrified of my government. Shame on all of you.
This petition should also require that if congress do not do there job. They don't get paid. Plus, before c the American government and CEO's of businesses and banks lay employees off. They give up at least 10% of their salaries.
Its so unfair and unconstitutional for them to serve only one term of just 2 years, 4 years or 6 years and then get a lifetime pension when we the people have to work 20 to 40 years to get our pensions and SS. The US Constitution says they they have to live by the same laws and under the same programs as we do! Just like if we have to live under Obamacare so do they! But no, they are exempt from it and have a better healthcare plan then we the people do! Its unfair and unconstitutional!
Let's limit their terms in office. No more than 8 years at the very most!
Sorry ass Bastards, don't even deserve half of what they so graciously pay themselves. They work maybe three , four months outta the year. And, the rest 'o the time I imagine they just find ways to live their great ass lives, on top, lookin down at all of us , who actually keep this country goin.
This would be the best thing to happen, they forget that we put them in office and they feel like what they want they are right , which is way wrong.
we have 2 many of these leaches setting on a golden chair doin nothing, get rid of some of them.
also cut their benifits 2 the same as ours.
LISTEN the AMERICAN PUBLIC HAS SPOKEN...limit the term in office, once out of office go get a regular job and pay for own benefits like the rest ot the public sector does. Representing America is a priviledge not an oblagation.
