I don't see my name on the recent signatures, so I'm not sure if it went thru. I am all for this thou. It's about time they are treated like they actually do work for us and not that they are a part of the elite not having to work for a paycheck like the rest of us.

Notice how everytime the politicians talk about cutting spending, they never cut anything of theirs. It's always the programs that benefit the Americaqn people that are the first to be cut.

The way it is set up now, once they are elected they are set up for life! Why bother to keep promises and be concerned for constituents? I do not know if there is a way to fire or impeach a congressman

Being elected to serve our country should not be better than winning the lottery, when those who volunteer to serve as soldiers/protect our country don't get better than winning the lottery.
