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
Let Justice be served for the People of America, end the Fed, and less Gov while we're at it :)
Totally agree! If we have to have obamacare it should be good enough for them also. They should have short terms and no pension.
Government by the people for the people! Not above the people
Why do you feel you should always get automatic pay raises, the rest of the country doe s not, and pensions, and health care benefits, on and on and on! Is there no end to your Greed? Lourding it over the people, the people are sick, literally sick at heart at what is happening to this Country, and you still insist on lineing your pockets as much as possible! Remember Ebenezer Scrooge...you will soon have his fate unless changes are made!
Are you not suppose to be working for the people, you are an employee of ours, you don't sit up on a pedestal looking down at us! Try to understand your position, you shameful bunch!
This needs to get forward and activated fast. Time to stop the entitlements that the member of Congress (House & Senate) feel they are owed! They have done nothing but line their pockets at the expense of taxpayer and it is time to end this practice. No more pension for life, no more benefits for life...time they experience first hand what they have dumped on the America taxpayer. Left them find jobs just like we have to...
they could start balancing the budget by living on a salary that a normal American Tax paying citizen as to live off of...then as no other private enterprise offers benefits upon retirement equal to what we pay into it, these jokers who cant agree on anything should not be rewarded by extravagant retirement packages and insurance coverage. Let them plan around a normal retirement as well....no special perks...since they have put us in the situation we are in.
Thanks Maggie Meyers for doing this-Get the money out, get the service/duty/honor back in. It is a big money grab, with so many elected officials rotating out to becoming Lobby toadies. We are letting them ruin our America. So many good ideas offered here!
