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.
finally got my signature to post. yeah!
I kinda figure if your not part of the solution.... Your part of the problem.... Just saying....
I learned some things about this today... http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/uscongress/a/congresspay.htm
Read some of it and always looking for more. I guess they can spy and we can find info also on them . Thanks
Good example president. Bush been in the hospital for over a month in Houston for bronchitis and fever, my insurance wouldn't even alow me to be admited for that!
If ever there need another law passed this is the first one that need to passed. If it can be done on the internet (Thanks to our freedoms being breached) our voice will be heard. And if they choose only to accept it in writing for them to see WE need to make the same argument. No law shall pass without everyone one of us seeing and acknowledging it. So we have a stand off....FUCK YOU CONGRESS WE CAN VOTE ALL OF YOU OUT. lET OBAMA TRY AND TAKE THAT LAW AWAY. TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!
Retired people are suffering, haven't received an increase for cost of living in 4 years, how can we live with such misserable income, ah and I have to pay premium for Medicare Insurance.
You all know this will never reach the congress and will have no effect on what their perks are.
Brew tea, brew tea, brew tea.
I signed the congressional pay petition but I have mixed feelings about this because -
1) If we don't pay our elected officials decently, then only the very wealthy will be likely to run for office.
2) Elected officials that are struggling financially are more likely to succumb to bribery, lobbying & other ploys of the moneyed interests.
They are talking about cutting Entitlement Programs such as Medicare, Medicaid. Well they should cut Congresses Entitlement Program, Just because they are Congress or even retired Congress they are entitled to the same pay and lifetime healthcare. That's not fair to anyone.
not only should there be a limit on there pay and benefits, i think they should not be able to serve more than three terms.that's congress and the senate.and there should be some kind of limit for the supreme court...
